New to woodworking. My husband bought a sliding miter for me as a 20th anniversary gift in 2014 (which I used to install laminate flooring in two rooms) and then a table saw for Valentine's day 2015 Have enjoyed learning the "how to" of various tools and techniques thanks to many folks on youtube. Have made some furniture items (e.g., tv stand, storage/seat for mudroom, cabinet) as well as small gifts (e.g., boxes, jewelry boxes). Always looking to learn more!

Thanks – how do I post a question in the forum section (there was a notice that there was an approval needed for my first post before I can post anything new)? My husband and I are considering adding a lathe to our shop. Looking for insights on the features that are key to safety and performance (while keeping the budget in mind – don’t have thousands to invest).

Have your say...
