Workbench redesign – location, location, location

Before I can really get into designing the workbench, I’ve come to the conclusion that I have to establish the location first.  The reason this makes a big difference is that the workbench will either be integrated into my main outfeed bench (as it currently is) or it will be an independent bench entirely.  Ya, ya, I just made life a whole lot more complicated.  In fact, this is dangerously close to becoming a discussion about workshop layout in general.  I’ll try to rein myself in and not drift too far off topic.

For this post, I want to focus on where the workbench will be and that in turn will help me to determine if I leverage one of the existing lab benches as a base, or build a workbench on its own.  Trust me, I’ll show you some drawings and it will all make sense.
