  1. Excellent job! I have some grand kids that would love this.
  2. I'm curious as to how a twenty foot tall tree can be be a big threat to someone's house. I mean the trunk can't be very big. Just my 2cents worth.
  3. You might offer to meet them half way, so long as they covered your expenses. With that being said, if you COULD find a freight company to ship your two boxes, it would probably be cheaper for your client and a lot less trouble for you. I would imagine you'd have to build a plywood crate for each chair to insure that your chairs arrived in the best condition. That's a consideration that you'd have to figure into your price. I don't really see how it could be cost effective for your client. It's a great compliment to you that she's wanting to have you build the chairs for her.
  4. Yes, I too would like to see a picture of what you are wanting.
  5. Ken, if I had one I'd just give it to you. Alas, I don't own one.
  6. Excellent projects! Welcome to the forum!
  7. Nice video as always. I like the saw. I really like the large round shutoff button. It should be real easy to find quickly when the occasion arises!
  8. Another great video! Very well done! And as always, very much appreciated.
  9. Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

    Shop Tour

    Thanks for the tour, Kev. You have a great looking shop!
  11. I think the bowl looks great! I have no problems with the proportions. Good job!
  12. Welcome to the forum, Jim. Some mighty nice folks here.
  13. I agree with Richard. I've read it can be cut with a circular saw. jig saw or hand saw but I'd think dust would be a major concern not to mention the damage done to the saw blade. I'd also use a razor knife.
  14. That is one beautiful table. Great job! Truly a project to be proud of!
  15. Looks great! You chose some beautiful cherry. Thank you for doing a journal for us to see.
  16. Excellent job on the inlay. Cherry is my favorite wood. I also like the curved front top. Very nice piece!
  17. I'm really digging the design. Love the wood choice.
  18. In my shop the machine that gives me the most concern is the jointer. Running the board across the cutters time after time draws me into a false sense of security. I've even caught myself looking out the widow as I'm making a pass across the blades with a board. You all are going to laugh, but the tool in my shop that has caused me the most damage is the cardboard box cutter. I box and ship wood almost daily and use a box cutter when boxing up wood for shipment. I've cut fingers more times than I can count and have stabbed myself in the stomach twice when the blade slipped. It's another case of having done something so many times that my mind wanders and isn't always concentrating on what I'm doing.

    Safe Heater

    I believe an oil filled heater would work fine in your shop as there are no open flames.
  20. Are you still planning to post a video? I'd like to see it.
  21. Hello Art. Welcome to the forum! You said the wood needs to be durable. Where will it be used?
  22. Rick, just a note to let you know that you are still in my prayers. I can't imagine the pain you are going through but I pray that each day it gets easier for you to replace the sadness with happy memories.
  23. I'm too old to understand your question.....
