A cheese slicer I made as a Christmas present. Thanks to some outstanding craftsman that posted similiar projects it helped me out a bunch. However, I did make some designer firewood on my first try, actually I was able to recycle most of it for an end grain project. The mistake happen because I did not consider how the hole placement matched up with the hardware, I guess the rule should also be mark once verify and then drill. For those of you that do not have a sliding miter saw, my method of cutting the groove was to tape a scrape piece of 3/4 plywood the thickness needed to the table saw miter gauge, laid the board on top of that to get the proper angle.

I’m with Monte, very well done and I particularly like the description of “designer firewood”.

Beautifully done … I have a cutoff bin with a bunch of “designer fire wood” too.
It took a while for the “proper angle” statement to sink in … The kerf is deeper on the drilled side. (Duh)!

Thanks every one for the nice comments. Monte I got the hardware from the spot ken indicates I believe under replacements parts or something along that line.
