Modified Plywood Workstation

I really like the versatility of the knockdown workstation I built from Issue No. 87. And after making just one slight modification, I use it more than ever.

To make the modification, I used the dado blade on my table saw to cut a wide groove on the top of each rail. Then I installed a T-track in each groove.

Next, I drilled holes in the mounting platform of each of the accessories I use

with the workstation. Each hole is positioned over the T-track on the rail. Then simply insert a flange bolt, washer, and a star knob in each of the holes.

Now when I need to change one of the accessories, all I need to do is slip the platform on the T-track and tighten the knobs as shown in the drawing below.

The Winner!

Congratulations to Gary Mastolier of Homer, Alaska. His tip on making a rip cut hold-down guide was selected as winner of the Porter-Cable router just like the one shown at the right. The hold-down guide allows stock to be cut quickly and safely without a lot of set-up time.

To find out how you could win a Porter-Cable router check out the information above. Your tip just might be a winner.
