  • I think I need help.

    Seriously, I think I have a problem. The obsessive compulsive nature runs in our family and I know mine is with woodworking. Especially when it comes to lumber itself. I might have more boards in my shop then some lumber yards. When I go to our local lumber yard, I might be going for a couple of boards of white oak. But I leave with the white oak, and 7 other boards that I could not pass up because of their beauty.
    When I get down to say 3 gross of FD blades I have to order like 5 more gross.
    After I received the last order from Mike, I counted how many blades I have here.
    1450 blades of just my favorites, FD Polar #5's.
    This hobby has become my addiction, passion, escape, and great joy all rolled into 1.
    Anyone else have this problem? I doubt I am alone with this.

      Care to elaborate Janette?

      Obviously I have been this way for a long time. It did not happen overnight.
      I guess I am just accepting it more now. I had been in DeNile for a long time.

        OC behavior? What OC behavior? I call it being frugal. I even keep small scraps of thin plywood, about 3" x 3" and use them for ornaments when I get a chance. Forget about the larger boards. If I even mention that I am going to the lumber yard or that I am running low (down to my last two or three) on some thin stock and need to order some, my wife has a canary. I then have to cut something just for her.

        A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

          As long as your not offered a spot on the TV show Hoarders, you're good.

              Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
              by cwmagee
              A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
              That is...

              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
