Default My first post of my projects

I've been on this forum for a while and never posted of what I've been doing so here goes.

Firstly I built a garage (hereafter known as the workshop) side door, sadly it's not 100 pc visible so no photo of it but it's a lot better than the one that was falling apart.

Then I decided to try and clear the workshop to panel the walls and try to keep it a little warmer. So I built a timber rack. The doors are held back until I get a bolt for the top but that's not the priority here as it's gonna get cold soon.

Decided I needed a TS sled, so built one. The plans for this one are all over the web but I did add a 3" plastic cover over where the blade runs and, as you can see in the second TSSled pic, it also covers where the blade comes through the fence so fingers should remain attached.

The 3rd TSSled image is the angle fence. I have 2 of them, one for each side, and they have slots on the top for hold downs to run in.

I have heeded the voices of this forum and made a couple of push sticks so fingers remain attached, the first is a 3/4" one and the second is about 1 3/4" with removeable handle from the shopnotes magazines.

Then I decided to build a rack for my G Clamps which, once the panelling of the walls is complete, will sit on a french cleat system.

It's only 1/2" ply with a 2x4 main fence and a slightly thinner read fence. But it is about 25" deep. I'd seen recent posts about size of sled and people building smaller then building a second a little larger, then bigger still. Thought I'd go big to start then not have to build another.

Thanks Allen, the siding it shiplap air nailed. There are 4 'shelf' levels plus the bottom level which is also 1 1/4" off the ground. The rain isn't quick to vacate that area so all wood had to be raised. The doors are bi-fold as a single door each side was too wide. Everything is finished, top coat, using decking oil. No rain sits on it at all.

Nice job Angie. And you are right about building too small. I built mine with the attitude "I'll NEVER need anything bigger than this" <sigh> Proved wrong the first week I used it.

nice job. I am looking to build one myself. Did you just google table saw sleds or was there a specific title you looked up?
