    Yes, Iíve used those. Great design. I like how they support the drawers from underneath. I thought you might have used routed tracks given you used a hardwood.

    I have had a ShopSmith for years among other power equipment

    Wow. I thought I might be the only person that had one of those in their basement/workshop.

    Mine is one of the original older models that was used to make all kinds of stuff at the place I used to work, but I managed to rescue it from being thrown out onto the scrapheap about 30+ years ago. We didn't even recycle much in those days.

    It sure is a compact, versatile power tool and I'm surprised that there is nothing like them being made these days that I'm aware of.

    A similar model but not mine:

    Well, another option, of course - I have a half dozen routers and could easily make that drawer side, but I've not done so yet - maybe a future project? Dave

    Patrick, that's a beauty. It looks like the 10R model. Would love to have one too. I bought mine in early 80's. Here are some pics of shopsmith, radial arm and table saw with built in router table. Please pardon the mess, you can see why I need another garage from the pics.

    I've spent a lot of years fixing my houses up so instead of hiring out I bought the tool and learned how to use it, did the jobs and had the tool pay for itself. Been blessed with that ability. Now I'm hoping to start using these for fun stuff and beautiful work like RadDave is doing. wish I had better access to hardwoods like I'm sure RadDave. does in NC.

    Hi Kenny - when starting a project (invariably use hardwoods these days), I usually order my wood from Wall Lumber in Mayodan, NC (off 220 near the VA border - about 90 mins from me) - I typically get their UPS bundles delivered to my doorstep (my projects tend to be small so a great choice for me) - pic below showing their offerings; also ship nice Baltic birch plywood (5' x 5' sheets).

    If not done already, go to the Woodfinder Website, enter your zip code, and see what hits you may get?

    I'll clean up my basement workshop and take some photos to post - not professional but works for me. Dave

    Thanks RadDave will check that website out. I have a couple around here but it seems every time I get 4 quarter lumber the plane down the rough cut some which save me time but they always snipe the ends. so watching these guys one day I can see they have a habit of lifting the boards which I believe is what is causing the snipes. I have a planner but I like them to plane off a little, it saves my planner blades a little. I still usually end up with a good 15/16ths.

    I'm far from professional just love working with wood. Can't wait to get into bowl turning etc. Still waiting for power company to bring in power to building and hopefully I will have all electric done inside next week or so.

    Thanks Kenny, and yes I believe that is the model, unfortunately, I was not able to "abscond" with all its attachments it originally came with such as its: bandsaw, small air compressor, small verticle jigsaw and I believe a small stationary belt sander. I'm not sure I'm missing anything else. Anyway, all the parts I have all work, and it's usually just used as a drillpress and table saw and mabe with a grindstone or steel brush. All very quick to change.

    For those interested, I did a little cleaning in my basement workshop and took some pics - quality not great but labels show my various tools (missed a pic of my Veritas router table) - now need to order some wood from Wall Lumber and come up w/ a new project - has been a few months! Dave

    Well, just a couple more pics that did not seem to 'fit' into my last post - I'm a router aficionado, so own probably about 8 or so, both corded and several (Rigid & Bosch) that run on Li Ion batteries which are just great for minor edge work, like round overs - Dave

    I believe the amazing expression is WOZERS!!!

    The envy of many, including myself, even though my current physical condition would prevent me from using most of them. Very nice setup.

    Hi Patrick - that basement workshop space has been expanding since the 1980s - now just need to get back into making some projects - Dave

    And it seems like your routers like expanding as well and must be breeding and producing all the new ones. You may want to keep an eye on some of the other tools in case they have something similar in mind.
