It really depends on what you do, and where you do it... It's easy to spend money in Fort Collins. But, there are plenty of other areas to live in. Wellington, for instance has very reasonable prices for property and is only 15 minutes away from FC. Fort Collins is roughly double in cost... But, there are many more things to do. (better restaurants, shopping, overall better atmosphere) So, we will be living in Fort Collins for the next year. We will be building a house somewhere... Decided to rent for the first year to get an idea of what is around, and where the best place to put down roots will be. Likely Fort Collins, or Wellington depending on what happens in the next 6 months with a variety of other things. Schools are very important to us at the moment. We'll see...
Yeah I'm with Mark, I don't use it either. I try not to make a huge mess during glue-ups in the first place, and if I do I just pop the glue off my assembly table with a putty knife after it dries a bit. That's why we put finish on our assembly tables.
Looking good, GarT.
You could put a magnet at both top and bottom of the doors, yeah? Either way I think the placement of the pulls is moot in the context of magnets and I'd do whatever looks best.
You're doing a great job on this, Ross...I've been silent but following along. Now finish the damn thing up so we can get a look at it, jeez. You work slower than I do.
I dont use wax or parchment paper anymore..Its just as eazy for me set plywood on the bench for my glue ups and takes no time to get the glue off the ply after ..I also like the plywood because all I have is pipe clamps and you need to hammer the crap out of the pannel useing a block of wood next to the clap just to get the darn thing flat...OH..No smokes today..........Gary,,The tops are looking great..
That never stopped me before.
I think most woodworkers with curiosity end up with a hodge-podge of styles in their houses. I know my decor makes absolutely no sense. Everything looks good to me, but there's no rhyme or reason for anything. I build whatever floats my boat that week. If people don't like it, they can let the door hit 'em in the ass on their way out.
