Out feed table

My first project in the shop was an out feed table for my new table saw.  I managed to construct it with scrap plywood I had laying around.  I just had to buy the MDF top.  I need to make another one because it turned into a tool/part/scrap holding table in about 3 minutes.

Added a shelf on the bottom.

Workshop wall

My workshop is now walled off with insulation woven between staggered studs.  I'm hoping that will keep the noise down.  Now I just need a door and some mud.

Storage room

Since we have such a large basement (and mostly because we have so much junk) we decided to wall off part of it for a storage room.  Below is the progress.  I made a bunch of ugly but sturdy shelves out of scrap wood, 2x4s, and cheap plywood.  I also ran separate electric so it has its own lighting and electrical outlet.

New Tablesaw

Now that I have room for a workshop it was time to invest in a new table saw.  For the longest time I had my heart set on a grizzly cabinet saw, but found this at home depot the other day.  It got good reviews and was much cheaper.  Hopefully I made the right choice.  Thanks for helping me put it together (and more importantly carry it down the stairs) Steve.

Definitely an upgrade
