Well here goes. This is my next project.

I got most of my ideas from:

http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?t=6445

http://www.woodcentral.com/shots/shot390.shtml

I didn't want to spend $1000 for one of these soooo. I work with a program called TurboCad. I worked in 3D rather than taking a 2D plans and expanding them. Since the "wood" is all drawn "Full Size" you can get all your measurement directly from the item.

I didn't want to dedicate a router so I got a Duel speed motor from a local supplier (steal at $50) It is pretty heavy and that is why the box is "built to last."

The slides are from Home Depot. The smallest heavey duty ones they had were 14"

I started cutting the pieces today. Will be able to make all them out of one sheet of 3/4 Birch Ply. I will take pictures as I make it.

What say you???

No problemssss.

I have a zip file with the dxf file and some jpg's. It is 600 K so can't post it. I can also print up some "distructions" [thats what we call them] and mail if any one can't get a hold of a CAD program. :thumbsup:

P.S. here is a detail of how I plan to make the raiser. I will use the plastic stuff we all use for jigs as "frictionless" bearings and "lock nut" it together.

Progress. I finished the rough cut.

I have a very small shop so the only way to cut down a full sheet is to hang it over my workbench and table saw with a sacrifical sheet under to protect.

the pile to the right is what is left of the full sheet. sweet.

Know the feeling, sometimes I'm cutting up the plywood on the tailgate as I unload it. Makes cleanup a little easier though, just have to grab the blower and blow the dust out into the yard.
