Hello, everyone.

I just joined the forum and look forward to learning a lot and contributing to others who are like me…...becoming addicted to woodworking.

It all started when my wife asked me to build our family (5 kids) a mudroom “locker” system to hang coats, backpacks, shoes, etc. Well, I have never really built anything like this before, but I while there were a lot of frustrations in the project, I am VERY happy with the way it came out. I’m not addicted to the tools, the artistry, and craftsmanship.
I need to buy a table saw (my first real woodworking tool) and leaning towards the Dewalt 7491X. Naturally, I will build a cross cut sled for it to make my work easier. However, I am also going to build a mobile workstation for it, so I can expand the support usage out of the saw.

More to come on other posts, I just wanted to say hi.

Here are some pics of the mudroom system I recently built:

Thank you BBob. It was fun to design and spec out. I learned alot from the build and hoping to use what I learned in future projects.

Welcome to Ljs
Super looking mudroom upgrade.I would think twice about buying a job site saw,they have very small table tops and don’t really lend themselves to ripping longer wood and sleds don’t always work that well on them. here’s a very informative blog our resident table saw guru wrote that might be helpful.

Thank you Jim! I just purchased a sliding 12” compound Miter saw (crown molding project). The rest of the items you listed are all on the radar. Table saw is next, then either a drill press or planer/joiner. I need to learn more about the difference between a joiner and planer. They sound very similar.
