  • Re: My other art

    @some Yeah, i get it.  I don't know where you are located but here in the states there was once a master carpenter on public TV named Norm Abram and he had a show called the New Yankee Workshop.  I often said, as i watched him work, that if i had $100k worth of equipment and a 50x50 shop i could do that too.  Then i became a follower of Roy Underhill, also of PBS fame, who has a show called the Woodwrights Shop.  (all of this is on YouTube now).  Roy only works with hand tools.  Over the years i have developed a hybrid approach to save money.  I splurged on a table saw.  I have a Saw Stop, which saves my fingers.  The rest is all garage sale stuff which i cleaned and serviced and use.  I have one half of our two car garage as a shop.  I make it work.  Its like painting.  At some point you have to stop getting ready to paint and just paint.  I hope you make something soon.
