One of the biggest challenges of building is having a good workspace. Building without a workspace is like cooking without a kitchen. Now your workspace doesn’t have to be super fancy or expensive – it’s more about good organization and thoughtful tool placement. The last thing you want to do is haul your saw out of storage everytime you build. That would be like pulling your oven out of storage everytime you wanted to bake.
I had the great honor of helping design the RyobiNation Dream Workshop.
In the workshop, we found homes for all the heavy tools. The mitersaw is on a cart that pulls out. The storage bases are carts that pull out to support your boards on either side of the miter saw.
The tablesaw is also a heavy tool. To make it more accessible, we mounted it on a cart with locking casters.
We matched the height of the tablesaw deck to the height of the same carts that support the miter saw (and also can be used as work tables)
So the workcarts can be used as infeed, outfeed, or side feeds for the table saw. This is a big deal when using a tablesaw as it essentially increases the size of your deck.
