Improvise, adapt and overcome. Pounded into me as a young troop. Story of my life ever since.

I do woodworking as my day job and don’t have a lot of extra cash laying around for fancy tools. I’m certainly not poor and I’ve purchased a few nice tools over the years. But, I don’t have racks of high dollar stuff, nor do I have all the fancy tools I’d love to own. I’m just a woodworker trying to eke out a living.

But, I do see some guys making some fancy stuff with a lot less than I have!

The biggest improvements I’ve made in my work over the years hasn’t really come with buying a new tool… It’s come with paying more attention to accuracy and detail.
