« Part 1: There's life left in That there Window Part 2 of Windows 20 series Part 3: sanding and repair work »

I am “fiddling about with some windows a friend Rob gave me.

I have been trying to re purpose them for what might end up being a display case fro a friend Dave.

The concept of the Display case design being 2 x windows at the front as the original design of the windows opening using euro hinges and then 1 x window at each side fixed and a filled in back all supported on a base with 4 x Legs and a top.

Final design to be decided by Dave

You may have seen my sanding efforts on the 2 x face sides.

Well 1 x window is a bit damaged so I have been using it to perfect my redesign but my table saw is not really big enough to do it so I added a side section.

Now trying to produce a precision level section outside on a drive way presents its own problems but I managed to get a satisfactory result, (as long as nothing moves on me!)

Its simply two lengths of timber from my stash of (Dad throw that rubbish out you never going to use it anyway) slotted under the existing table and resting on the motor door.
blocked in so it will not move and aligned by a precision monopole leg on the left.
and used packers to get a reasonable level.
Add a melomine top.

I then made a big Square from again my stash.

How it is supposed to work

Note the piece of ply the same thickness as the saw blade inserted between the square and the fence.
This is my cutting gauge.
Process
1. clamp the window frame to the square next to the saw blade
2. Bring the fence in to suit.
3. Remove the plywood gauge.
4. slide the square up to the fence
5. ensure everything is flush on the fence
6. saw the window frame monitoring the progress through the eye eye eye hole.

Check the results for square.

Looks to me no more than 1/2 mm out so thats OK.

So that’s the side table done and initial squaring process completed.

-- Regards Rob

Actually, that’s a neat addition to your tablesaw,

Put some wheels on the bottom of that shepely leg and youd have a sliding table.

But I question your iii viewport for a two eyed person… unless you have a cyclops looking over your shoulder.

PS. Hope your not reshaping that great sanding block on the tablesaw and your fingers would be too close to the blade to use as a push block.

Hey, hold onto the party hats and poppers… you know me and reading, it was just a lucky guess!
