I am in the market for a new saw. I've owned a POS big box store contractor saw for the past 7yrs and am finally fed up with it. While in art school I daily used a Unisaw and enjoyed the fact that I could achieve accurate cuts with it time after time. My search has taken me towards either the...

Lately my chisels have been strewn around my bench. They had no place to go and kept falling onto the floor, dulling the edges. I got tired of this and so decided to make a chisel rack from whatever wood I had lying around.
