    Sorry but has to be pressure treated to last.

    That said, even pressure treated lumber will eventually deteriorate. Where I live it gets to looking pretty bad in 5-10 years. Sealing and...

    Mike,

    @ Robert - good point about the panel flexing. Clamping between dogs and tapping the dogs down will usually bring the panel flat.

    The point I want stress is the panel isn't flat.

    You said the tails are on the sides, which like Mike said, is reversed from normal drawer construction.

    That said, I don't see the point in what you're doing.

    Pecan can be a very attractive wood. Be aware it one of the harder species, at least or maybe even harder than hickory.

    Mine is right rear aspect of extension table.

    Since I've added another tablesaw, I'm going under floor with it.

    Which is to say, that is probably the best location.

    That said, On a LA jack with an adjustable mouth the only issue will be the width and fitment to the frog adjuster.

    I will be redoing my assembly table soon. I've considered MFT vs T tracks and I've decided to go with T tracks along with holes that will accept Festool quick clamps.

    I love this router, but the DC needs to be re-engineered IMHO. For one, it is a process to remove and attach.

    Keeping a fan running at night will help.

    Other than that, the more infrequently you use your machines, the more issues you will have with rust.

    The reason they fail is the manufacturer is using the wrong screw. 5mm Euro screws don't work in MDF.

    My approach is saw a bit off the scribe line and use a guide block with a chisel to create a crisp, 90 wall. This works very well especially critical with deeper dadoes.
