I built this for a customer who didn't like all the brick, or the skimpy mantel shelf. The transformation was pretty dramatic
Hate to say it, but Hitachi tools are not what they used to be. I have the older 10" chop saw that is nice and portable, been beat up but still works and is accurate. Looked at the newer version and it is cheap and flimsy. Also costs less, so I guess in this case you get what you pay for, but it's getting harder to find good quality at a reasonable price (not super cheap, and not Festool either)
