In our shop (like many) one of the most frequently used tools is the miter saw. Coincidentally, it’s also the machine that seems to make the most dust. In order to keep the dust at a minimum, it was time to upgrade our miter saw station. ...
Before attaching the legs, I had a lot of work to do to prep the table top for finishing. Even though it was on the underside, I still wanted to eliminate all the dried glue, so I busted out the card scraper and got to work. Before: After...
