Smaller Assembly Table for Son in Law


Recommended Posts

I got a little more done.  Glued up some of that free plywood to make some beefier blanks.


A carbide scraper is reasonably priced and save wear and tear on more refined tools for things like scraping off glue squeeze out.


I cut parts out of the blanks.


Double check my layout for the supports.  I need to clear any clamp positions and allow for easy reach-under as well.


A little bandsaw work.  The 10" Rikon handled the 1-1/2" plywood blanks with no problem.


A spindle sander is your friend for sanding curves.  I ganged the parts with clamps.


Hope to finish off the supports tomorrow.

I think it raised above the drawer cabinet looks pretty neat but then I wondered why you didn’t just make the cabinet taller? And after opening a beer and going back thru the series, I’m glad now that I didn’t ask! ;)

I will ask though, what is the purpose of the grid lines on your sled? Maybe I should have opened another beer?

It is a Matchfit clamp sled shown here.  I am using Grandpa's old saw with no wings and a stock rip of 11" while between shops.  The Matchfit grid let's me clamp larger things down and hold odd shapes.  If it proves useful it may earn a spot in the new shop as a cross-cut / joinery machine.
