The end of this past year saw the essential death of what was to have been a tiny shop/shed workshop. I went over ten months without completing or even beginning a single woodworking project and at the beginning of the year I was convinced it would be a VERY long time before that was to change but….it apparently all came to pass with my grandparents contacting me to let me know they had found me a tablesaw that a widow was parting with a few years after her woodworking husband had passed. As anyone with limited funds and high aspirations with their hobby will tell you that you never, ever, ever say no to free. Now let me introduce you to the beauty that I have been blessed to have been given even though it was left unattended for five years and had to subsequently be moved 100miles while being exposed to the elements of rain on an interstate.
It has since shined up well after enduring it’s adventure in getting home and having it’s heavy tail unloaded to the new workshop space that has opened up over the past few months.
A little automotive sandpaper sanding, lots of dry lube buffing and finally a setting coat of wd40 she is ready for some work!
...and yes this last image was BEFORE the sanding to remove any surface rust that could’ve started pitting that glorious steel top!
