Portable Metal Cutting Bandsaw Stand

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Portable Metal Cutting Bandsaw StandI need to cut some lengths of metal stock and started looking at ideas to convert a metal cutting bandsaw into a portable vertical bandsaw.Wow, tons of ideas and projects on Youtube. This is my version.Guys mainly make these out of metal but since I don't have welding equipment, I used some scrap 4” x 4” douglas fir and plywood to make this holder. Luckily I have a buddy who gave me a piece of aluminum of the new table.The saw features a “dead man” switch which shuts the saw off when released. Since you need two hands to hold the stock, I rigged the trigger on “hold down mode” with piece of angle iron. I turn the saw on and off via the switch panel on the right hand side.About 5 hours of work and $12 for the holding hook and switch panel.Bob

Entry hall table made from front door.

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Entry hall table made from front door. When I replaced my front door I decided to put the door to use as an entry table for my home.The front and back rails are from a piece of scrap ambrosia maple I have on hand. If I had been smarter I would have saved some trim and used that.
I mounted a USB hub in the deadbolt hole, and used the deadbolt cylinder guard to help mount the lamp.
