i guess i was 9 when we moved across the street from Pop's
a retired german pipefitter who enjoyed life and tools both of which he used to create things or ideals. countless hours id spend working on a bike or cart mabey even just watching him thread the obsure pipe for what seemed for no other reason than to be set of to the side of the vise still to be there two months later...... but as far as sharing with me the love of a good hand tool man i got that lesson ...
all for which seemed to be laying in wait untill i got old enough to slow down and BAM there was Wood and there is so much of it! so what if i made a mistake ,grab another piece and go at it again .how cool is that
well i aint telling you guys nothin .... this is one more cool site
i started my shop 10 yrs ago converting a goat barn into home for a radial arm saw and a beat up craftsman contractors portable table saw that you had to pull of the front and back of the blade to ensure the fence was straight for every set oh those were the days ....
well all i can say is that im hooked..... my tools are more trustwothy and much more in number and ive found out i have an allergic reaction to to african mohogany ... life's pretty good

Happy New Year to you.

Was thinking for a while what to say.
You seems to be upset, on my coments, well you should not.
During my own life and work experience, much less then yours at least in time, I have realized that the wood could be more presious then a life. Just think about it – how many years would it take to grow for example that wulnut tree that you made a table from? At least a half of a human life man. Keeping in mind that the parten of the grain is unique and almost unrepeatable. Now you have sawen it in a few days probably using less working time as possible. Other wise you can not make a profit from sale.
If you can not do best of it – leave it man, let others use it for the better result do not waist it. I am sorry but in that case you should not use it at all becose you did not released its best potential, so you just selling the natural resorses.
Do not do this man, go for plastick then you might do much better with less harm to the nature and get more respect from designers.
No afence what so ever, I am not a dificult person just can not stand when someone neglecting great material.
