  1. Feels great to be working on a project instead of working on my shop. First one in a while - a simple harvest table for a neighbor. I can't wait until the overarm dust shroud (Grizzly) gets here. This saw makes some dust. Cutting mortises. Tapering the legs

  2. Say no more! This is obviously a critical situation and justification for replacing a worn out tool! You are doing this for others and not for self gratification!

  3. Well said! Welcome Harry! I would add that early in my woodworking journey I purchased tools well just becuase its what I thought I needed or I saw a review or becuase my friend had it, etc. Now I buy tools based on the upcoming project. I decide what I will be working on, whether I have the tool needed, if not do I have a tool that will work or is it time to purchase something. My ultimate goal is to build amazing things not collect tools, in my current flow that is just a happy by product

  4. Middle of converting 8 bi-fold doors and 12 interior doors from flat panel to 3 panel and my nailer is now leaking. Not sure if it's worth trying to fix or if I shouldn't just get a new one. Unless I go buy a new one I'm dead in the water until Monday when I can borrow my dad's.

  5. Yes, I steam bent kiln dried walnut, birch, maple, and exotics to make fishing nets. The strips were very thin so I had that going for me. Nonetheless I had to steam it for much longer than what is generally recommended on the internets. Some of my bends failed on the walnut so I steamed the devil out of it and it worked better.

  9. Dave at Engel's Coach Shop says you can bend kiln dried just fine and that's generally the only kind of wood he's able to get so that's what he uses and he's a pro at this.
