Good machinery is nice to have…. but fine wood
to built things from is heavenly.

I don’t know what you want to make, but you
know some fine hardwoods and a vacuum press
can really open up your imagination in ways more
capable cabinet making machinery won’t.

Juts food for thought… I spend way too much time
fussing with nice machinery and too little doing
actual exquisite woodworking. That’s because
I’m in a kind of feedback loop of justifying electrical
tools on the basis of how much time they will
save on production-style cabinet work.

I hope that makes sense. A nice bandsaw is a
more pleasurable and inspiring tool to use than
a good cabinet saw, imo.
