Kreg True-Flex Featherboard

Just purchased a Kerg-Flex Featherboard for my Craftsman 10" table saw. It fits perfectly in the slot but it slides with the board being cut. How does one stop it from sliding freely. Apparently I…Continue

Charles,

What a nice thing to say! Thank you very much! All I had to start with was a thought. I then took advantages to places where I saw fit.  Such as the "basement" area! It was such fun to put together. I know that yours will be better than mine!  Thanx again!

Hi Charles.  The overall dimensions for the cabinet are 44"w x 31.5"d x 84"h.  I cut the side pieces 30 x 79.5.  The wheels on the bottom added 3.75".  I used 4" wheels and I inset them on the bottom.  Basically, I wanted to make sure the cabinet would fit under my garage door rails.  I left myself an inch or so for any errors in measurements and for the slope of the garage floor.  I was trying to cover my bases and not have any problems after I built it.  I have a slab foundation and I wanted to put it up next to the wall.  I also took into consideration the concrete foundation which was about 3 inches wide.  That is why I inset the wheels.  Your garage may be different.  For the top shelves I made one side 15.5" wide and the other side 13.75" wide.  I used 3/4 plywood for the center divider, sides, and some of the lower shelves.  I was using scrap wood my dad had given me for part of the project.  I know I made it harder on myself having to fit pieces together to get the desired measurements in some cases, but I did save a little money in doing so.

Thanks for your interest in the cabinet.  I know that I really enjoyed building it and it was definitely a learning experience for me.

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
