You don't need a compound saw. Why don't you just build it?
Thank you for your reply. I am with you on that; Just do it! The main reason I haven't started on it is we have been faced with increasing responsibilities for caring for older relatives. Dad had been taking care of Mom since she got out of an extended stay in the hospital in the winter. This past week Dad was in the hospital briefly, and realized he isn't up to doing as much as he had been. My mother-in-law lives down the road, and I have an aunt in assisted living, but I am her power of attorney, etc.
On to the saw. I thought maybe the saw would make it quicker, easier, and more accurate in making cuts. Maybe I should just rent one for a day, just to see if that is really true. I think with outdoor work too, it will be fall until I get at it. I do have some more track lighting I want to install while I still have an open floor below.
