I did this, twice! On one side for the mitre saw setup, the other side for
the planer setup. That was almost 20 years ago and I haven't regretted it
yet.Made the cabinets 8',2',8' for the mitre saw side, 6',2',6' for the
I remove the planer, store in the 2' section,using the 2' 'depressed' top
for a 'catchall' for 'tools in use'..
Heck, if it works for you, go for it. If you make individual benches like I
did, be sure to use adjustable feet to get everything level though !!
