Pardon the new thread, but learning how to insert an image and ended up a new thread.

Bert, the 24"x48" AB is the cross cut, squaring, etc. table. The rail will go from front A to back D and be on 24" SME's so I can move it until I learn my preferred location. A raised edge (fence, squaring fence or called what?) will run along the front edge with a 90o angle to the rail.

I want to try the right side as a place to set up for routing. Hope this describes my thoughts adequately for you all's comments and suggestions.

Apologies- I've been trying to make friends with shingles - the kind we young folks have!

The reason I asked the question about cross cutting was that I became frustrated with a recent all purpose bench when I tried to use it for cross cutting. It got tired of walking back and forth to raise the rails. If you like to pull the board to you when you cross cut there is no problem. I prefer to press the board against the fence as I push the saw - that gets all of the forces going in the same direction. On your drawing, let's say I am standing at "a". I installed a easily removable fence between "b & c" that way I can make cross cuts without running back and forth between "A & D" It is only a couple of steps but when you are doing several cuts.

Recently, I had been working on single purpose setups. Now I am getting ready to retire so I am looking more at the multiple use setups - one table that does it all.

A combo of essentially being out of work for medical reasons for about two years and the recent slide of the economy is cramping my plans. I may end up selling the shop I have now and building a much smaller one in my backyard.
