  1. I do like me some toast. Heard from Spanky lately?
  2. I can't see as you have a lot to lose. Give it a whirl , have some fun it might be the best thing since sliced bread.
  3. I will have a burger and Iced Tea when and if that meeting happens. I wonder where several of the guys from back then are talking now.
  4. I remember this argument back in the days of the great no-all Eric. After 35 years of masonry work I will continue to use my 5 inch festools as my destroyed thumbs don't need anymore to hang on to.
  5. That's a good looking unit. Do you know the brand or were you got it?
  6. It pops the figure/rays in the quartersawn. If you just use water base finish it comes out much flatter.
  7. Just finished this piece for a bathroom today. I use a color called Michaels Cherry Stain which is one of the stains the Amish all over the country use. Then I spray two coats of shellac and finish with General Finish High Performance. The Amish shop that built my doors for the house uses a catalyzed laquer over the same stain and gets a finish that is far superior to mine, I just haven't been brave enough to give it a try.
  8. Does the crock have handles or is smooth sided? A knob would look correct in my mind but a u shape would work if the crock has handles.
  9. The picture is from 2016 it has become a bit cluttered since then.
  10. Not sure about the pheasant crop as temps have been in the 60's and 70's since the opener. I have been working on clearing 14 acres of PINE, cedars locust and hedge in an effort to develop some bird habitat. No CHERRY trees were harmed in the dozing of ground. On a side note my bench is hard maple with a bit of walnut worked in and a base of ash.
  11. Wish we did, then mine would have more space because everything is bigger in Texas.
  12. Seems to me like you would get splinters with wooden pantys.
  13. Impressive, I can see all of both of your bench tops. Looking at mine it would seem that it is nothing but a pile of tools and scrap wood.

    Bet you can't even start to say no when she smiles like that.
  15. Are you accepting orders yet?
  16. Where did you pick up the kits from?
  17. I would not mind a few hundred bd. ft. of curly flat sawn with the quartersawn.
  18. Oh well, the search goes on.
  19. So how big is it? How big do you need to quartersaw?
  20. Looks pretty small from Iowa. 23 inches?
  21. I did get my sheet sandpaper from klingspor but will refrain from posting pictures so as to not create any sanding envy.
  22. I have a woodworking related delivery tomorrow also but it's sandpaper so the excitement is rather nonexistent.
