Hi to all in the group
I am currently building a tool stand from a plan published in American
Woodworker from 2000.
I am at the point of deciding to use plastic laminate on all the top
sections of the tool stand which is made of 3/4 MDF. The design calls for
making slots in the top for a way to slide clamps into for holding wood you
are working on.
Here is my problem :
I have only a circular saw and a small Craftsman bench saw. I would normally
use a small router with a flush trimming bit to get an accurate nice edge to
the laminated top for the slots.
Would it be possible to buy a cheap laminate cutting blade for my circular
saw using a fence to cut the slots or would I be better off just using some
kind of laminate cutting scoring blade to do this?
I saw one version of the tool stand where a guy used laminate flooring
instead of plastic laminate sheet which I assume I can cut to size and do
the slots on the table saw just shifting the fence in small increments to
make the slots ( I have no dado blade).
As you can guess from this post I have very little in the way of power tools
at present as I am just starting out after moving from the UK and giving all
my tools away to family and friends.
Here is a link to the plan in case your puzzled about my question
Thank you in advance for any suggestions the group can give
