I've been woodworking since building that first tree house with a buddy, we were probably around 8-9. I gained a real appreciation for wood in high school wood shop class. I made a few pieces of furniture back in the 80's, then woodworking was kind of put on hold while my wife and I raised two wonderful daughters. We built a house in 02.........well OK, building a house, finished the basement in 2009. Now the girls are 19 & 21 (time really does fly) and I am enjoying woodworking again!

Timbo, I’m not all that far north—just east of Leesburg, VA. Where did you get your steel from?

I just ordered the riving knives from Steel City, for their 35900 series saws, and they fit just fine. 1-877-724-8665, part #’s SC10150 and 10151, $11 each, $8 shipping, $4 credit card surcharge. Just don’t tell ‘em it’s for a Ridgid!

-- Now, where did I put those bandaids?
