#1 Son and I did some running around today…and spent a few dollars. We found a great piece of Padauk for the State Fair project and were seriously tempted by the Worksharp 3000!

And now your shop will look like a huge bag of cheetos exploded and stuck to everything :) . Padauk is a really nice wood, though, and I like the smell.

My shop actually looks like the Cheetos bag exploded and all I did was rout an edge on a 3”x6” piece of Padauk.
A piece that big will look like the Cheetos Factory exploded.

:) I hear that! I’ve worked with Padauk before…usually when wearing one of my favorite hockey sweatshirts or tee-shirts. Those Cheetos stains do not wash out easily!
