  1. IE if your blank is 10 inches, make the walls of the rough bowl 1 inch so you still have enough "meat" to get a round bowl when it dries because it isn't a question of if it warp, it is how much it will warp.
  2. Sounds more like a raft. Or a dinghy
  3. It isn't a huge difference with just the gray but I added a clear gloss top coat and that helped reflect more light around. Mostly, however, I just didn't want to be staring at bare concrete all day.
  4. Agree with Shep, definitely want to insulate and don't forget about the garage door. I just did the same in my basement, did 2x6 walls with R19, outlets every 4' and covered with drywall painted bright white. I also did a light gray epoxy on the floor to brighten that up and protect it a bit better but that would be a fair amount of work if you need to clean oil off of the concrete first. Another thought that you probably have already been planning on is, like clamps, you can never have enough lighting.
  5. Looks like you would be fine
  6. Maybe it's just me but my nervous would be asking permission to take every single step so I didn't touch a piece of floor he didn't want me to touch lol. I ran out of Wood Talk and started listening to Shop Talk and, while he does this quite often with everyone, Asa was extra irritating in the episode I listened to this morning. They had Brian Boggs on when he was the FWWLive keynote speaker and Asa was constantly talking all over and continually interrupting him. That was episode 38 and he doesn't leave his position till like ep95... sigh Sorry, derailed a bit, I love Nick Offerman, his books are great and I really like seeing how much he cares for the craft. Thanks, @TerryMcK, I had not seen the first video you posted yet
  7. I would like to go but can't swing it this year, class budget is still limited so I would rather spend the money on one large one than a bunch of few hour long ones. I was able to see Steve Latta do a demo locally on inlay/banding/sandshading/bell flowers for about 3 hours and I agree with you Shane, he is awesome (and super mellow)
  8. That 2011 video is exhibit #1 I can't stand Asa. Drives me crazy watching him put his hands all over the shop and using Nick's lumber as a footstool
  9. woodcraft has free shipping now too
  10. This is how I work, any time there is dust or fumes, I want that respirator on. I have the HF DC and really like it. The only issue I have had with it was nothing to do with the collector and everything to do with how I had it hooked to my HF lunchbox planer(don't design a system with the last leg going to the planer through a 2.5" pvc set up with leaky gates and tight curves).
  11. Haha, I think your work speaks for itself, I know it means less than nothing but I give you a free pass on this
  12. I liked Jay's video a lot because he was taking his own personal WR plane that he had spent the time tuning and compared it to a fresh out of the box LN. That said, I will still probably end up going with a LN 4 or 4.5 over the WR
  13. For the grip, I heard "That other Podcast" talking about adding hot dog handles for use on a shooting board. The link is a hot-to for a Veritas LA Jack but I am sure you can get one made up for the LA Smoother Hotdog for the LV LAJ1.html Just saw Eric above me, I don't have any plane that was worth more than $25 brand new in 2017 dollars but I fully plan on a No4 from LV/LN to be my first quality buy
  14. Brian, I watched most of it this morning while I was getting ready for work, really cool bench and I hope I can get back to it later today and finish it. You also realllllllllly have me wanting to make a saw and a shoulder plane. Don't tell James but I will be using power tools for that....
  15. How many I have: 12, plus a folding rule and a dozen other rulers How many I want: All of them.
