Another picture from today, I found FOG researching on crosscut jigs for the Festool rail saw.

This thing is super basic, but I did have the KREG measured stop fence in my supplies, so I used that for free basically, cool.  I built the crosscut jig today, I don't have the space for a panel saw unfortunately and I didn't want to spend lots of money either.  I just fabricated it this afternoon with some melamine and oak.

Here another Panoramic image, I built all of the cabinetry and shelves and everything that's above the studs.  I am in the process of doing an addition on my house and I will be moving the laundry room inside. and gaining more room.  I plan on putting a sink where the washer sits now for clean up of paint and hands and stuff.

Here's another angle from today.  Today I built the second outfeed table from my old garage door that was replaced during the addition I am building on my house.  I ended up moving the door into my garage, so I had a free solid core door slab and I built a new outfeed table with it.  The table on the right is now my dedicated assembly table.  before my assembly table doubled as an outfeed table and that was very frustrating.  Soon I will be building a new kitchen so I needed a better setup in my shop.

First, WELCOME!

Looks nice so far. But I have to ask - what's with the fence/gates in the last picture? Dogs?

I could get something done in there. What are your plans for dust collection?

Hey NYC,

For dust collection I have the CT mini that I use with my festool tools.  I also use the mini for my miter saw when I don't feel like sweeping.  I don't use any dust collection on my table saw.  My main dust collection is a broom and a dust pan.  I just open the doors and sweep up when I'm done.

 Here's the tool that got me started with Festool, picked it up back in 2004 probably along with my CT Mini.  It has high miles.

Here's another older shot of my garage with some of my festool products stacked up below the chop saw.  Looks like I'm building drawer bodies with the stack in the back.

Here's a picture of my flush built-ins here in my master bedroom.  This used to be a glass slider closet that I converted into a cabinet.

Welcome to the FOG!  [smile]

Great way to start posting!  I see you have an ATF55 there. That was my first Festool.

Thanks Seth.

I always wanted a way to easily cut square across a sheet of wood.  Before I would always have to use a square and do a lot of fiddling around with the rail.  So I built this quick and dirty jig yesterday to crosscut with.  I looked into the MFT table, but it is too small for 4*8 sheets according to Festools website.  I'm building a full kitchen for myself in the coming months.  I'll post pictures here as it progresses.

Yeah this plastic gate is nice fits perfectly across my garage door.  My dumb dog also has already tore up my brand new patio door. Ughh.  And I'm about to put a new stained front door in.  I'm going to have to build a gate to keep her away from the new front door.

I noticed your miter saw. I have the same one for on the job use. I think it's the best saw under $600

Until the casting breaks that holds the stop that controls the cutting depth and you then cut almost all the way thru the base.  Then it becomes an entry into the Kapex world.  At least in my case.  [big grin]

I think it's a great saw, especially for the price.  I got mine used off craigslist for $225.  The table is a made by TracRac same people who make those aluminum truck racks.  I love the table, but looks like it's discontinued.

I *REALLY* like those built ins! Makes for a very elegant look that is still clean and convenient. Now you've got my brain working...

Thanks Wow, Here's how I built them:

First Picture is the before shot that I took the day we moved into the house.  We closed off the door from the master to the bathroom since we were adding a master bath.  There are also inwall built-ins on the old doorway facing bathroom #1.

The Master bedroom was tiny and we only had one bathroom, so I built out and doubled the size of the master bedroom and added a master bathroom:

Here's the room almost done, and I'm putting together the face frame for the cabinet:
102632-2

Here's showing the clothes drawers open:
102634-3

Here's the cabinet almost done without doors and paint:
102636-4

I love being able to have all of my clothes on 24" full extention ball bearing drawers.  And the best part is that it takes up no space in the room.  Above the drawers is where I hang my clothes.  My wife's hanging clothes are in the walk in closet that we built.


Here's one more, the built in sits just inside the existing wall:

The MBR cabinet is beautiful.  Here is a photo of a cabinet I built for my wife's sewing room.  Made of poplar stained, 6 coats of hand applied poly and finished off with two coats of clear Briwax.  Doors have blum soft close hinges and drawers are soft close kv guides.  Cabinets (3) are 8'x32"x24"deep.  My first attempt at raised panels and dovetails.  I have a Sommerfeld router table and bits.  Bill

That's really nice, Bill.  It looks more like red oak.  I think I'd have moved that pesky receptacle, though.

That closet remodel came out very nicely.
