A quick demonstration of my favorite shop made improvements and innovations for space saving and low cost. A revolving tool station, a mutant shop vac, the cross cut sled, a mechanical workbench and more.
The “lift” mechanism for the workbench and the double drawer slide idea come from American wood worker mag feb 2014. Everything else (as best as I can remember) is original.

The duct tape part was meant to be a joke. As I was taking the fan out of the box I decided it would be more entertaining to use the cardboard box the fan came in instead of making a wooden box with latches. This is why I painted the box and all that. However, in the context of the video most people think that was the design from the beginning. Taping the box each time would certainly be wasteful, and there are many options that are better such as latches or Velcro.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND…I receive hundreds of messages on all platforms (email, Facebook, Instagram, comments, etc) asking for advice, and help with projects. At this volume, I simply can’t do one on one advice. I have tried to help enough times to know I should never assume I have all the relevant information in the message, and even basic questions can produce a lot of followup questions. I do read all the questions, and if I get the same ones over and over I make videos about it to help lots of people. Thanks for your understanding on this.
