« Part 4: Officially Up and Running Part 5 of Torque WorkCentre series no next part

About two weeks ago Hopdevil posted a question to the forum about shelving he had seen in the Martha Stewart Magazine. It is called birds beak shelving.
Well thank you Hopdevil, a gun went off in my head. This would be the perfect project for the Torque WorkCentre.
So off I went to my shop with video camera in hand and shot this remedial video showing how easy this project was to make. It was more difficult to get the camera and my mouth working at the same time so I think it shows how I really can’t do two things at the same time. Hopefully this will get better as I go along.

Here is the final project. It just needs some outside sanding and a couple coats of something to be all complete.
I cut the shelves to size on the table saw with the blade set to 14 degrees. EASY !!
The shelves slide in and out to adjust the height.
The overall size is 18” H x 11 1/2” W x 12” D.

I plan to use it for sandpaper storage : )

Thanks for looking,

Lisa

Awesome Lisa. That is a creative way to use your new Torque. Aren’t you loving it?
Unfortunately, I’m the only other one in the US that knows how much fun your having.

Thanks for sharing

Cool tool for sure.

I still think if you turn that over it will still work and the left over ridges wont collect the dust.

Wow awesome!
Nicely done Lisa!
That is quite a machine you have there. I had not seen one before. It is a great modern solution to the problem.
Can I borrow it for a few years? ;-)

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks all for the positive feedback.
I purposely did not photo shoot myself, because i don’t like my picture taken. Maybe I will overcome this.
The video is not about me anyway, it’s about the Torque. That’s my excuse….LOL
Thanks again for your support : )

Nice job, Lisa. I was waiting to see you in the video with a big smile on your face as the TWC made another sweet project. That is a nice way to set it up with the dovetail cutter.
Thanks for showin the video. I was wanting to see one in action ather than just sawing! That is a nice piece of equipment and it looks to very versatile for making tricky cuts.

Thanks for sharing…..Jim
