    Poplar: worth selling or milling?

    I just had a large poplar cut down and am curious if it is worth selling or having cut into boards. I didn't measure it yet, but it's got a nice straight trunk with no knots for at least 16 to 20 feet. Would make some nice timber, but I have no idea how to proceed. I'm located in central NC...

    Another struggle for me. A friend is remodeling an older home from studs out, adding a huge addition, replacing HW floors, roof - the works.

    Is any drill worth $575?

    I just got my new McFeely's catalog and I love browsing the fasteners and often placing an order. I am always amazed, though, by the expensive Festool stuff. I mean, are any of you guys spending $575 on a drill?!?! I use corded drills from Harbor Freight which I bought for under $20 each...

    Worth the effort???

    The bottoms of the large shutters on my house have quite a bit of rot from water bouncing up from the patio. The shutters are over 8 feet tall and the bottom 30 inches are raised panel. They are made of 1 1/2" redwood and have been in place over 20 year. Most of the louvers are in decent shape...

    Worth of used equipment

    Does anyone know of a good way to determine the original price of a used shop machine? When shopping for used equipment I like to use half of original retail as a starting point and may go up or down in what I am willing to pay based on condition. This system breaks down when applied to older...

    Worth the $950 Price Tag ?

    http://raleigh.craigslist.org/tls/2214387055.html I'm looking of for a bigger table saw and this was on Craigslist. I talked with the guy and he's flexible with the price. I see newer models for only a couple hundred more... Is it work that price tag or what would be a more reasonable price...

    RBI 214-BT, What's it Worth?

    First, let me say I know less about scrolling than I do about turning. And I am like Sargent Schultz when it comes to turning- "I know nothing." So I need to determine what I should give for a RBI Hawk 214-BT scroll saw. From what I read, this is a desirable saw, is it? Ten bucks, two hundred...

    Took a While, but worth it

    I've had this project to attempt in my head for quite a while, but long days at work and irregular days off have really slowed me down. Now I can say, I finally had a chance to bring it to fruition. Vase is Walnut and spalted White Oak, the bands in the collar are some Maple I saved from a...

    Worth Wood group in Charlotte

    I am not familiar with this company and they were recommended to me today. I live about 70 miles south of Charlotte. Any purchase would be small as I do woodworking as a hobby. Would they be a good source for wood? Any comment would be appreciated. Thank you, Herb

    Worth it? Ridgid planer...

    Is this worth it? http://charlotte.craigslist.org/tls/1562126023.html I've been looking to upgrade from my AP10, but I've seen the same model (with newer color scheme) at the recon store for about $160. I'm going to keep looking, but I thought that $200 was a little high, you?

    Found an Axe, worth the cash?

    In an undisclosed location, I found what I suspect to be a good broad hewing hatchet? Its a right hand (flat face on left), about 12" edge. No serious pitting. Can't find evidence of abuse or cracking. Lastly, if I rap the edge, it rings quite nice. I have learned about the dull...
