Dan Posted October 9, 2012 Report Share Posted October 9, 2012 long story short im bringing alot of tools home from work and seting up a small shop in the basement corner. i like to think of myself as a turner but because of location of the shop i cant turn because dont want all the dust sucked into the furnice. so im going to folcus on smaller work like carving, inlay, marquatry, scroll saw work ect.... dont have enough room for much in the way of power tools but im going to fit a grinder, drill press, scroll saw ect... but im going to invest in some decent hand tools and learn how to use them correctly. i origenly thought that i needed to make a long work bench but space is limited so i thought that i would make a small table/bench. something like a buterblock table and place it in the center of my work area. here is the post on another forum with pictures of my move http://www.woodtalko...hop-to-minimum/ as for why im telling you guys this well does anyone have a work table/ bench that they can give me some advice on the best way to make a carvers table? perhaps something that i should incorporate into my bench. accessories that would make my life easer. problems i might have perhaps? this is the bases of my table plan http://www.google.com/imgres?q=wood+carving+bench&hl=en&safe=off&sa=X&tbo=d&biw=1280&bih=855&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnsfd&tbnid=LKNlL6XHaGmFIM:&imgrefurl=http://sleepydogwoodworking.blogspot.com/2010/04/design-of-week-carvers-bench.html&docid=NCHR5BH14fAUwM&imgurl=http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SrOoaAH39pw/S8SsJ7MGm2I/AAAAAAAAAfM/DV1hjkwzg5w/s1600/carvers-bench.jpg&w=270&h=311&ei=l6FzUJSyM9DiyAGf4IEI&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=186&sig=104435989948568506455&page=1&tbnh=144&tbnw=120&start=0&ndsp=29&ved=1t:429,r:8,s:0,i:101&tx=30&ty=68 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
