    Woodburning commission

    I don't think you can price artwork using time & materials as a guide. Well, you can but I don't think it's a good idea. For example, I purchased a nice 30"x30" woodburning of an old barn for $35.00. Conversely, I did a small carving of the Jaguar "Growler" Logo, posted it on a Jag forum and...

    Replacement windows

    That depends. Are you looking to replace Windows 10 or just upgrade from an older version? (Sorry, I've been working on my computer and am feeling a little silly!) :rolleyes:

    Finish Question

    My philosophy is "Don't make things any harder than they need to be". You have an easy answer there. Your wife would be happy. Go with it and leave the GF Poly for another day. I like to try new stuff too, but I do it first on a not so important project or simple test pieces. Just my opinion.

    Rikon Band Saw 18" 10-345 - $950 (Charlotte)

    I have the same saw. Pretty good overall if you need a big saw. But, adjusting the guides is a real PITA. The price is a bit high. They were $999 when new.

    Finishing poplar with dye and gel stain

    You might get a lot of opinions but the only way to know for sure is to make a few sample boards and try different methods and see what happens.

    I'm betting the answer is a big YES! No idea what it might be but if you're anything like me there's always "something"! ;)

    Some other projects

    The wood came from some sections of fence that was falling down. I just cleaned the crud off, ran it through the planer and added a little paint. Not fine woodworking. No real joinery. Just glued and screwed.

    Lost Art Press "The Anarchist's Workbench"

    Anything from Lost Art Press is always a good read. Reading the inside story of his $175 workbench was interesting to me. That was my first workbench build. Still using it as my main carving bench.
