#rememberwen your family spoiled you with a bunch of @wenproducts tools for Christmas? Just now getting around to building this workstation. Limited space means getting creative. Each tool is on a sliding platform so I can have room to use it but still store it in a small space. The scroll saw has a rotating platform since it is deeper front to back than I wanted the workstation to be. Also, my @worksharptools sharpener shares the same space as my bench grinder. I originally wanted to do a double flip-top workstation, but I wanted storage, so here we are. Some finish sanding, and a door in the middle still to come. Oh, and some shop towels since my wife figured out where her missing paper towels are.
Over the years doing woodworking I've been able to pick up some quality tools. This No. 62 low angle jack plane from @lienielsentoolworks is one example. A good tool does what you want it to and just feels right in the hand. You can tell it was money well spent just by picking it up. After a block plane this is a good one to add to your arsenal! 👍
Today's #tooltuesday post goes to my @boschtoolsna GTS1031 table saw. I just love the portability and power of this machine. I dont have a dedicated shopspace so that is huge to me. I also love how all the tools store right on the saw itself. The design of this was clearly thought through and through. The only complaint I have is that the riving knife was bent and didn't line up with the blade. I was able to straighten it out enought to use it, but really would have expected it to be true. Even with that I'm sure this won't be my last Bosch tool! Now I have to decide which one. Any suggestions?

With the wood shop undergoing an electrical renovation, I couldn’t sit out any longer and started on a rack for my truck. My idea is to make a button snap canvas cover and mount an ARB awning for shade at the beach or in the field hunting. Stay tuned.
Went and picked up the steel connector plates @portland_ironworks fabricated for me and got them cleaned/painted up last night. I think today will be the day the coffee table legs are finally assembled! (Don’t ask me about the actual table top though 🤷♂️)

Need to come up with a better/cleaner way to store some of the larger equipment. First world problems with a wood shop and garage gym in the same space. Man glitter everywhere!
And just like that I am ready to drill 160 pocket holes!!! Boy oh boy do I love this workbench and my @kregjig Foreman!!! 🧡💙🧡💙🧡💙🧡💙🧡💙🧡
Made awesome progress on the ladder shelves today.... but still waiting on pipe flanges to finish up drink shelf. Even though both of these projects are on the smaller or not so complicated side... I am still not a fan of having more than one project going on in my shop at a time. I feel like I am constantly moving stuff out of the way. How about you.... multiple project fan? Or one at a time? 🍊 #buildingawesome#fliptop

• this is AWESOME
• this is tricky
• this is shit
• I am shit
• this might be okay
• this is AWESOME!
Ever had a project that you went thru all those emotions with? Or is it just me? I guess if it starts at AWESOME and ends at AWESOME then it is AWESOME! 😆😊🍊 #murphybed#buildingawesome
