Default My first piece of furniture

Here is a photo of my first piece of indoor furniture ever.


I used my new EZ-One for most of the work. I must add that I am impressed with how easy the EZ-One is for a beginner to use. I have been using a table saw for rough work for a number of years, and even with a miter sled, the EZ-One equals or exceeds the accuracy of my contractor's table saw.

Nice job! (I know where you got that cup) Did you taper the legs on the EZ?

Bet you wish you made two of them (just speaking from experience).

Default Thanks

Thanks for the kind words.

Yes, I did the tapered legs on the EZ-One. Although I have a taper jig for the table saw, I found it easier to do on the EZ-One.

Soon as I finished the table, my wife asked me when I was going to make the second. Of course, that is the most sincere compliment there is.

Neal,

Very nice job! I think everytime I use EZ tools, I end up using them just a bit different.

Today I was putting some dado's in a 32" x 48" board. I had about a 25" arm on the SSRK. That allowed me to just line up the EZ Rail with the end of the board when I made the dado's. I had to use the SSRK at both ends of the board but it sure was simple to setup.

Later I was using my PBB to cut some shelves. I was able to set stops for both ripping and crosscutting at the same time. This was a real time and motion saver.

The more you use your EZ-1, the more unique ways you will find to use it.


Burt

Very nice job. Just going to start getting back into the EZ way of doing things myself.

That's beautiful and I'm impressed that it is your first piece of indoor furniture ever. The miters on the top are impressive, too. What kind of wood is it? You made nice use of the grain.

Thanks.

The mitered part is white oak, which is actually left over plank flooring. The rest is red oak.

I am still amazed how easy the miters were on the EZ-one. In the past, I made and used a miter sled on my table saw, and the miters still were a fussy operation.
