Great looking table Richard! Can you explain how you did the tapers on the leg feet?  I like the design!

I've completed plans for a mobile carpentry system.  Here is a link to the system demonstration:



The plans are over 30 pages of prints and 30 pages of photos explaining the measurements, assembly method, and required hardware.

The link for the plans are here:

Not sure how small you’re looking to go.  I keep this in the garage for random trash.

TS55 track saw
MFT3
OF1400 router
DF500 domino
CT 48 E vacuum
clamping system
LR32 hole drilling set
1 55" guide rail
1 55" guide rail with 32mm holes
quick clamps
parallel guides for guide rails
edge guide for the router

Also included in the package are custom cases that make everything much more mobile.  All of this can be seen in this video:



Also, a 4'x4' MFT template is included.  This can be seen in this video:



Also, a modified 6" Rigid sander that has been converted to work with the festool vacuum.  This can be seen in this video:

I’m in a two car garage. What does everyone do for trash bins in a small space? I’m tired of having a trash bag on the floor.

Edge banding like many aspects of joinery and cabinet making, varies greatly.
There are certain types of banding that will hold fine with tape, depending on the material it’s being bonded too, and the glue used.

I sometimes use scrap lengths of wood, and place them between the edge banding and the clamps. This helps spread the load pressure.
Also seen a few examples where the banding was held with tape, and the banding dried rippled, as in between the tape, the banding didn’t hold, or wrong glue maybe?

Years ago, we did edge banding with Evo Stik, if any wasn’t straight when the glue had set, the fumes of the glue were blamed  [doh]
That stuff was lethal! How some people siniff it to get high is beyond me?

@neilc a belated thank you. Finally got this done and out of the shop today. 2 nieces down, 4 nephews to go...











The legs will probably get a little visual distressing workover, used a slate black patina and then sprayed flat lacquer over it. Neice #2 can steel wool off some strategic areas as she sees fit to make them a little more interesting, she's the artistic type.

On to the next half-finished project on the pile.

Maybe they’ve changed the design? I find it rock solid on 12 and 18mm sheets

I tested them in the store when they first came out and I wasn't impressed. It allowed shifting the rail too easily
