How I built Jim a Mobile Scroll Saw Table

Ha ha. Actually I just helped, but seems someone was taking pictures unbeknownst to me. So without further ado…here is how it went down.

We bought a new scroll saw people!! So exciting. You have no idea. Here is our old one.

Just a baby.

And our old one on the left beside our new one on the right.

See…bigger.

Having a much bigger scroll saw means it will be easier to cut out our maps or any project really. It also means that it is heavy so you can’t be lifting it off the shelf when you need to use it. It deserves needs it’s own mobile stand.

The scroll saw came from the factory already mounted to a thin piece of plywood so we left it that way. Jim brought several one inch boards into the workshop and got ready to cut to length. We measured to determine the size of table we needed to build. Jim did all the cutting of the wood but there are no pictures to prove he helped me build this thing. So on to screwing them together (my job).

We decided to build the stand 43 x 18 inches.

Screwing the legs.

After the four legs were done, I set them aside and started on the two frames, one for the top and one for the bottom.

Building the frames.

Jim cut slats to be screwed to each of the frames. Again, no proof. 🙂

Camera guy must have slacked off because next I apparently added the legs and joined the two slatted frames together.

Finishing touches.

Next we heaved the scroll saw onto the new stand and screwed the factory plywood to the stand so there would be no vibration when sawing.

Oh yeah, one thing Jim did do was attach wheels to the bottom, I know this because I saw it with my own two eyes.

Now time to admire my work apparently.

All done.

Your welcome Jim.

Actually Jim instructed and I constructed…team work.

Later

Jim: I returned the favour by making her a homemade apple pie.
