    Tall Stand-up Workbench $250

    Don’t think I can afford it at this point...but I think I am going to steal the design. I love the removable center piece. As well as the over hang for clamping. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Need Jointer and Planer

    Depending on your location sometimes there are ‘shared’ workspaces that have all the essential big power tools covered. When I was at NCSU I would user their Arts&Craft center. There I would mill most of my lumber and then just do the assembly at home. Now that I’m in Greensboro I found the...

    Help with air drying holly

    Recently I’ve acquired a large(ish) holly stump that I’d like to use for turning, carving, inlays, etc. Attached is a photo of the gnarly beast. I know very little about air drying wood, other then you put it in a corner of your shop and forget about it until you trip over it looking for...

    Carpentry Compiler

    I’ll have to look at it again, but I don’t think they take into account blade ware and machine maintenance. While minimal at first, it does add up over time. It would also be interesting to compare hand tools vs. power tools (i.e. Roy vs. Norm).

    Matthias Wandel's Workshop Cost

    Not to hijack this thread...but my favorite videos of his are where he evaluates ‘high end’ equipment and shows that the cheap stuff is actually better. It would be worth comparing a shop like his verse something like a sponsored shop (e.g. The Wood Whisperer, Marc Spagnuolo) and/or a...

    Auction Sale

    Sarcasm does not come across very well in forms. There is a lot of nice equipment in the auction and I was trying to deter folks from looking any further. Hopefully those bar clamps are not 3 phase.

    Christmas gift ideas for the woodworker

    Shop time. My #1 gift is always shop time. No matter what my family thinks I need, I always ask to be able to spend more time in the shop. They are more than happy to join me there. But time in the shop is time in the shop.
