    Beginner lathe

    I found this to be helpful if not a little overwhelming - https://www.reddit.com/r/turning/wiki/index Also, check out the Turner's Corner subforum here, you might get better results.

    Shop Storage Shed

    I hate holiday decorations. They take up way too much room and time bringing it all out and setting it up. Nice work with the shed. Seems like its coming along well.

    Bessey Clamp Question

    Can you cut the 50" one down to 36" or 40"? Or swap them with someone else looking for longer clamps?

    Used lathe rant

    Agreed. But if you're trying to sell something that looks the same and its twice the cost, you better clarify what's better about it. When you add in shipping the Grizzly is almost twice as much as the Harbor Freight.

    Used lathe rant

    All the mini 10"x18" lathes appear to be the same.There are probably some differences between the electronics and or mechanical bits, but if you look closely the Harbor Freight, Grizzly, Wen, etc. ones all look the same with different paint jobs.

    Don't forget a face shield.

    Used lathe rant

    Agree on the app or a browser extension. So much stuff pops up and goes away before you realize. I got a lathe for Father's Day last year and have yet to complete a project. Life sure has gotten in the way, only had the tools for it for about a month before our 2nd was born. Maybe one day....

    Favorite turned legs?

    Boatloads of turned wooden legs here available for purchase. Might help with some inspiration. https://www.osbornewood.com/Coffee-Table-Legs.aspx

    Leveling bed for van

    They make these - https://www.etrailer.com/Wheel-Chocks/Blaylock-Industries/EZ-JACK.html Or I saw someone had an idea of using the trailer jacks to level the vehicle, but I think you could make it work for a mattress - https://www.harborfreight.com/1000-lb-swing-back-trailer-jack-41005.html

    Leveling bed for van

    I like the ceiling idea. What about inflatable airbags in the corners? Something like this? You could install an air compressor in the van. Might be helpful to have if you get a flat tire or need to run an air tool.

    New Shop, New Woodworker - Need advice please!

    Sorry, I missed you were getting a higher end dust collection. My experience with the Harbor Freight one is that there's lots of residual dust.

    New Shop, New Woodworker - Need advice please!

    Do you have a 2nd garage at the very top? How many cars could you fit in if you didn't have the shop and tractor in there? Maybe move the dust collector into the 'shop' area to help keep the cars cleaner?

    Morris Chair Pair

    Can't wait to see them finished with leather. I remember seeing that it can be quite expensive. How much floor space does one of these take up with the footstool?

    Morris Chair Pair

    I hate it when people do that. We've had 3 contractors out to get an estimate to redo our deck. 0 have gotten back to us.
