I see one used stainless wash up sink in your area listed on Facebook marketplace that’s not bad. The junk one I have is a life saver (I’ll switch it one day)

Looks like really good utilization of space under the stairs. I really like the overhead.
Does the table saw have any adjustments underneath to true the blade to the fence and square it to the top?

Ill keep on eye on a used sink. I always forget about FB Marketplace.

Table saw. Maybe. Ive looked a few times, but not seriously. It should. I should flip it over and look. But yea, the amount of times I have seized a piece of wood between the fence and blade... Scary stuff.

Tried to do this yesterday. Bought a 3ft instead of 4ft shelf piece... returned that today. Did other things... Anyways something simple, MORE SHELVES! Probably just use these for long term lightweight stuff.

I also bought more lumbar...

And here is a bunch of that lumber I mentioned all cut up! I need to go buy some simpson ties. I dont do pocket holes for screws unless really needed. Tomorrow should be the endish of this project.

I managed to mostly finish my work bench yesterday. Still need to cut 1 more sheet for the lower shelf. I have no energy today.

Anyways, here it is

Upside down, you can see where I installed the simpson ties. Also, these are 4" casters, the brake locks the wheel from spinning and from the caster from spinning.

And up! Need to remind myself to throw some more screws in from the 2x6s to the 4x4s...

And the top on! This is whatever the cheapest real wood sheet is at home depot. I think its pine... This makes for a 3x6ft surface.

I like that a lot. The one I built years ago was sturdy enough to block up my old Goldwing on for a long term wheel project. Makes a nice layout table for engine and transmission rebuilds too. I keep a roll of plastic underneath that I use for a table cloth for greasy tasks.

^^^That’s a good idea.




I’m actually in the middle of building my workbench right now also. Since it’ll be a multi-use deal I plan on doing my casters like this so it can be rolled outside and I won’t have to think about damaging the wheels if I wail the shit out of something on it.

At my house, the driveway is anything but flat. So it wont be going outside here. But to the front of the garage? maybe. But that is a pretty nice idea for the casters, I was trying to think if I wanted to do anything else to mount the wheels... like take some 1/4" steel plate to screw onto the bottom, and threads to bolt the casters to. But nah, Ill deal with this.
