« Part 1: The Ultimate Work Table Part 2 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 3: Powermatic Delivered today »

I just was notified that my table saw was shipped. I also took delivery of my rotary phase converter. I won’t be able to start the project until I have my table saw set up.

Today I’ll go to my local hardwood supplier and make the decision about what species to use for the WT’s construction. I hope I can find some 16/4 hardwood and a piece of plywood along with a remnant sheet of laminate for the table top.

I need some 2 X 12 stretchers. Allen uses doug fir on his. I hope to find a species of hardwood in serious dimension ( 8/4 X 40/4) but that may be a wet-dream. If not I’ll select fir 2-2X12s.

Once I start drawing up the plans I’ll look for material dedicated to shelving and drawers. I can use poplar for the large drawers and unless there’s something else that strikes my fancy that is my choice.
