Default Why a guy needs a big saw.

Well I am putting my saw to work on a pair of new rockers. This sure makes cutting down big stock easy. I had to get my wife to help load the slider. After I clamped the slabs down I was able to stand back at the end of the slider and just push, pretty cool. The Slab is 7 1/2'x19"x2 1/4". Heavy.

Wow again! Your shop is about the size of my whole house!

I'm looking forward to your rocker build. I hope you'll keep us posted!

according to my robotic vacuum cleaner, my house is about 1000 sq ft - so not a lot larger!

Nice, man. I loved my Felder. Probably never have the space for one again. Enjoy yourself!

Cricket,

I was thinking of you last night, I think I need to build some filling shelves for my outrigger like I saw in your photos.
