Help - Sliding doors - 1 reply
I’ve got to build some cabinets for a laundry room and my wife wants a couple of them to have sliding doors as they’ll be more functional for her than doors that swing open.

Is it wrong that I should be secretly happy that my 15 year old Skil benchtop table saw finally bought the farm? With its plastic casing, whiny motor, floppy fence, non-standard miter slots, non-standard blade inserts, too-short arbor, bouncy aluminum table/extensions…..I’ll stop.

As I’m sure most of us do (or maybe it’s just my way of procrastinating) I enjoy building things for the workshop, be it a jig, storage or just organizing things in a better, more efficient, way. I always marvel at how well some people are able to take advantage of pegboard for storing tools and jigs to keep them handy and well or...
