If you're a true do-it-yourself gal and don't already own one, the miter saw may be just what you need to help you complete countless wedding projects like these:
- Make an easy ceremony structure to support vines or flowers -- all it takes are pine planks (cut to size with a miter saw), a hammer, and some nails. After the wedding, use the structure as an arbor in your garden.
- Construct painted wooden signs or plaques pointing the way to your ceremony site or reception.
- Build simple wooden planters to house flowers in your wedding's color palette.
Don't be afraid of the hardware store and good equipment. Just make sure you use it properly and wear eye protection!
