Just started WW again after a 20+ yr absence.
As such, I'm trying to take over our single car garage. I have a 4000W electric box heater to keep off the chills. I sold the old Rockwell 9" and got a new General Table saw. A bit of over kill, but it's sure nice to have a quality machine.
Hobbies: Some camping, motorcycles, real bar b que.

I used 7/8” x ¾ thick walnut and 1” x ¾ thick Cherry for the splats. A bit of glue up. A pass or 2 with the belt sander and it’s all good. The blade on the chop saw isn’t so great and back of my sled wasn’t long enough so I had to...
Well after a month and a bit, a small bathroom reno, and a few side projects I’m finally moving on to my table build. After considerable browsing on numerous web sites, on line catalogs and posts by other LJ’S, I have decided to try my hand at a ...
