    Time for some levity

    Thread Starter: Dave Anderson NH

    With all of the negativity and political stuff going on with the Covid-19 virus it is time to look at the humorous side of things. Feel free to add more, but keep it clean or it will be deleted.

    Those proud of their workshops, please post pics!

    Thread Starter: Matt Lau

    I'll finally be non-nomadic, and I'd like to finally build up a workshop. Before I get started, I'd love to get ideas. I'd love to see how you do things, and how you do things differently with all the disciplines here: tuners, neanders, power tool users, festoolies, etc. For those of you who...

    Thread Starter: Andrew Pitonyak

    I ordered a shiny new Large Veritas router plane with a fence and a few blades. Any pointers to a build thread or pictures of how you store your router plane? I know that Steve has a detailed build for his. In my mind, Derek had something as well, I should go look for that. I might as well...

    Saw advice

    Thread Starter: Blake M Williams

    Driver bit organizer (portable)

    Thread Starter: andrew whicker

    Seemed like this would be a simple thing.. just need an empty case with empty slots, etc to store bits. Bosch almost does this. They sell an empty case, but they don't sell empty slots to hold your bits. As with most of you, I have a million billion bits already and don't need to buy more. ...

    I have to give the USPS some credit for dealing with this Covid chaos. I think they’ve done a pretty decent job given the increase in online deliveries, holding mail for thousands of closed businesses, all with reduced staff. Occasionally, though, things do go a bit awry. I have one package I...

    I have a Rigid 12" miter saw that I have had for about 15 years. It has served me well but the motor/blade break stopped working. An online search

    Douglas Fir cutting board?

    Thanks for all the good input. I'll probably go ahead and make one and see how it turns out. There's one factor I didn't mention which, as I think about

    6" Schedule 20 PVC

    My plumber gave me a recommendation of a local building supply that he is 100% positive stocks it. A few hours later it was reported that three employees

    Restoring Flood Damaged Equipment

    Unfortunately, none of the damage in this case is covered by insurance.

    Good point to be cautious about heath risks from untreated sewage

    scm Nova 520 jointer

    It is almost easier to find a used 24" jointer than a 20". They were a rare size compared to a 16". I see a SAC every once in a while
