table saw placement *PIC*

When I downsized to my new shop I put a lot of thought into where the table saw should go and how to orient it. It worked. I had to cut up some 1/4" plywood for drawer sides and bottoms for a cabinet my sister wanted. So I came up with this idea. I had 8 2x4's that I use for my saw horses. I sat a shorter piece on my outfeed dolly and then put the 8 foot board on the fence track of my table saw. I drilled some holes for small nails to keep it all from slipping. Most of my smaller machines and tool cabinets are on wheels so I rolled them out of the way. On the other end I rolled my miter saw out of the way and the plywood hit the blade of my bandsaw by about 1/2" so I slid it sideways just enough to clear the blade. That was just enough to let me rip it up to size. If I cut off more than a foot there is just enough room between my lathe and the saw to cross cut the plywood so it's pretty easy to cut 1x4 foot pieces or 2x4 foot pieces.
