Re: Just when you think you have a nice shop....

That's not a shop it's a "showroom" or a setup for a convention.
A shop has actual work in progress, sawdust, wear and tear, glue on the bench tops, coffee cups 1/2 full, snicker bar wrappers, scrap...

Re: Hilti concrete saw and vac question.

Just rent the vac and the saw. It's a very messy project. I've rented the saws and vac from rental yards and they work just fine. It doesn't have to be Hilti either. Make sure they start the saw...

Re: Mr Maloof style Pedestal base, Glass Top

Nice work Okami,

I think Sam said black walnut was one of his favorite woods to work with. I sure do like it. I copied one of his templates for that pedestal on one of my visits to his shop...

Re: Has there been a more boring BCS Nat. championship??

Are you kidding? Wisconsin and Oregon was a shootout. I couldn't even go get a beer from the frig without missing a score. And, I'm still a cheesehead at heart. Can't comment on the other games...

Re: itty bitty planes

The violin is "in the white". It could be setup and played but I'm going to keep going and start the finish process. I finished the scroll and neck shaping, profiled the fingerboard and rough cut...

Re: planer recommendation for fir strips

Depending on how many pieces, you could use a card scrapper. I wouldn't use a power planner on wood that thin. A thickness drum sander works best. Card scrappers if kept sharp work well. Just...

Re: itty bitty planes

Peter,
