There has been one major tool missing from our arsenal of woodworking machinery; the table saw. Thus far we have gotten around not owning a table saw by having things ripped to size at the lumber yard, or doing small ripping with our circular saw. While those options have done us okay, it really would be a lot more convenient/precise to have our own table saw. For example, we’re ready to make the drawer fronts for the media cabinet, and we have to rip down three sizes of lumber to get it all done.
El Granto celebrated a birthday this past week, and received an (awesome) new table saw as a birthday gift from his parents! Yahoo! Last night he spent a couple hours assembling it with a giant grin on his face. It was like Christmas in our garage.
Due to the loud nature of the saw, and the late hour in which El Granto finished assembling it, we haven’t tried it out yet. However I expect El Granto will be rushing home from work today to fire it up.
Is it weird to be this excited about a saw? I think we need to get out more…
