After purchasing a Ridgid TS3660 (very happy with my choice) I read Kelly Mehler’s book as well as Kenneth Burton’s “Cutting-edge Table Saw Tips & Tricks”. I worked my way through both books making the simple jigs and test cuts as I went. Once I felt comfortable with the saw and knew I could do things safely I wanted to try making a simple project to “warm up”. In Mr. Burton’s book he gives a plan for a small wall hung cabinet. I decided to make one similar to it for my girlfriend. Her new apartment has a small bathroom with limited storage.
I think it turned out quite well. Home center “select” pine which she wanted stained dark (mahagony I believe) to match the vanity and trim in the bath. Several coats of a home-brew wiping poly and it looks pretty good. Don’t have pictures showing the finish though.
Had a great time making the raised panel door. I’ve since made a few more and each time I think I get a little bit better at it. But I’ve done the rails and styles on the router table, only coving the panel at the saw on the last one I made.
