    Bench Base

    Did you use a 1/2" cove to get those recessed details? I really really like that. Looks great! As do I, but my manners, customs and courtesies were drilled into me.

    Air Compressor

    California Air Tools 5510SE is the way to go in my opinion, I've had it for some time now. Works great, doesn't cycle constantly, pretty portable, a tad heavy with the steel tank that I got, they do have an aluminum tank that is lighter, but when I got mine there was a $80 difference in price. But take it all with a grain of salt as everyone has their own opinions.

    What Nail Gun??

    I have a Porter Cable framing nailer, a Hitachi 16g finish nailer, Bostich 18g brad nailer, and a Porter Cable 23g pin nailer. I love them all equally.

    Water Jet and Wood

    This is the waterjet I run, I've cut plenty of wood on it, mainly to use for fixturing weird parts, making templates, or just messing around. Mostly plywood and OSB. My experience is to not use the abrasive and do a water only cut and it should be fine. Haven't tried dimensioned lumber yet but it should be a similar situation. As for the taper, it depends on the machine. Here we have an extra 2 axes on our Z axis, meaning it can rotate on the Z as well as pivot on the Z. So I can cut bevels, tapers, and all sorts of crazy geometry right from the waterjet. Being that we have this head assembly, there is a function in the software to compensate for the taper to make a perfectly 90 degree cut, provided no common line cutting is performed.

    5-axis milling machine

    http://www.cnczone.com/ Forum for all things CNC, you'll have better luck asking this question there as they are all about CNC.

    hearing protection

    I use these from Surefire, for everyday use and use at work with the CNC's. I wear them under these for when things get really loud.

    Knobs! Glorious knobs!

    Picked them all up at auction for cheap when a cabinet maker downsized their shop. Not pictured are 4 more 1000 count boxes of each size.

    Planer replaced

    I've been on the market for one a DW735 for a bit now, and have been trolling the usual places. The lowest price I've seen for a very heavily used one was $50 off retail pricing. The highest was $70 above retail for a "gently used" one, with 3 "gently gouged" blades, and a completely destroyed exhaust shroud...
