Just because I've been buying lots of tools, that doesn't mean I know what I'm doing!

You think I knew what I was doing when I started the bathroom? \:\) I actually had visions of properly coping out the baseboard and top rail trim to make perfect corners, but I quickly ditched that in favor of 45° cuts, close enough, fit, and using caulk and paint to hide the sins. \:\) As it is, I only had two inner 90° corners to deal with.

start cutting until I reached my foot

The visuals on that one are a little scary.

Now to put that coveting to work all we need to do is rearrange a few sentances...

The most obvious project was a set of Muskoka chairs (Adirondack chairs south of the border) which require long angled cuts to make the slats.

 Quote:
so maybe the whole idea of using a circular saw to make the cuts is wrong

Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner. Coveting and justification all in one. You, my friend, need a cabinet saw and a nice taper jig ;\)

All this talk reminds me of an old adage I've always liked.

I don't want a boat. I want a friend with a boat.

You almost have it correct, Tom.
I do want a boat, but I want a friend to take care of it for me.

I want one of those hot, bikini-clad women I always see on boats.

Oh, and a good cheeseburger. And a nice, cold beer.

Now that I think about it, I don't need the woman....

to Bridgeman: Yes! Everything counts! Hole saws, forstener bits, brad points, chisel points, up cut, down cut, hammer drill bits, spade bits, et al.

Shop around for the cheapest bench you can find. I found one from Poland for $99. Then, I reinforced it and redrilled the metric dog holes. So, when I put the first router gouge in it, I didn't feel so bad.

And be careful with your "weekender" techniques. You could get very hurt.

Repeat after me: I want a table saw, I need a table saw. It's for my own safety and I'll work more precisley and efficiently.
Do it! Do it! Do it!

I had no idea such a thing as a taper jig existed, let alone was available from LV. I had also never heard of a cabinet saw; researching that also answered the pending question about what the heck a "hybrid saw" was. Thanks !

So I guess maybe I don't need a workbench at all ;\)

re: the taper jig, if you extend the saw cut to the other end of the wood it seems to touch the little bracket thing that pushes the wood along with the jig. Are those brackets supposed to be sacrificial, or is there a good reason the photographer stopped in mid-cut ?
