    Certainly understand your point regarding the lowest bidder. For what it’s worth, I accepted the bid as is...no negotiation, and it wasn’t the lowest.

    Thanks all. Makes me feel at least that what I’m seeing is fairly “normal”....comforting in a disappointing sort of way. Was prepping for the punch list and came across this one. Can’t blame him...

    The use of hand tools is both enjoyable and for me a necessity, given a very small shop. So I live in the continuum of “a means to an end”, and “it’s the journey, not the destination”. Probably...

    Congrats Chris, nice find. It’s worth taking the time initially to get it set up...much less frustration in use. I like your sharpening set up...as you said, not pretty, but works and that’s what...

    Nice build, Ken. I appreciate the slab glue up. Haven’t done many, but do the same as you. Glue the straightest first, then add from there. To speed things up, I let the first two sit in clamps...

    I think it is possible that neanders (prior to power tools) who worked wood for a living may not have necessarily liked the tools, just used them because there was no alternative. It’s obvious that...

    Depending on the amount, I just brush it onto a piece of cardboard or newspaper, let it dry, then toss in the trash.

    Really nice, Brett. Yes, some of the organizational furniture we have come to enjoy are no longer readily available. Well thought out design. Those youngins don’t know what they are missing.

    Thanks for the follow along, Pete. It appears you’re building a two-piece rod, correct? Curious about one thing...how do you go about straightening?

    Looks like a fabulous trout club.

    Thanks John. Was hoping you would offer some sage advice. It’s getting there...just a few sticky spots. I suspect by morning, it will be dry. That will make it about 48 hours on the second coat. ...

    Very nice, Dennis. There’s a skill to working “miniature”. Can be relaxing and sort of frustrating (at least for my eyes) at the same time. Really well done. Thanks for posting.

    Somebody needs to jump on these saws. I have a MA restored saw and have had Mike sharpen a few. Absolutely top notch. If you’re in the market for a saw...or upgrade...don’t hesitate on this offer.
