My biggest problem is I try to do to many things at one time cause I can never decide what to work on 1st. Now that the old Craftsman benchtop jointer I was working on is finished I decided to start on my new mitersaw station. I’m on a pretty tight budget right now so the mitersaw station is being built out of 3/4 in plywood from an old set of cabinets that I tore apart. It was a nice suprise to find that the entire cabinet was 3/4 in thich ply. As you can see in the pictures it is still pretty rough, but coming along nicely. I still have to add 1/4 in. plywood to the back and add shelving inside. When finished with construction I’m gonna paint the cabinet and apply hardwood edging to the tabletop.
The jointer is a Bridgewood BW6R that my brother picked up for me from cl in his area. I’ve been looking for a floor model 6 in. jointer for sometime that I could afford, and he finally found one for me (thanks Ryan). I’m not too worried about Bridgewood being out of business, seems like they were very good machines, and the distributer has reopened under CH Wilke inc. and I hear they have many of the parts for the Bridgewood machines. I’m still gonna keep the Craftsman I cleaned up and built the stand for. I’ll just use it for the smaller stuff.
Thanks for looking.
