Shop Built Equipment Forum

The programmers at WOODWEB recently put the finishing touches
on the new Shop Built Equipment Forum - a venue that allows
professional woodworkers to share the jigs and rigs, shop built
equipment, storage tricks, and time saving tricks they've developed
over the years.

We encourage all interested parties to contribute to this new
resource, and help build what promises to be the best collection of
wood industry related shop built equipment examples.
