    Nice to see how wooden planes are done David. It's a style of work (relatively small item, high precision, lots of detail) that appeals to me - much more than say building more traditional cabinets....

    I guess the trouble starts when people sidestep reality to build one size fits all intellectual castles in the air - and then proceed to get attached to said castles and/or make commitments/build...

    Ta Mike. A quick look suggests that the same or similar machines pop up under different importer brand names. I guess the basic is whether there's any variety that is good/bad/rubbish beyond what the...

    A Rong Fu mill drill is definitely an option for serious consideration Mike, and they are available from Holland. There's lots that swear by them on the forums. I got a quote for a 45 about a year...

    Broadly +2 - but with some reservations. There's inevitably a learning curve involved - and it means that there's a time for most of us (if we haven't been in a position to learn from somebody) when...

    Your hinged cabinet door with built in shelving is a slightly smaller version of the sort of door format i have Derek. Stepping the racks in one pitch for each row is a nice move to save space. I...
