So, I have a small one car garage. It was built in the 50's and holds my car, but would not hold an SUV.
Anyway, there is enough room for me to have a bench at the back of the garage and still park my car in there. I could conceivably have a 6ft x 2ft bench there.
To maximize everything, I was thinking of making it a "combination" bench on castors so I can roll it to the middle of the garage when I want to work. By "combination" bench, I mean having my 10" Ryobi table saw at one end and having a router incorporated into it as well.
My original thought was to have the saw at one end and the router on the other, with the blade and bit lowered when not cutting/routing so I can use most of the space. Some guys at work suggested the router go to the middle of the table, because the bit hole will not cause any real issues.
I've also thought of having the saw end be something where I could have a removable top, so that I only insert the saw into the bench when I need to cut.
As much as I would love to have a dedicated saw station and dedicated router table, the space limitations prevent that.
What is everyone else's thoughts on this "combination" bench?
"Get better every time."
