Now that the Shop is filling up with stuff I've been thinking on several shop related projects which are NOT construction related.
First up, I'm shy a router table, so I'm going to be adding one to the right extension of my table saw. I just lucked into a nice piece of laminated countertop which I am going to cut down to fit.
Another project is to fit the cabinet I put in with shelving. I added one quick shelf today, but I want to plan the rest out a bit, and make them nicer than just a piece of 1/2" plywood. Tonight's shelf did allow me to clear off my workbench of several containers and tools though, so it stays until I gear up for the shelves project.
Following those, I want to raise the 4 drawer cabinet a bit, as well as make a drill press stand out around it. Yesterday's counter top rescue netted three pieces, one large one which is now in Ralph's shop, and two smaller ones which I decided would be nice to have on hand here. One of which is a corner unit, I'm thinking that it would be pretty cool if I kept it as such and tucked the cabinet under it for drill paraphernalia and so forth.
The counter is approximately 24" square complete with back splash sections, which might just work out nicely, since I'm planning on putting it in the corner anyway, and just pulling it out when I need to drill something large.
and perhaps the largest project is that I'm going to modify one of my benches to be similar to the one which the fine woodworking shop manager designed:

he uses pipe clamps instead of a tail vice. I''ve got my face vise, so I'm going to have that on one end, and then the pipe clamps either behind it, or beside it, depending on how things work out.
and for the sketchup clan :http://www.sawdustroad.com/Newfangled.skp and a second version with cutlist for 6' version http://www.sawdustroad.com/NewFangled-v2.skp
this one might just go to the top of the list.
