    Wow this seems to be the best of all worlds if you have the space. I love how its designed around the unified height model. Heck they even got the router table in there.

    That’s really nice, I’ve seen the older workbench before but if building new this would be the way to go for sure.

    I am almost persuaded that this is the way to go.

    that is a great setup, I remember the original bench video. it would give you a lot of space and options in a small area.

    Nice, looks like some steady improvements have been made. Wasn’t there someone here building one of the other benches that he has? I vaguely remember a picture of lumber and snow.

    Guilty as charged. Now I have even more snow and a few nicely shaped pieces waiting to be put together.

    That’s a cool setup. I like that it integrates the table saw and mitre saw all in one. There would be some sites though where there wouldn’t be enough space to set something like that up, especially indoors.

    Up that might not be an ideal situation on uneven terrain, also it looks heavy! But for what all it gives you once setup it could be valuable on a full build.

    That is a cool set-up. He is a pretty innovative guy.

    Yea I like that setup! I bought the V1 plans and was pissed off when the V2 plans came out a month later. Now I see his long range plan. Not only to have more and more new clients but to have the buyer of the V1 plans and V2 plans to keep upgrading. I have started the V1 plans. By that I mean I have the 4- 4′ wide pieces of ply for the horses.

    I don’t think he is intentionally scheming to force people to upgrade (it would be nice if he offered an “upgrade” discount) – but I imagine he truly is simply improving his product and innovating it accordingly. Besides, since the foundation is still mostly the same, you could probably just modify it yourself with a bit of creativity to mostly match what he shows.

    Thats a good start. Farther than I have gotten on the MF-TC I want to build. But I did pick up some plywood.

    Personally I think that the V1 is the best one of the bunch. His V3 design looks slick, but in practicality I can see bumping into the Miter saw when ripping and having to move tools in and out all the time. I know from using MFTs that they can get crowded quickly with project parts and tools. I think his version one is clean and practical and that is what I would buy if I were going to build something. Just my .02.

    I think that is a fair critique… In trying to get it to be an all-in-one station you are inevitably going to run into issues. But if you have the space in your shop or outside to set up the V3, it sure seems like a pretty slick setup. THOUGH I must admit that the three legged horse is a great contender for an all around setup – especially since I believe Brian is continuing to develop additional improvements/attachments, like miter and table saw stations along with other things…

    Yeah…I think it is funny in his videos that all of them are set up — he has an amazingly big shop.
