Table Saw Outfeed Table

Table Saw Outfeed TableUsing ideas from many different LJ's, Youtubers and my own, this is the table saw outfeed I've been wanting for several years. I used maple plywood and trim left from a sewing desk build. the last photo shows the holder for the 2 folding supports . The folding supports use 2 large nails to lock them in their open position that slide into place and have a stop to keep them in place while folded (see photo 4).
I used a long level clamped the the saws fence as one side and a board clamped in place (missing in the photo below) to guide a router while extending the saws miter slots.

Rubber bands and eye hooks are used to hold supports in folded position when lowering the table.

Cherry Coffee Table, bowties, a little epoxy, and Osmo Polyx

Cherry Coffee Table, bowties, a little epoxy, and Osmo Polyx A friend gave me this cherry slab 2 years ago and it wasn't quite dry enough to work with. After a couple years in climate control with good air movement I was comfortable machining it.Built a router sled, flattened the top, removed as much bark and waste as possible from the crack, learned that bow ties in cherry are hard. Had a little chip out in the cherry during final chisel cleanup. Eco proxy Flowcast in two pours, mainly for My experience level comfort. I was pleasantly surprised at how few bubbles arose. It's really really thin so use some good tape for sealing. I used 3m aluminum HVAC tape and was pleased with results.
Lots of sanding. Hand wet sanded epoxy to 1000g to make sure I didn't have any visible scratches. Finished with 2 coats of Osmo Polyx applied with white Scotch Brite pads.I got a little obsessive during the epoxy research because I knew I had one chance to get it right.She loves it. Oh yeah. Hairpin legs going on tomorrow when I pick up threaded inserts at woodcraft.

A box of angles

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


A box of anglesI made this box last year. Some people like it, some don't. It's one of those boxes where I've kind of given up on level lines, or perpendicular lines, or right angles in general. Not sure why; but it is fun, maybe even funny…who knows?Mainly, it's thuya burl and african blackwood. And lots of tiny pieces – curly sycamore, ebony, pink ivory, purpleheart, bloodwood, limba, verawood, pear, pau amarello, holly. Probably a few more.Gotta use up those little pieces of scrap…
