Reuse of Resources
So, I recently completed my scope of work on an office remodeling project. The job super was going to toss these cabinets and door into the dumpster...not on my watch! So we loaded them in my truck and here they are. I love being able to reuse, refurbish, or upcycle anything I can. (I'm not a hoarder, I promise)

That is very nice.
Dust Extractor vs. Shop Vac – Which Sucks Less?
I'm stuck between dropping cash on a dedicated dust extractor or making do with my trusty shop vac. I get the gist that the extractor is the holy grail of dust control, but is it worth the investment over my good ol' shop vac? Plus, I'm not just woodworking – gotta tackle some garage projects too. Hit me with your experiences and advice. [This is a 📣Question From The Community 📣]

Use them both. I do and my shop is clean and a pleasure to work in.
What's Everyone Working On?
I'd love to see more of you posting your projects. We want to see what you're working on; share in your triumphs and tragedies. Preferably more of the former and less of the later.

@Arthur Burke the rails and bearings came from VEVOR via Amazon. 1/2" acrylic and dust curtain from Amazon again. The sled's adjustment feature was fabricated from 6" slotted deflection track left over from a job (I'm an interior contractor). The Amazon parts I ordered came to around $150. It can flatten 26"x63" in its present configuration. If I widened the table I could gain another 6" in width. My first attempt at the rail/sled assembly was fun to make and cost about the same, but had too much play in the components.

@Arthur Burke VEVOR offers rails in different lengths. My long ones came bent (probably from shipping), but they were easily adjusted on the table. Of course the longer rails cost more. That island looks fantastic!
What's the most rewarding part of woodworking?

Was doing some simple cuts on the bandsaw tonight. It took me back to 1981 when dad bought his Shopsmith. I filled his shop with so much dust back then...very satisfying to run it again.
