just wondering how Teague may have assembled his L-shaped bench along the
He says it's just 2 sheets of ply for the top afixed to 3/4" plywood panels
to support it. Does that give enough support? What about leveling for
unlevel concrete floors? How does that 3/4" panel start vertical and not
tip (caulk it to the floor)?
I like the idea of roll around carts to be stored under the bench. I'd also
like my bench flat and level. I'm thinking a jointed flat 2x4 screwed to
the back wall to establish level and then horizontal supports coming out 20"
with legs dropping down to the floor sitting on lag bolts for leveling.
There woud be no front support so there is more clearance under the bench.
PS.. those roll around carts look like a good idea, but I have to doubt how
effective they are for miter box support, outfeed tables, etc. They are
assuming dead flat floors... not realistic IMO.
Maybe he scribed the panel to the floor, just for magazine photo
Shims? Adjustable feet? Whatever is easy for you will work fine,
I think you solved your own problem.
Miter saw supports and outfeed supports work fine if they're a tick
short. Miter saw supports also work great if they're a tick high, but
high on outfeed tables tends to catch. If you're cutting really thick
stock with zero flex, simply shim it. The takeaway is that either
will work just fine if 1/8" low. I often use roller stands on site as
miter saw supports, set up by eye.
My concrete floor is far from flat, so I tuck builder's shims into the
mobile bases. When I "park" a tool, they're readily available, on
board the mobile base.
I was just curious what others have done.
I think I've settled on my design.
jointed 2x4 along the back wall.. 2x4 metal bracket to support the
horizontal support.. M/T to the leg.. lag bolt leveler.
