    Can you believe they made a deck table out of these pieces?

    very beautiful colors and grain.... is it cypress? or cedar? or did I just show my lack of knowledge on wood types?

      That's pretty neat.

        Sadly, there are some who would have turned it into a bonfire.

          I would not have done that. But, at least cover the top piece with Envirotex(plastic coat) & never put something as nice as that on the bottom of the pedistal. That is a waste. I would have used it for something more attractive, like a clock maybe. Anyway, it sure was a waste. My 2 cents worth.

            I would have used it for something else but at least the beauty of the wood is being shared with others instead of being on a burn pile.

              Hi Rob - Definitely not my idea of a good way to use two splendid looking pieces of timber but obviously someone likes the result and I'd be a liar if I said that I'd never seen anything done like this before. I guess before we criticize too much we should remember the saying 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'.

                The top piece at least gets to show off. I wouldn't consider it going to waste.

                The burn pile's what gets me. I was visiting a friend last night and every time he tossed a piece of maple in the firepit I saw the artwork screaming to be let out. I would have grabbed a stack if I wouldn't have to truck it home on an airplane. I'm not nearly as hardcore as Sr. Packs-a-Scrollsaw.

                    by Bill Wilson
                    I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                    Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                    And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                    Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
