This is my very first serious project made 10 years ago when I began with woodworking.It’s made of fir wood and walnut veneering.Only tools I used in this project were all I had than :small home made table saw,electric powered hand drill and handsander.My mother in law wanted some simple TV stand so she decided to take a chance on me.I thank her for that opportunity.

Very nice job with limited tools. I am as impressed that you made a table saw. You should post some pics of that. It seems to be a very functional cabinet and I am sure she is proud of it as well.

Thanks for comment Toxy.It’s a small table saw that my father in law made for me with fixed saw (I can’t adjust depth and angle).Dimensions of plate 60×70cm.Transmission from electromotor is with rubber belt.

You already know what I think about your work! You should post the cabinet that follows the angle of the ceiling.
That is an amazing piece of work. I really think everyone would appreciate seeing it.

Great looking Stand, she must be proud . It is amazing what you can make with a few tools and an idea. I always look at the first tables I built and I won’t own up to them anymore.LOL The wife still likes to use them I want to burn them.

Have your say...
