    ...the more elaborate the more fear that is invoked...remember...I'm a firm believer, that, fear is a wonderful motivator.

    What makes you think, that, I don't like pain? "Give and ye shall receive"...receive and you shall get!

    Ha! You never met Sister Theresa or Sister Virginella! You DIDN'T have the market cornered on Devil Spawn, trust me!

    Never bothered me before...Sister Mary Penguin tried that and failed! You think you can do any better?
  10. "...a router"! Ah, grasshopper, have you never heard the saying "you can never have too many clamps"? Well, having "a router" is like owning only one clamp.
  11. That's an awful lot of pine...what's the planned use?
  12. I think that it is an individual choice. Like Gene I am a hybrid woodworker. However, I lean more towards the traditionalist side of the discussion. I can reach for a hand tool and do an operation and get an end result. Sometimes quicker than setting up a machine and performing the operation. I don't mind using hand planes or chisels. Others may not be physically able or mentally inclined to do so...but guess what? I own a thickness planer and a jointer, also. I even have a shaper tucked into the corner if needed. Try and steal my table saw and you might leave in a horizontal position. As for CNC's, well, I'm a little on the controversial side. I see some beautiful and talented, imaginative, results from some people, but I don't personally consider a CNC real woodworking. Again, the traditionalist side. To each his own, if you can't carve, then CNC is the way to go. On the other hand, there are some great uses for a CNC; creating complex components, cutting circles, etc. I see CNC as creating a computer program, not making something with your hands. Just because you own a self driving car, doesn't mean you are a competent driver/operator. With all of that said, CNC are here, do have their place, and can be useful. I just don't see one in my shop anytime soon.
  13. GOOD for you...color me green! I wish all of us could do that and put a hurt on them. The whole thing would stop real quick, well, all except the Jamaicans, apparently, we can't touch them.
  14. Now, Richard, that is just downright mean. Why do you want to treat Stick like that? Now he's gonna be all wound up! In addition, you just made me a little homesick for my childhood home. One of my favorite memories was the snow covered Blue Spruce outside my bedroom window.
