We’ve been painfully aware that our workshop needed a better flow for about a month now. Navigating large pieces of wood around machines has been getting a bit tiresome. Our previous shop setup sported a compound miter saw in the middle of the room on a table, with sawhorses at each end to hold pieces of wood while cutting. Well, that saw position just wasn’t cutting it for us. (Do I hear a pun?)
To the drawing board! Sam whipped up a new miter saw station!
Using some old 2×4’s, he made the first table frame.
Then before I knew it, he had cut some sheets of melamine, and made a second table!
And when I took a third look, the station was complete!
So this really took Sam about a day to make. I must have been real busy cooking and cleaning. Ok, probably painting.
And with a new blade on the miter saw… the thing cuts like butter. I had to cut a piece of Oak, which prompted me to ask Sam if my wood was really Pine.
“Nope, that’s Oak all right. I changed the blade!”
Note: Change your saw blades when cutting hard wood gets hard. (And a double entendre too?! I’m on a roll!)
