« Part 5: Not working again. Time to get started Part 6 of Window shelving series Part 7: Almost Done »

Well, 1st off I need to show off my new toy. A Skil 9 inch band saw. Got it for 50 bucks.

And in no particular order you will see that I am almost done with the 1st unit. I still have 2 more shelves to cut and then another 3/4” thick shelf to put in the center. Which will be pocket holed.

The shelves themselves are made of 1/2 inch pine. Next I will be making more shelves and gluing this one together. Then on to the next one.

Thanks for lookin

It sure is that is why I need to build a tool storage rack and a mobile base. I need to lose 1 work bench.

Everything is looking good, Rick.

That band saw is really going to open up a whole new range of projects- for the Mrs. to have you make!

Rick,

Have you considered making a flip-top stand for your band saw and scroll saw? If it is somethiing that you’re willing to give a shot, I’ve got some pretty detailed plans that I could send you. It’s already a somewhat simple project, but I don’t think that the plans would hurt. the plans are out of The Complete Small Shop. That book has been worth every penny so far.

-- Cheers and God Bless

P.S.
It’s starting to look like the LJs BBQ is going to be May 8th. I’d like to shoot for a date that’s a little sooner, but you know how Michigan weather works and I’d like to do everything I can to avoid gambling with mother nature.

-- Cheers and God Bless

Sounds great. I have that same book. I am going to buy a cabinet from Habitat restore and modify it slightly. I am planning on putting a base on the band saw and other bench tools so I can swap them out as needed.

Good job.
