I just received my new sliding Miter Saw and was looking for a simple project to try it out. I thought that this would be a good test of my saw because it had some 30 and 45 degree cuts in addition to the normal 90s. It's made of untreated Pine and sealed with Thompsons water seal used on decking. It's nothing fancy, but turn out really nice. It is big/strong enough to hold 4 kids at the same time, with plenty of room to spare. My daughter loves the table. She helped daddy build it.
