Guess what I got?
A new sliding miter saw! So how better to show off its capabilities by solving a storage problem. Summer calls for those extra duvets to be tucked away AND I just happened to have a few pieces of plywood offcuts sitting around waiting to be used.
Here a single solution for all those “problems”: a four-foot wide blanket chest, just right to fit at the end of the bed, and solid enough to sit on while pulling up your socks. Next I will have to find a problem requiring actual miter cuts, rather than the straight-angled ones of this one, but the saw worked a treat. And so did the spindle sander for the curves, and the router for the bullnose edges.
