Ana gave me a compound miter saw for Christmas, so I can now attempt a few projects around the house like crown molding. I’ve never really been very good at building things, but I suspect that’s mostly because I: 1) just don’t try to often and 2) never have the appropriate tools. So, needless to say, thus begins what should be an interesting little adventure.
Yesterday I discoved that before I can actually properly use the new saw I need to mount it to a table/workbench. Well I don’t have a suitable table. Much to my dismay I learned that the solution to this is to… build one. So that’s what I did tonight – I built the frame of what is a very simple yet sturdy work bench. All that’s left is the table top and shelf and it’ll be ready to accept the saw and other tools. I was really surprised that it’s actually looking and feeling like a real, sturdy workbench!
I used this website as a guide, and will be making a few additions such as built-in electrical power with a switch to turn off the whole table.
