  • Saw running - First project done!

    Just thought I'd share the fact that my TS3650 is up, running and making accurate cuts. Wow, what an improvement over my old saw. The desk pictured below was built for the computer that "Santa" brought my kids at Christmas.
    Thanks for all the help guys.

          It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

            Very nice, Skip!!
            I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                  Nice job Skip. I like the edge profile on the tabletop - how did you mill it?

                    Very nice job, what type of wood did you use it is hard to tell from the pick?

                        Thanks to all for the encouragement and kind words. As a professional musician and teacher of 25 years, it's amazing how little you know even though you are learning all the time.

                        To respond: The desk is made of 3/4 maple pylwood, drawers of 1/2 plywood and door faces or 1/4 plywood. The 1/2 and 1/4 plywood were of decent quality but not necessarily maple. I chose maple because my HD had it on sale for $25 a 4/8 sheet.

                        I cheated on the finish. It's MinWax Polyshades Honey Pine stain and poly in one product. It's good for an impatient person like myself!

                        The edge detail on the desktop is 1x2 maple with a 3/8 roundover on each side. It's glued up with biscuits. I just set up my hand held router and moved some clamps around the pieces - tedious but Norm Abrams has more toys than me!

                        There might be an addition to the top of this desk for storage. I'll keep you all posted!
                        Thanks again.
