  • New saw station

    I ended up returning my saw last night. I had to get the same saw for a replacement,it was either spend money I didn't have for an upgrade or get a gift card or just get the same thing to get back to cutting. Its the Lowes way

    This morning prior to getting it out of the box I decided I wanted a better area to work. My wife's sister gave us a small wooden eating table so here is what I came up with.

    I like that, it is novel and it is still functional.
    Mine would be clutered with coffee cups, sawdust and cutoffs by the end of the day but I still like it.

        Very neat indeed Steve...we have a new table in the!

          Steve, is that where you intend to cut? If so, may I make a suggestion? You're going to be very sorry for not covering that carpet. Getting sawdust out of it will be virtually impossible. Go get yourself either a painter's canvas cover, or even better a scrap of linoleum.

          Besides the carpet, I love your new workstation. It's very practical and hopefully the next time we see it, it isn't so neat! Go make some sawdust!

                Very nice! A very inviting work station, of course any scroll saw is inviting!

                    Got it covered Mia, Since I am renting and Its kind of hard to talk this lanlord into anything and she had a cow when I mentioned I wanted to replace the carpet in there (my expense). I picked up a work cloth somewhere that has weights built in to the sides to hold it in place for my other hobbies. When I got my saw I started using it. When done for the day I vacuum the work area then take the cloth outside and shake it out then I'm good to go for another day.

                      What a great idea looks good.

                        Steve, must have taken a big blade on your scroll saw to cut that chunk out of the table. Cool setup.

                          I actually thought about running it in the scroll saw and cut a design out on the left side of the table then I got thinking about all that dust and how hard it would be to keep clean. I guess I could get creative and make a removable backer for the bottom so I could remove it and blow it all out or use my dremel and inset the table to install a glass frame flush with the table top. Maybe a later project or modification

                            Steve that is fancy!

                            As a side note, from the air it would look like PacMan...eating a scroller.

                                Cute Pattern.
                                I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                                This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                                No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
