The 2 tables are supposed to be at the same elevation. The flip top is about 1/16th higher. I’ll shim the CMS to make it work. It’s tough to set these cabinets by myself. They’re heavy.

Actually, part of the grand scheme is to make all the table surfaces the same elevation so every one serves as an infeed and outfeed table for each other. In fact, even the flip down planer wings – the ones attached to the planer – are set to that same elevation. :-)

Another job I have to do this morning is temporarily raise the table saw because now the flip top box is in the way. I’ll put some 2×4s underneath the legs or something. Eventually I’m going to make a new stand for the table saw.
