I have a CMS, just the "yankee" version. I want the saw insert, I think we need to talk.

Made this using just a Domino, Kapex and OF 1400 off this one jig.

Thanks for reminding me, MFT 3 and RO 125 were also used------- to curve the top.

Using the rail on the MFT and 1400 with a 3/4" bit, I started in the center of the seat plunged 10 mm, moved seat 3/4" plunged 9.5 mm, moved seat 3/4" plunged 9 mm. Nine plunges each direction 0.5 mm height adjustment each plunge. Did the upper of the seat first, so when I flipped it to do the bottom it was nested on the ends. Another 18 plunges, shaped with the 125. Easier to do than type.

The only things holding this together are glue and dominos. There are 12 in each leg at the bow tie. I had to make some 3" dominos to retain the top and go through the bow tie tying the legs together. There are 12 dominos in each leg at the bow tie.

Here are the dominos through the top 3" long quarter sawn white oak.

Yes and no. Depends what you want from it. I don't use my table saw to cut thick material or large sheets so no need for a big table saw. This setup kills 2 birds with one stone. It's a router table and saw. It has built in legs so no need to carry a stand around so frees up my mft that i use for a stand with my current saw and it uses tools I currently already have. Space is at a premium in my trailer so having tools like this saves on weight and space. I can also use my UG stands and MFT's if I'm running. Longer material though the saw. it's a light weight setup as well which is nice when you carrying it through a house.

That's just crazy for that . I can buy a lot of dew with that . . Do the dew . I think if I stopped drinking so much maybe I could get a setup of festool tools . At least drink 3 12 oz bottles a day.
