Built out of pine 2×4s and 3/4 plywood – about $40 worth of materials.
This was my first opportunity to use my new Ridgid R4512 table saw. I have since upgraded to a Freud Premier Fusion blade from the factory blade, and it is quite a difference!
Pretty much just ripped the 2×4s square, and the whole thing is held together with lag screws. Top is rabbeted into the frame.
Finish is one coat of primer and one coat of “Barn Board” color exterior paint.
Already starting to show some wood movement from being out in the rain, but that’s okay. As I said, nothing fancy. Will probably throw another coat or two of paint on it down the road.
It’s really something to use so my wife and I can pot plants with having to use my good workbench in the garage and get dirt all over it. (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/64625)
Just a fun, weekend project to start to get to know some of my tools.
