I went to and island off the coast of Cancun called Isla Mujeres earlier this month. I was walking the streets chatting it up with the locals while my girl friend was worshiping the sun. As I rounded a corner i heard the sound of music coming from what looked like an otherwise empty space. Upon looking inside, this is what i saw. Just thought i would share these pics (sorry for the sunlight) its a very sunny place. This is all this guy had in his shop. A jointer, router, homemade table saw, and a spray gun. With the tools listed its certainly enough to build lots of nice furniture but im only trying to make a point. Notice the table saw. It was basically a plywood top with the motor on the bottom. I didnt really look under it but it was the crudest example of a table saw ive ever seen. I asked if i could take some pics and he said yes. He was working on some cabinets at the time i took these pictures.

No fence here, he just screws a guide rail to the top
Jointer in the foreground, radio on a stand screwed to a post thats not even close to being plum.
