When I posted the Table Saw renovation a request to see the first project from it was made.
So here it is:
Its more scrap timber from the Smiths Potato crate repair work and from the looks, its Jarrah and possibly Yellow Stringy Bark
The timber was thicknessed to match the thinest piece then sawn to size.
The edging was done with some of the Jarrah offcuts.
There is three No 20 biscuits joining the table section totaling 18 in all.
The edging is simply butt and miter joint glued in place.
Finished off by routed the edges with around over bit, then a coat of sanding sealer.
I used my Sand Cat Belt Sander mainly to remove glue squeese out and then a 1/2 sheet sander started sanding with 60 grit and finished with 800 grit along with the table saw of course.
Incidently the Skill Sand Cat is possibly one of the oledest electric power tools I have, and does a great job.
Here is a picture of it hard at work on our bird feeder platform!
Plus not forgetting I used a clamp or two.
The table frame and saw came from A school throwout the timber recovered from crate repairs.
Why no finish coat?... I am thinking of having it engraved with the Grandkids names and birthdates, standby.
