DIY Plywood Cutting Table

I completed my video on my Plywood Cutting Table! I think I am getting a little better at making videos too. They are getting more precise and to the point with less rambling and less "uhhh....." "and uh..." in it. Also, I think I ended up with a much better quality picture in the video since I rendered it to different specs.

I hope everyone enjoy's the video and feel free to comment and ask questions if you have one!

Things to come!

I am happy to say that I have finally figured out a solution to my video camera problems!

It all started when my computer became infected with a virus and my computer needed to go to the shop because it was beyond my capabilities to repair. My mother, as a favor, sent my computer to the shop to have it cleaned up and somehow the message got across to the computer tech's to just wipe my hard drive clean, or at least one of them (my important one). So anyways, I receive my computer back and realize what has happened and that I have lost quite a bit of important files. One of those files being a program called HD Writer which is used to get the videos off of my camera. Well, I try to find the disc with the program on it but failed time and time again to locate it. So time goes on and after much searching all across the internet I find a new program that can do the job, for $34. It was either buy the program or basically toss the camera, I bought it.

The first thing I did was I took the videos I made of the construction of my folding sawhorses and edited them and uploaded them to YouTube and posted it here on my blog, the previous post actually. Hopefully that video will get out to some people who need a nice stable sawhorse that can be stored out of the way easily.

The next thing on my agenda is to get some footage of my "accessories" that I use on top of my sawhorses to make working MUCH easier. The first thing is my miter saw stand.

This thing is great, it gives me something to use with my miter saw that will support longer pieces and gives me a bit of a fence to help hold the stock I am cutting straight. More information on this coming soon in a video!

Then there is my plywood cutting table. Usually, when using sawhorses, I would lay one or two 2x4's across the tops of the horses to act as supports when cutting my plywood. Making this table was pretty simple and cheap, well worth the effort. It is good for more than just ripping plywood too, it's a great work table on the job and in the shop also.

This thing will be featured in a video soon also! Be sure and check back soon, the videos will be here on my blog and also on my YouTube channel.
