|how to use up scraps....|
The next thing I started working on for the past few days is my outfeed table. When I was building my cabinets, I had a few moments when I probably could have killed myself because I was cutting wood that was too big for the saw to support. That lead to me doing some extremely creative things to keep my work supported.
I was originally going to build an outfeed table a while back, but I wanted to get on to building my cabinets first. This time I picked up a sheet of oak plywood mostly because it was the easiest piece to get at Home Depot and it seemed to be the flattest piece there. It didn't take me much time to cut the pieces I needed to size, and get everything worked out so it fit properly on my table saw.
Since I didn't feel like installing laminate on the top, I decided I'd use this as a chance to give me some practice at staining and finishing. I picked up some mahogany stain and a new can of polyurethane and got to work this afternoon.
