I use my miter saw quite a bit. But its on a rolling table so when I cut 8 foot long boards its unstable. Im looking to make a table that has a bed so I can drop down long boards on it.

I must admit it isn’t one of my strong points. For as long as I remember, I really don’t like doing numbers. I suppose that I get by well enough. After all, I have made it through over half a century and done OK. But being a small business owner and watching the business grow means that it is no longer optional to stay on top of the figures and keep track of things along the way. After all, how can I make intelligent business decisions if I don’t have full and accurate...
