The closet was the first project with the new saw!! Still have to put the other 3 drawers in and touch up that little spot towards the bottom of the tower. and yes, the shelf that the tower sits on is slightly bowed (even though it was doubled-up MDF), but it is braced underneath with a piece on edge. The bed was made last year. The design was taken from a platform bed we found online that sold for $1300 (and it was RTA furniture)!! Cost to build our bed? $130-ish!!
This project is a very simple box, it is my new patch panel for the structured wiring in my house. The case is made from 3/4" AC plywood, the face frame is 1x2 common pine. The thing I am most happy about this project is that it was my first piece of case work; I managed to get it all out of 1 sheet of plywood (cutlist is nice for this); and had good enough planning that I was able to use the same setup for each cut that was supposed to be the same length.
Existing tools used: TS3650, CMS, Jig Saw, and cordless drill/driver.
New Tool: RIDGID 2" hole saw (to cut the grommet hole, so that the power cables can be neatly routed through the bottom and to the outlet up top rather than crossing the front.
It replaces an old one that I made out of MDF.
The old one ran out of slots; was so high you needed a ladder to plug things in and out; wasn't very neat; and the weight of the shelf made it sag.
