This is my favorite tool. It has changeable parts; a drill, jig saw, a little skill type saw, & a sander. This was my Christmas present a couple of years ago. Best one ever.
At some point I even had to pull out the big guns. The dreaded Skill Saw. Big scary noisy thing but everything else died and I was determined to get the pieces cut out.
So I put it together. I changed the length to fit the top piece that I had and put a 2 X 4 as the center brace. Just thought it would stronger and easier to hit with screws.
This is it unpainted with putty in the screw holes and no top piece. I did countersink the screws. Not well but I know how now. This thing is so heavy I can hardly pick it up. I used a 2 X 12 on the top which is really heavy. I didn't adjust the side pieces when I changed the length. They were just a hair short so I used them anyway.
Painting Comes Next!
