A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...

A 1×8 x 8’ was needed to build a topA 1×4 x 8’ was needed for aprons and other small parts ( Drawer, maybe?)anda 2×4 x 8’ was needed for leg blanks Grand total? $20.16…....Cheap table?

I flipped these back and forth to add strength so the pocket holes were not all on one side. Check out the video and subscribe.

View on YouTube My new project is to build a traditional hand tool cabinet out of reclaimed materials. In this video, I cut the dovetails and assemble the frame of the dresser.
well a little progress has been made unfortunately i’m hesitant to do too much because i may lose the place with the recent employment termination and lack of resources in new state. <div></div> But anyway i was going to move my 4×8 work bench in as a alt. out-feed table, but instead i added on a 18”x40” removable leaf for now.
