Made a portable/collapsible table for my miter saw

Made it so that my miter saw will be level to the third step of this ladder that I use like a horse for my circular saw cuts.

Now I don't have to crawl on the ground to use this saw.

Disrupting the sawhorse industry since 2019... No big deal.

Waiting on a shipment of decking and rails to get delivered. This thing is really going to come in handy. The decking is all 16ft boards.

- Hey, Pen. How did you learn to do wood-work?
Course, someone teached you or learned alone?

Mostly self taught. Intuitive I guess. Like I see something and think it'll work. Usually it does, but sometimes it doesn't.

I actually got lucky on this one. I bought a 2 ft x 4 ft section of plywood and had them cut 12 inches off at the store because aesthetically, it seemed like the size that I wanted. When I sat down to try to figure out the collapsible legs, I realized that I wouldn't be able to bolt the saw on the way that I wanted to (facing the side), and I wasn't sure that it would fit the other way (facing the handle) because that wasn't what I had originally envisioned. Luckily, it did... just barely.

It will be more functional this way as well... again, luckily. When I break the table down and build it up, It tripods on the saw arm in a way that is symmetric and doesnt damage the saw or the table. If I did it the way that I thought originally, I'd be less happy with how the whole thing works.

But I also learned from people on jobs. Picked stuff up and whatnot.
