I’m interested in buying a Grizzly 1.5hp dust collector (Model G1028Z2) on Craigslist. The price is great – over 50% off. I haven’t been to see it yet. The guy sent photos including the attached. The metal appears to be bent, pos...

I am the creator/writer of Furnitude, a blog about handmade furniture by someone who makes it. The address is http://furnitude.blogspot.com. The mission of the blog is to connect furniture makers with furniture appreciators. Also, it is a medium for furniture makers to gain inspiration from seeing the work of others.
My own furniture making enterprise is called Human Hands Woodworking. The website is http://www.humanhandswoodworking.com. Here's my bio:
A furniture-maker for over 15 years, I work in the Shaker and Arts & Crafts traditions, with an appreciation for Mid-Century Modern thrown in. I love the play between the traditional and the modern. Whether I’m interpreting a traditional piece or creating something entirely unique, my passion is always to make something beautiful and useful and lasting.
A native Tennessean, I lived in New York City for 11 years, where I honed my skills with hand tools out of necessity: living in a two-room apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan afforded no space for power tools (Central Park benches substituted nicely for a workbench when noisy hammering had to be done). I now live in East Nashville, Tennessee.
I see a striking similarity between furniture and poetry. In 2000, I earned a Masters of Fine Arts in creative writing from Vermont College. My work has been published in Poetry, Willow Springs and other journals. In 2005 I won the “Discovery”/The Nation poetry prize. As a furniture maker, I bring the same consideration of form and function to the design of tables and chairs that I do as a poet to sonnets and villanelles.
