Arrow RV Storage Boxes & Desk Seat



I filled-in most of the storage boxes in the 'garage' of my van. They are all open boxes with inter-locking bottoms, except for the top box, which receives a top lid. This Formica-finished top lid has three functions: as a top lid of course, as an extension of the kitchen countertop and as a worktop placed on a imperfect picnic table.
The Desk Seat is a simple cover over the foldup workbench, which hides it from view. A bright red cushion will be added later.

Good Heavens, I’m glad you’ve still got fingers. I would never condone some of your tablesaw techniques.

Your results look great, though.

I may not disagree with you. Somewhat in my defense, I work alone and usually just an hour or so at a time. As soon as I start loosing focus, I stop.

Great project, thank you for sharing. I quivered seeing your hand so close to the blade, I am not a professional user of a table saw and perhaps my imagination is unjustifiable. Table saw safety tools are not very expensive.

I already addressed the concerns. I should use a splitter, but removed the blade cover for the camera use. And I keep the blade always very low.
That said, I'm glad we both agree with the results

Actually, I think you should remove that part of the video. Not everybody will recognize how dangerous that is and someone could get seriously hurt because they copied you.
