I have been woodworking on and off for 30 years. I built cabinets and furniture as a profession for two years until I got lonely working by myself in my shop all day every day. I now lead the activities of two flight simulators for Gulfstream Aerospace. The children are grown and I build whatever the wife wants and an occasional project for others. I like building out of recycled lumber if I get the chance.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless

The saw sits on 4 6’” bolts threaded into a wood platform. This platrform can be moved around for perfect fence alignment and then screwed into the lower box you see. There are 4 nuts and fender washers on those bolts that can adjust the height of the saw, you can easily flush it up with the top. There are also 4 small bolts that can adjust out from the sides of the hole the saw is sitting in. After you get the top flush and aligned with your fence you spin those bolts against the steel saw table and that adds more stability. I am going to hinge a router table from one side that can swing up and put legs under it. I am also adding a hinged out feed table that will give another three feet or so for those 4×8 sheets of plywood. I need to make something to keep it from rolling while cutting big sheets of plywood. I have a compound sliding mitre saw and don’t plan on using the mitre slots. You could also put a vacumn hose in the bottom to collect sawdust.
