Default My Shop & Recent Cut

Hi All:

Well I'm limited to space so I use my kitchen (constant complaints from the wife) I currently have a Hitachi CW40 saw which fits nicely in the corner. Between the mini-shop vac and the fan in the window I get very little residual dust.

I recently completed this cut. Made from 1/4" baltic birch plywwood. Used FD(Flying Dutchman) PSR5 blades. Tried something different and added a colored backing.

Thumbs up

Nice work ! I like the multi color background. I like the pattern as well. Is it original or did you purchase it ? Also I noticed you have something mounted to the side of your stand, is that for holding blades ?

Keep up the good work !

Good job, I like the simplicity of your shop.

Great work, I absolutely love your dedication to woodworking, working in the kitchen works,,, or bathtub, I my self used to live in a apartment complex with no room either. My drill press was on the end table in the living room when I wasn't drilling my mother-in-law used it as a lamp to read by.. and the table saw was in the dining room with a sheet of plywood on it for a table when not in use.. brings back memories. keep going like you are your doing a great job.

Hi All:

Thanks...I get my patterns from public domain free sites. Unfortunately I didn't bookmark that one (par for the course for me). The blade holders are 1/2" pvc w/caps mounted on a piece of poplar.
Here's a few sites...

You guys are sooooo lucky.

I mentioned, in jest, today that I might let my wife live in the bedroom and I can purchase a TS and Jointer and set them up in the living room.


I think the divorce papers are in the mail......LOL

Very nice result, keep it up.

Hi Frank: Great job indeed! I was going to purchase a scroll saw to use in an area down in my basement but thought that it would make too much of a mess. However, seeing your set up is making me rethink not buying the saw. Thanks for the encouragement!

BTW, where in CT are you locate? I'm in Killingworth.
