    Got my 2nd shot yesterday. I feel like i got hit by a freight train.

    Yep that’s the way my wife felt for about a day and a half, me hardly any effect, I think it’s because I have a lot more mass than she does :D

    These made my wife a very happy mother this morning.

    well that's our goal isn't it, to make our wives happy and its a great goal ! those came out great. my wife has a favorite thing that i made for her and its not the one i would have picked as the best thing but she's happy with all the things I've made for her over the last 45 years so i can't complain

    @treeslayer Love this project. About how thick would you guess the spatula-type part is? I glued up a few blanks the other night. Hoping I can get 3 good ones out of them before Mother's Day.

    I try to keep them about 1/4” thick off the bandsaw so they end up a little less than that, width is 1 3/4” for the wide ones I make and 1 1/2” for the narrow ones but that depends on the wood I’m using, would love to see some pictures of yours when they are done.

  4. Never thought much about YouTube @Coop until I had to change a headlight bulb in the daughters car, it would still be burnt out if I didn’t look it up, the people that designed some of this stuff never had to repair it

  5. Completely agree with @Tom Kingi love my Leigh but the settings must be right, watch the videos several times, boards correctly milled for thickness and square, record your settings when you get one right and keep your test piece for reference when you get on to it it’s a great tool IMO, I use mine for all kinds of joinery
