  2. Nice looking unit. Are they old joists you used?

  12. MKRM27 says:

    I could argue that a mitre saw is a basic tool; a table saw is definitely not a basic tool.

    hahaha I was expecting hand held tools.

  16. Michael Day says:

    I have never built anything before but this seems like something i would want to try. Since i'm a novice should i probably just use standard construction wood? Also if someone could tell me what kind of saw i need as well as what kind of power sander is required. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
