    Garage temperature control

    Or put your meat freezer in the garage and let the refrigerant coils heat a storage shelf/cabinet.

    I love this book

    Thanks for the reviews and suggestions! I'll for sure pick up Mike P's book - after I finish R. Bruce Hoadley's "Understanding Wood".

    Sad Storry to Share

    I've been bit by springs. Recently an acquaintance lost a thumb (it's been re-attached successfully) from a garage door spring. As a teenager I nearly lost a finger from a lawn mower with a spring loaded starter.

    A Roubo from beams?

    So you're saying that it can't be thinner or thicker than 4". I get it.

    First Guild Project Recommendation

    Don't know that it was a "Guild" project, but I enjoyed building Marc's "Not so rustic table" for our back deck. I found it well within reach and my wife loves it.

    Just checking, did you mean to say "lower" limit?

    Another Roubo...

    Coming from your neck of the woods, I expect you play a higher level of hockey than I do. I once drove from Minneapolis to Duluth in late November, and saw probably hundreds of playgrounds being flooded for ice rinks. Very impressive. Back to roubo's....

    Nice to see someone else with hockey sticks (and tree branches) in their shop! Nice bandsaw, too. ;-)

    I hope your friend does well. Your story refreshes one of my paranoid concerns! I leave every power tool, other than the dust collector, unplugged when not in use. I try to leave the plugs where I can visibly see that they are unplugged.

    Half Moon Bowl

    I really like how turning shows off wood figure, and sometimes enhances it. Does anything do it better?

    Air Plant Holders

    Very cool; I'd like to mimic your ideas. Are these plants epiphytes? They must need more than water, how to they obtain other nutrients?

    Indoor Herb Garden

    Love this thread. Looking forward to my own "herb" garden!

    Tennessee Curly Cherry

    That's a word play my dad would have been proud of. Did you do it or do we attribute it to spell check?

    Woodriver corner easing plane

    Thanks to Gee-Dub; I agree with the preference for the last example. For me, part of it at least is the smaller radius. [Edit: I should say that all the pieces look like fine work, the softer corners might be very toddler friendly!]

    Woodriver corner easing plane

    I use a block plane (or sand) as well. But I'm interested in Gee-Dub's comment about a "doughy" look.
