    Dueane, I think what drew some of the commentary here was your reference to $12,000 and the title of your thread. "Wealthy" is a relative thing, right? You have roughly $7000 in power tools, which is...

    That sounds like a good decision Zelma. I think folks here just wanted you and James to stay safe.
    Tell James we'd love to see pictures as his new shop is being built/outfitted!

    With luck, Jim Koepke will weigh in. IIRC, he sometimes makes potting benches and sells them.

    I'm getting a tad bored and have been thinking about ways to embellish simple pieces. Earlier today, I was reading old issues of FWW and came across an article on Marquetry.
