I managed to land some commissions this week so when i was cutting some material the outfeed drop leaf table on my radial saw decided to give up the ghost. the osb sheeting on my drop leaf desintegrated where the piano hinge mounts. time for an upgrade! the new ones will be laminated plywood cores with cut down 2×3s framing the edges so that the hinges have solid wood to screw into and the frames will hold the weight instead of the plywood. this will all be topped with some white 1/8” water resistant material. on top of that will be some new fences to replace the old ones which were off by 3/16”

I should mention that I’m doing all this without a veneer press so I got creative

Ill update this blog once i get more of my saw refitted. you can see pictures of the old tables on my shop page
