Radial Arm/Miter Station

Decided where to place the miter saw So, started making cabinets which will be level with miter saw and radial arm saw.  I had seen an episode of NYW a few years back and Norm had made workshop cabinets pretty much the same way.

IMG_20151113_182547107Took a sheet of plywood and ripped to height and then cross cut with circular saw.  I ripped the remaining portion of the sheet into 4 strips.

IMG_0811 IMG_0812 IMG_0813Took 2x4s and mad half-lap joints for a counter base and attached that the top.  Then cut and scribed a piece of construction plywood to the top of that, and did the same with a piece of tempered hardboard.  Next step will be to make platforms on both sides for each saw and trim it out.

But…..

Had to call it quits for the day.  Had a honey-do list to work on as well.

Cheers
