« Part 1: Return to and Menards Cutting Policy Part 2 of Gearing Up series no next part

So far my schedule has really only allowed me to get started on a bookshelf and a coathook for my front hall.
The bookshelf hit a snag when I realized the plywood I cut for a few pieces was slightly warped. Took the wind out of my sail. So I plopped the boards on the floor and applied weight….I don’t think it straightened them much. But I think I can attempt assembly soon.

The coat rack was a quick project to get me back into the flow. I made a big one and a small one for my son to hang his coat on. I got to play with some finishing techniques and this taught me how much I have to learn about finishes. :-)
Hope to post pictures soon!

I have been using the EZ system in a limited capacity in my small basement work area. I must I say I really love the product. I hope to put up a decent review to encourage others to give it a thought. With my fantastic milwaukee circ saw the thing is quiet and safer than me using my table saw. Doesn’t even wake the wife at 2am!

There is one slight issue I have noticed…that is slop with the saw on the rail. The fit between the plastic base and the aluminum track isn’t as tight as I would like it. I can usually apply even pressure against the rail while cutting and the cut comes out smooth enough….but wondering if anybody who uses the EZ system has solved this problem?
