- Thank you to the following contributors:
- Breaking News:
- Nick – Water heater – desk
- April – Finished lathe stand, designing outdoor shower and folding outfeed table
- Jay – Finished a new clamp rack. Like most other shop improvmeents, I should have done it sooner. Preparing for WIA and Michigan trip
- Submitted Questions:
- Greg – I am on the fence as to whether or not to buy a band saw. It seems like most of the stuff that you can do with one can be done with table saw, circular saw, or jigsaw. What are the pluses and minuses to a band saw?
- Keith Crawford – what type of Epoxy do you guys use/prefer? Either to adhere things, or to fill cracks.
- Ainslee from Australia – How do you deal with neighbors and noise? Do you worry you are annoying people?
- eifelpfeil – Have there been projects, let’s say in the last year, you wanted to do, but did not dare to? Greetings from Germany.
- patrickjerome – With family life and shift work life I get limited shop time so tend to rush projects. Does this happen to you? And what do you do to stop rushing?
- sirguido1 – Favorite non woodworking hobby?
- thedanhelfgott – How much of your woodworking skills are classroom/mentor taught vs. self taught vs YouTube taught? @jaybates86 (But I also want to know whether you’ll go with cheapo pine or $$$ cherry for the arm-war…)
- Graham Howe – I was recently inspired by Jay’s idea for a computer armoire. I designed my own version in Sketchup and then started to work out the price for a solid cherry and cherry ply build. It came out at about $1500 in materials, the reality is that to buy a piece like this would probably be over $5000, but I am struggling with the cost. Why is it that as woodworkers we seem to find it far easier to spend lots of money on tools (when cheaper options are definitely available) and yet balk at spending money on decent quality materials?
