Thank you all for the compliments on the saw horses, that means a lot.
Mdntrdr and JohnK, since you're close to me, can you tell me where you get your wood? A friend of mine gets his at Menards, but the selection isn't what I was hoping for. I know I can get some exotic wood at Woodcraft and Rockler, but I don't think I'm ready to spend quite that much.
Mr Mac, a table saw is on my list of things to buy and I thought I had picked one out until I did a little more research. I was planning on buying the Jet JWTS-10 because the first reviews I found on that saw were pretty good, but then I started finding more and more where owners were dissatisfied. My wife would like me to buy the new Saw Stop 115V saw that's out this summer, but that exceeds my $800 budget by a few dollars. I've now been thinking about the new Grizzly saw that's coming in September, but since its new I'm not sure if that would be the best idea either. Suffice it to say, I'm a bit lost right now. If anyone has some suggestions I would appreciate it.
My next project is going to be a couple of small bookshelves from Knock-off Wood for my kids. The plans seem pretty straighforward and I can use 1 X 12's instead of MDF, thus eliminating the need for a table saw.
