Amazing what you can do with scrap wood

After making the DVD shelf as far as I could take it, I wasn't done putzing around in the shop. A friend from work gave me some scrap 2x4s and 1/8 inch paneling. I had some caster wheels my brother Denny gave me, and knew that I was tired of "dancing" with my mitre saw every time I wanted it out of the way. Well, some ingenious afternoon thinking led me to this roller rack I made. This baby makes getting my mitre saw out of my way soooo much easier!

I guess it's a good thing to have a supply of 2 1/2" Kreg screws lying around, as they secured the 2x4 frame nicely. Some finishing nails and screws/washers later, and I attached the plywood strips to help keep the saw from falling off the stand. The casters beneath it allow for easy travel when I don't need this saw in my way.

And then I still wasn't done on Saturday, so I whipped this little box out. My roommate's mother wanted me to make yet another small box for her granddaughter (my roommate's niece). It's her birthday in March, and Daren's mom wanted her to have one too. Here's hoping that family isn't TOO big, otherwise I'll be cranking these things out til Kingdom Come...

There is no vibration whatsoever, really. It's a downward movement, so I don't fear it rolling away on me. Not like a table saw where you're pushing the wood away from you. If I really needed to lock it down, the casters below have that capability. The plywood sides were meant to keep the saw on the stand at all times. It works really well for me, and I dreampt it up on the fly last Saturday. I didn't worry about drawing out plans, it just came to me.

The caster solution is sweet!
Message me about the un-postable picture and I'll see if I can 'debug' it. How big is the file, what .type is it, and where will it not post?

Sigh... OK, WHY can't I post certain pictures in my blogs?

Replacing existing slides but cannot remove drawer front

The Kreg slides are made to work with new drawers before putting on the drawer front. In my situation, I cannot remove the existing fronts which means when reversing the jig to hold the draw, it’s at an angle. Not sure what I should do to make them…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
