I am building out my shop. I haven been around furniture making, including a brief stint at a 500+ people hotel furniture factory, but never did much personally.

I just got a Hitachi 12” dual compound miter saw for a house repair project. It chops wood like salami! I went about chopping all the sticks lumber at home and made a bunch of carts.

This is the first step to tidy up and find a home for all small objects before moving on to bigger things.

No fancy wood work haha but hope someone find the recycling aspect useful.
