Outfit and Organize
For years, I've pondered how to keep existing tools in place in drawers and still leave room for new tools. Finally, I devised a modular system that gives me a solution to the problem.
Because I don’t care for the idea of drilling into my expensive Biesemeyer-style tablesaw fence to attach jigs, I mount them to the fence with rare earth magnets.
There's the problem of where to store a pushstick and other tablesaw accessories. Solve this dilemma by building a pair of shelves below your tablesaw top.
When building a project, I like to keep my plans close at hand, which means dragging them from tool to tool for different operations.
I enjoyed the tablesaw tune-up article in the November 2003 WOOD® magazine (issue 152), and it inspired me to share a simple and accurate way I use to true my miter gauge to 90°.
I have a bunch of those big plastic multi-bin organizers that I use for storing small parts and hardware, but they hogged up a lot of benchtop space. My solution: drawer slides.
