I thought I had built up enough tools to complete most tasks, as I said in my last post, I am starting, by erecting fencing, to make more room in the workshop to work on the Kiosko roof, I have been brought to a grinding halt by the lack of a 5/8” drill bit, I have a masonry one, but also need one for wood.
However some of the cutting got underway, I used my sliding compound mitre saw to cut the posts, but I haven’t got a mitre station, so what do I do, to be honest I haven’t even got the space for one, even with collapsing sides, in the workshop, my post are 4m long, so even with a mitre station I would be struggling.
I do most of my big work, on the parking area, which is flat concrete, and conveniently, outside the workshop, so the obvious solution was to improvise:
Two blocks of mahogany with a strip of ply on top, brought the blocks to the exact height of the mitre saw, problem solved, bring on the 6m posts!!! long or short I can cut away to my hearts content, and two wooden blocks take up far less storage space than a mitre station, and cheaper to.
It looks like tomorrow will have to be a trip to Homecenter!
