My day job can be pretty stressful and this is a good distraction for me to ‘turn it all off’. I love the smell of fresh cut hardwoods and the hum of a finally balanced table saw.


I feel the same exact way. I have a running gag with Joyce where I come up from the shop at the end of the day, act like I just remembered something important and say "CRAP! You know what I forgot while I was down in the woodshop?" She feigns along and asks "what?" and I reply "Everything!" with a smile!

I also use a Rigid table saw

Which one? I just bought the 3630 for $330 because Home Depot


was making room for the new Granite-topped ones. It's not the cabinet saw I planned on retiring with, but better than my Craftsman as it has a much better fence and better rip capacity, dust collection, great mobile base setup... etc.

It's funny how many tools we have in common. I forgot to mention in my "about me" post that I bought a Porter Cable bicuit joiner and compressor/3 gun setup that I love!

Good to have you in the gang! If I could ever build a piece of furniture as nice as Ken, a wine room as nice as yours, or the rest of my house as good as Adrian, I'd die a happy man! \:\)

My some of you have nice toys. My table saw is a Rexon. Never heard of them? They're made in the same factory as all those brand name jobies, but cost a lot less.

I can't say I have made a lot. My first major piece was an aquarium stand I made in a class at my local college. Got to use their shaper, planers 'n stuff to make it pannel construction out of cherry.

My last project was a canoe seat using hand cut mortice & tennon joints. It was surprisingly easy.

$330.00 is a steal for that table saw Mark. Mine was $350.00 CN, it's the portable version of the Ridgid.

Ummmm....photos?

C'mon, Fred..... you know the forum rules.

We're just letting Adrian off the hook at the moment because he's building a camera from a wood block.

Yeah, that's why I couldn't pass it up. I still had enough left over from the CFO's "WoodShow Budget" to get the planer, and everything else I wanted except a dovetail jig, so why not? \:\)

Only if you're willing to carry around all that weight.

I build my cameras out of basswood. \:\)

BASSwood would be good for subs wouldn't it?

I use the table top Rigid saw as well with the folding stand, need a bigger garage or dedicated room to use anything else. Anything I use has to be put away and be as compact as possible, we actually park cars in our garage too, which was very nice today considering the foot of snow we just received
