I know it will be highly unpopular on this day of love and hearts to write a post about something you hate but I'm doing it regardless.
I hate my compound mitre saw! I don't think my saw is really worse than any other (although it might be) but my hate comes from my inability to conquer the concept of compound mitre cuts.
I spent the better part of my Saturday afternoon battling with this king of fancy cuts and I did NOT reign victorious in the end.
Remember the bookcase I told you about last week? I'm working on this as my current project. I decided that if I added a hefty piece of crown molding to the top of it that I could hide some white lights on the top and it would give a nice glow and some much needed additional lighting in the room. How hard can it be, right?
I am a stubborn sort and refuse to succumb to the bullying tactics of this saw. I am writing down all the specifications on some of the scraps where I have accomplished the cut I set out to make. Once I get a few instructional pieces together I will share with you so that you never have to fall to your knees for a mitre saw.
In the meantime, this is where I'm headed to buy an additional piece of molding because apparently 13 feet isn't enough for this project:(
Enjoy your Valentine's Day!
