Finished my toybox shelf today! I will post pictures tomorrow, but right now my daughter is sleeping in the room that it's in.

And I'll get to that picture sometime...

In the meantime, recommendations for a miter saw? I'm not listening to Michael, since he'll recommend one that costs more than my house. wink

Here I am, replying to myself. Here's the pics:


The top, which I am particularly proud of. Ignore the poor pocket hole filling and plugs on the inside...


Occupied with the bins.


And another shot occupied. I really like what shellac does in terms of depth of finish and bringing out the grain, as well as the lovely satin/gloss you end up with (even without all the wax I put on it.) Like I said before, I built this from pine 1x2s and maple plywood.

Ken, I think that's awesome! Great job!

I have two miter saws that I like: A beastly Makita 12" slider and a much-more-manageable DeWalt that I use as a "portable".

So Mark, do you have the laser for the DeWalt? I have to admit, the geewhiz factor of a laser appeals to me. If it works.

So I'm thinking the DeWalt 717, with one of their stands and a Freud 80 tooth 10" blade. I'm really happy with that blade on my table saw, but I'm kinda wondering if maybe I should get a lower tooth count, just so I have both available. But I'm honestly not sure when I would use the lower count blade. Advice, oh wise ones?

Loc: It's all about the location.
Ken, depending what you will be using the mitre saw for, I would get a DUAL beveling saw of 12", with sliding bearings for the extra width capacity and if it were me I`d also get one with a tall fence which is necessary for jobs like crown mold. Dewalt, Makita, Bosch etc, all make nice saws so I`d look for the best deal on any one of them. I`ve been using a Craftsman 12" dual bevel slider for a few years with various Freud and Hitachi blades...it's a reliable saw, but I wouldn't recommend it due to some poor design features that are somewhat dangerous imo.

Ken, my Ridgid miter saw is available for long-term loan. I'll likely have little use for it in the new rental and it'll save me having to move it if you keep it in your shed and use it at will. If I do anything with tools

I found that the laser was pretty accurate. If you find that it's not shining right on the cut line, you can adjust the angle of the beam with a little hex nut.
