Meet Frankensaw, my home-made table saw.  It’s made out of a circular saw mounted upside down to a basic table structure.  

I had to use a cable tie to hold the ‘on’ switch on the saw so it’s on all the time, and got a switchable socket (bought from Clas Ohlson) to turn it on and off at the socket - safer than plugging and unplugging all the time.  

In the video you’ll also see my simple home-made ripping jig and cross cutting jig. 

The table top is melamine board donated by a friend and the base is solid wood - scraps found in my shed.

After lots of precise measuring, it actually cuts really accurately and it’s great to be able to finally do decent rip cuts!
