4x4 cut offs - 14 replies

I have been collecting treated 4×4’s cut offsranging 2 to 2.5 ft long. I’ve been doing a lot of fencing for the horses. I have over 30 of these cut offs.

It came with a nice Freud blade also! Here is the kicker, I traded it to an elder gentleman who didn’t want it, but wanted some video games for his grand...

Possible Router table? - 8 replies

I’ve had this arcade cocktail in the garage for a while, had a crazy idea of restoring it for a pac-man, but I don’t think I’m going to do that anymore.
