  8. i have actualy been waiting for about 2 years but havent found one i like i have gotten my planer and bandsaw of their but what i really watch "hard" is the lumber i have found great deals on that section
  9. should i buy this jointer on craigslist? http://cleveland.craigslist.org/tls/2209236397.html have you ever seen the brand? are the reputable if so? thanks,mike
  10. thanks for all the replies i just to the job on today and she gave me at least 4,000 worth of small remodeling work to do also wich involves striping wall paper drywalling some tile work painting and 2 more custome cabs for the bedroom so i think i will finally be adding to my festool and lie-nielsen collection
  11. im fifteen and ive been in the process of starting a pretty sucsesful wwing buisness and ive been noticing when my blog gets hits or when i recomendations from previous coustomers they think that because i am so young that either i will be rediculously cheap or i will not know what im doing i charge a standerdized shop fee of 25 dollars and hour plus materials but i always try to give a rough quote (ive had to eat a price underestimate on one or two jobs)i am wondering if other people get the same problem of clients wanting somthing really cheap right now i am doing two walnut counter tops in a high class area i gave a rough quote of 1,800-2,000 dollars the tops are going to be 8/4 thick and one is going to be 116 1/2" long by 25" wide with a bump out on the end of 12' by 26" and an island of 46" by 48" and the lumber will cost about 600 dollars thats 70 brd feet so my question is do you think 1,200-1,400 is enough to make profit wise on this product i'd apreciate any advise you could give me on ways to incresse profit and/or customer satisfaction btw sorry for such a long winded post
  12. im in a bubinga phase right now but usually its black walnut or mahogany but ill use whatever i have in the racks
