Back to frozen Minnesota after 10 days on Kauai. I didn’t bring back any wood this time, but some new ideas for projects. I met a fellow wood worker near Kapaa, and he had me drooling over his shop and tools…a full compliment of Jet tools; table saw, lathe, drill press, planer, band saw, wide belt sander, jointer, etc. I am so envious! He did have a minor mishap the day after we met….he has an additional Sawstop table saw, and while sawing a piece of plywood, the blade brake triggered; apparently a bit too high a moisture content. He had to replace blade and brake…ouch!
I am anxious to get back to making a mess in my humble garage/shop…the weather is starting to warm up to near 50 this week.
