Thanks, guys. Aspiring LumberJock here. Recently made my first few purchases of tools & started building VERY rough stuff outta “cull” wood gotten at HomeDepot.

Lets see. A little about me. 37, recently separated. I’ve been a cabdriver for a decade & a half so figured it’d be good for my health to get off my ass for a few hours a day/week.

First few purchases include:
  • Craftsman 8.5” RAS
  • Skilsaw 7” circular saw
  • Craftsman ScrollSaw
  • Have a 8” Craftsman (benchtop size) table saw on layaway.

All tools purchased either off craigslist or from various pawnshops, appear to be in great condition. Have already re-listed the RAS as both the little experience I’ve gotten and what I’ve read indicate a tablesaw & mitersaw together will accomplish the same activities more safely and use up less space.

First few projects include:
  • Folding workbench mounted to wall, just hinges up out of the way & legs also fold against wall. It’s made from a 7’x3’ solidcore door (Praise Habitat ReStore!)
  • RAS bench (soon to be mitersaw bench) made from 2 recycled kitchen cabinets & a couple big pieces of particle board
  • BIG lumber storage in back yard, already has about 500# of wood on it from treasure hunts to the local Home Depot.
  • And, not really a project, but ceiling hung shelves a’la quickshelf.com

Cheers, and hope to see more of you guys. BTW, you’re right. I spent nearly two hours just staring at projects thinkin “I wanna build that”.

Oh, forgot to say this in the first comment, but…PLEASE give any advice that pops into your head, I’ll try to be a sponge. Also gonna be spending a LOT of time looking at projects & readin the forum.

Upcoming and/or planned projects include:
  • Ceiling hung monitor arm for my computer monitor. It’ll be used at more than one location, so the plan is to use something I found at HomeDepot similar to T-Track on steroids…apparently used for hanging electrical conduit & fixtures from the ceiling…right side up it’s similar to T-track, upside down it’ll make a dandy sliding mount for the monitor.
  • Convertible dust collector/air filter. Already have the blower, see my comment in this guy’s project for details.
  • Modifications to the current RAS table when I replace it with a mitre saw.
  • Taking pics of what I’ve already done for my own “projects” page. It’ll be embarrassing since my stuff is still VERY rough.

Looking forward to any thoughts/ideas/suggestions that come my way.
