I bought a table saw finally! Buying stretcher bars gets expensive, plus I want to start painting on panels when I go outside.
Now I am in production mode creating panels for my Plein Air painting trips.
I bought a $120 Ryobi- it does the job. I bought a 4'x8' sheet of 1/8" masonite and cut twelve 16"x20 panels plus a few odd sizes. I oil primed all of them (3 coats with a roller). I then cut 2 of the panels in half to make a few 10"x 16"
This saved me a bunch of time by preparing them all at once. I can also build my own stretcher frames too!
