Wine Cabinet

| 9/10/2011 | |
Tom Muellner sent in this beautiful wine cabinet. (This is my first attempt to update this blog from my Androit Tablet so let's see what happens! My apologies to Tom if this doesnt come out very well.)

My home shop consists of 4 Shopsmiths: two 10er's and two Mk5's. The age range is 1952 to 1986. One Mk5 is a "shortie' with a 510 table setup.

Why four? I suppose it's because I don't have room for more. What can I say? I'm a "Smith" junkie. Actually, that's usually how I bought them. Other than my original 10er that my dad bought new, all have been acquired in various stages of disrepair. All have been rebuilt by me.

In the process, I've gotten just about all the available accessories. I leave the 510 shortie set as a table saw with the jointer on the end, the 500 powers my bandsaw & is used mostly in horizontal boring or drill press mode, one 10er is mostly lathe or disk sander, and the other 10er is set up as a dado saw & has an extra table with a router mounted under it.

I do some converting or swapping modes from time to time, depending on my needs, but the default setup seems to serve me well.

This is a wine cabinet I built for my son using an old wood wine case as the focal point for bottles. Dados, miters, rabbets, complex operations...all done on the 10er & Mk5. Everything fits. How about that???
