I celebrated a birthday earlier this month and never showed you the fabulous gift I received from my son.
My very own compound miter saw!
And yes.....it is exactly what I asked for!
My son may not always understand me but he is very supportive of all my crazy ideas.
I wanted to start with an easy project and it didn't take long to figure out what to cut first.
Ever since I made the tiered pie plate stand pictured below (posted here), I have wanted to make another one using a wood rolling pin as the center support. A good idea in my head, but I didn't have the right equipment to cut the rolling pin.
No problem now.
The miter saw cut effortlessly through the wood to give me the pieces I needed for my tiered pie plate stand.
Once the pieces were cut it was easy assembly. Some E-6000 glue did the trick to hold the rolling pin and pie plates together.
Initially I did not plan to have the red base piece on the stand. The stand was wobbly so I glued a small plate, that I spray painted red, to the bottom of the stand to stabilize it.
I'm thinking this would be a cute piece in the kitchen to hold spices.
Or maybe an overripe banana or two.
I'm declaring my first miter saw project a success.
I think I'm going to have fun with this thing.
Have a wonderful evening.
