Retro chic! Mostly I wanted to demonstrate that cool stuff can be made without a lot of expensive tools.

I love the design, Steve. You used power tools in a few ways I’ve never done, myself and probably won’t ever do, but you got the job done and nicely, too.

Great video, another home run. I really like the way you showed how to do things using different tools. For example, drill motor instead of drill press or the way you made the belt sander a stationary sander. Cant wait till next week.

Loving this retro trend you’ve got going on. This project in particular because as a child The Jetsons fueled my imagination. Where are my flying cars!!

Another great video and excellent way to show that you don’t have to have Norm Abram’s tool shed to make a project. Thanks again Steve!

-- I make sawdust. I think thats a fair assessment of my finished products!
