This is the first project that I have posted here on Lumberjocks. Thanks to all of your advice that you’ve given me in the short time that I have been here.
I wanted to make a table for my miter saw, so I got some ideas from you. The dimensions are 22” wide, 24” deep and 38” from the cutting table to the floor. I had a bunch of scrap, so I decided to make it out of that, rather than buy new lumber. In fact, some of the dimensions were dictated by what I had on hand. For example, the shelf inside is a little short…I made the best with what I had. The top and bottom are 3/4” plywood and the sides are 1/2” OSB. I’m not a fan of using OSB for this type of project, but I didn’t have any plywood long and wide enough.
I left the top side edges unfinished, as I will eventually add “wings” to extend the fence on both sides.
The miter saw is a Chicago Electric 12” that I picked up from Harbor Freight Tools. I changed the blade out for the Freud Diablo 80 tooth before I even plugged it in (another great idea from you). It’s not pretty, but it’s functional.
Once again, I sincerely appreciate the ideas and advice that you all have given me.
