I’d like to hear more about the finish. The box looks great. I do like the panel design, including the double on the end.

is the darker color just weathered pine, or is it produced. Its hard to tell from the picture. If its weather, you did a great job with color selection.

Wow…that ’s awesome. I love the geometry involved too. It makes for an interesting design. And I also spied with my little eye your Grizzly G0690 in the background. How do you like it? I’m about to pull the trigger on it myself.

i bought the saw used about 8 months ago it was a steal at $1000.00 i was looking for a powermatic 66 and saw it on craigslist and figuered at that price i could flip it if i didnt like it but its not leaving i was impressed and would recommend it to any one great power. but most of the toy box was made on a small craftsman jobsite saw.
