    Self-driving cars--seriously?

    Thread Starter: Kev Williams

    I'm perfectly fine with self-braking cars, and self-parking cars, but I for one DO NOT want to share any roadway whatsoever with a self-DRIVING car. I'm worried enough about driving next to human-driven cars, especially when on one of my bikes. At least humans can usually hear HORNS. I...

    poplar for workbench?

    Thread Starter: Billy Dodd

    I came across some 12/4 poplar and was wondering if it would be strong enough for a workbench. I know it's not maple, but around here hard maple seems hard to come by. Billy
