Woodworking for Wargamers: Miter Saw Workbench Done!, Post 7

Posted on September 10th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

 When last we left the Miter Saw Workbench saga, a bunch of old plywood had been cut to make a swinging arm.  That’s not really a cliff hanger but stick with me, Here’s the arm mostly assembled – I made it really sturdy (aka heavy) to ho…

Woodworking for Wargamers: Miter Saw Bench Change of Plans, Post 6

Posted on September 5th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Pictured is what I think is a good set of hand tools one would need to be able to start into woodworking.  By now I’ve got 5x this number but these are the ones I use the most.  Total cost for all of these new is around $400.00 but if taken c…

The projects continue. I’ve been a bit all over the place with them the past few weeks. If one project needs downtime (IE: washes drying, glue setting up, etc.), I’ll jump on to the next project. So, I’ve got a bit of this and that.   Raptors A un…
