I finally got some real woodworking tools ..Like Grizzly cabinet Saw, a grizzly band saw and a grizzly cyclone dust collector. The stuff arrived in pallets that looked like it was in a truck wreck! The grizzly guys were very apologetic and sent all the replacement parts. Finally after setting everything up, I started on my first project.
The design for the saw stand was originally published in a fine woodworking magazine by Jason Teag. I modified it to my dimensions (except the drawer box which is standard as necessitated by the pre made drawers from Lee valley Tools). I modeled it out in google sketchup and went about chopping wood (err MDF). Took me a couple of weekends to get it all together. But it all worked out.
Once problem that i encountered was that once I made the saw kerfs for the drawer, the MDF panel bowed inward! Had a hell of a time trying to square it!
I am planning to add extension wings to add support to long stock.
