    The red table used to be the big green egg table. Now has new wheels, all the holes boarded over and paint. Built that little saw table add on for the easy push through. And I got me that new Skill saw too. Now happily cutting plywood again for another home improvement project.

    I passed on another DIY egg table and bought the factory model instead;

    Current project (stack of ply on table) is one support for a new fold up computer desk for the office which will replace the huge angled monstrosity there now. Plan to hinge it to the wall so when it comes time for new flooring, just fold it up. I'll paint the wall before I screw the brackets into the studs and another room will soon be repainted and re-floored. Which will leave 2 to finish the entire house - :smiley:

    FF34D466-1AB0-46E5-8BA5-AEB52DEC7297.jpeg Nice table saw set up. I am about to use my old grill base to build a permanent location for my chop saw.

    Just finished a new outdoor grill setup. Cooked on it for the first time tonight. Need to finish it up with some stain. So far it has worked well

    That looks good! I like the lights.

    I just couldn't toss the old "egg crate" inna trash, I did a nice job with good materials and Kelly hated the sawhorse workbench, so conversion was perfect.

    98502883-586D-4021-B84E-5B9843C296B3.jpeg Mike not as pretty as your saw table but it functions and also put the old grill base to work for my chop saw. I always wanted a more permanent mount for it but never got around to doing it. Perhaps some day it will see some paint.

    Great reuse Mike. You make more sawdust than most of us. I have too many power saws in the basement and don't use them enough. Your backyard cooking area is better equipped than most kitchens!

    Hey Rick, that's a beautiful grill surround. Is it red cedar?
