You made that out of paper?

Craft Space – Day 1

on February 19, 2013

We actually started working on the desk! How exciting is that?!?!

Does this thing come in pink?

First things first, we (hubby) had to “prepare” the sawhorses by adding some wood to the top of them. I guess your supposed to use a 2×4, but we didn’t have any, so we just used some scraps we had for now.

Next, we (hubby, again) had to change the blade in the saw. He picked up a blade for laminate, it has either 120 or 150 teeth on it, for about $7.99. I was expecting this to be more expensive, but I’m ok with that price tag! We decided to go with using the circular saw rather than the table saw because he knows how to use the circular saw better.

After that, we were finally ready to cut! We started by measuring out the 22″ piece that we needed, then added an additional 1 1/2″ to that to put our straight edge (the extra 1 1/2″ is the distance between the straight edge and the blade).

Here we go on the first cut!

D1-5

One cut down, many more to go!

D1-6

Now, I would show you more pictures, except about halfway through the second 22″ cut, the power went out. This was when we learned the hard way that the garage, the kitchen lights, and the upstairs bathroom are ALL on a 15 amp breaker. Guess we will have to figure something out here!
