    Buying a house is so frustrating!

    Thread Starter: Brian Elfert

    I'm trying to buy a house, but any decent inexpensive houses are selling like hotcakes. I was supposed to go look at a house with a 40x80 outbuilding tomorrow, but it sold already. (Priced at $199,000 and the building alone is probably $100,000 to replace.) There are quite literally zero houses...

    Our 'Brave New World' with Medical Profiling

    Thread Starter: Jim Koepke

    This is not my opinion, it is just sharing an article. The world we knew from five or six decades ago is changing faster than we ever knew. Actuaries predict your life span. Banks track your spending habits. Now, your employer can tell whether you’ll have diabetes a year from now. And the...

    Any experience with new Laguna 14/12 bandsaw?

    Thread Starter: Mike Suiter

    Wood preferences

    Thread Starter: Mike Cozad

    I am/have never been a fan of oak. I have exactly 3 pieces of oak furniture in my house. 1 I built in shop class when I was 11 and didn't know any better. In fact, the shop teacher let me pick white oak for the legs and aprons of the night stand and the drawer front and top are red oak. Other than...
