    2nd Build (first) - CNC Router

    Thread Starter: David Falkner

    Building my 2nd CNC first, I hope. I have been researching for over a year, read a thousand threads and articles, and am hopefully building my 'second machine' for my first. There is still a ton to learn and that process will probably never stop. Of this I am certain, I will be in new territory...

    The recent post regarding Woodsmith, got me to thinking about how handmade is defined. Apparently, it's open to great interpretation, although occassionally challenged by the FTC. Below is just one snip of info. This has apparently been an issue with Esty for sometime. Recently they revised...

    Barber Shop...Do You Use a Real Barber?

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I am still old school and only go to someone with a "barber" certificate which is different than a beautician where I live. Recently, I have started "scheduling" appointments so I don't wait in line. I miss the good old days in military barber shops when it was first come, first served.... How many...

    Leaving the machinery business...

    Thread Starter: Erik Loza

    Friends, I was recently offered a position with company in a different segment of the wood industry (not a machinery competitor) and will no longer be representing Minimax or SCM Group. This all happened rather suddenly but the upshot is that it will put me in a position to help grow a brand in a...

    Building a J-Class Sailboat

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    While waiting for the egg to hatch (buying a house) I've found myself lost without having something to create. So I decided to build a sailboat. It's going to be a replica of this, except how it looked when first built in 1934: J-Class Endeavour Length - 39.56m / 130ft Beam - 6.80m / 22ft...

    Is Grizzly Ad Misleading?

    The second look leads me into the 100% misleading camp, there is no delineation between the pictures of the specific items and the notice of sale. The

    Is Grizzly Ad Misleading?

    Yes, the ad is a bit misleading, considering that they are showing a Dewalt planer in the ad. I have never been disappointed in Grizzly customer service

    Small cedar box with inlay in hinged lid

    Nice work. The petals are silky and I like the way they drape on one side. The latch is too ordinary and overly detailed for such an exuberant modern
