Just thought I would post my disbelief of what I just found on Craigslist. A big walnut tree that the owner is giving away claims good lumber or is going to become firewood – Can you believe that?

After trying to come up with a hobby to try and occupy some time, I decided to try woodworking. My experience as a machinist over the last decade gave me some insight on how to accomplish a few tasks. I like building stuff with my hands, and woodworking seemed logical. I am still very much considered an amateur, but I can live with that.
I have a basic shop minimalistic shop set up now in my basement. Since I have it in my basement, and no dust collection system worth mentioning, ( a small 3 gallon shop-vac) I have been keeping dust and noise to a minimum in order to keep safe. Naturally, I don't do any staining or painting in the basement, that is reserved for better weather. I have goals of turning my garage into a more permanent setup, but right now it lacks sufficient power and weather resistance.
-- What do you mean it's square? How did that happen?
