    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.

    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?

    That's more than misleading. I'm not a Consumer Affairs Lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that is illegal by California statutes, not sure about your

    Is Grizzly Ad Misleading?
