Testing the miter capabilities of the new table saw, I decided to put this together instead of just some random test cuts. Plus the frame clamp got used for the first time in (cannot remember how long ago I purchased it).

1/2” birch plywood, 1/8” birch bottom. Pine on the top to hide the ply’s edge.

Not much of a project, but it would be good on the kitchen counter for keys and such.

Thanks for looking!

You could call it a Small Parts Bin?! LOL

It’s nice to be able to get Something from the testing process isn’t it?

Drop a lid with pin hinges in there and it will come to life.

Looks like your miters are very accurate. Now you just need to make a nice lid and some wooden hinges! :)
