    I got a big RAS I dont really use and a table saw I use occasionally and the finest wood tools they ever invent being a cordless sawzall, circ, and battery drill for deck screws. I should get a compound miter and some kind of router set up and fixture the modest planer a bit more convenient,. A lot of cheap material and salvage with wood.

    The top is just the glued together planking that you an purchase from Home Depot or Lowes.
    It is actually 5/8" thick. I just ripped one inch wood , which is actually 3/4" thick, for the sides and the extension.

    I do prefer working with metal as opposed to wood.

    Wooden Step (No Welding)

    I built a wooden step to help my wife get into bed. After she tried it out, she decided that it needed to be higher so I added a 2” addition to the step. In addition to the extension, I also added an outrigger to stabilize it if you stepped on the edge of the step. I used biscuits to attach the extension to the original step, because it would be the most minimalistic method and still allow for some lateral adjustment during gluing.
