Thank you Ivan. Work is metal but tools are wood

ok ok….i guess it was a trick question….so i searched it and saw what it was all about. Very nice work my friend, but….you gotta wonder…would someone actually pay that bridge city price for a deal like that. Just when you thought you have seen it all.

I saw their website in the past and love the look and (with a lot of imagination) feel of their products. If I ever would be a millionaire, I would buy some of them, even without being a real woodworker. I didn’t have enough/the right toys as a kid. :D

@mirock: You did a great job on a very functional and precise tool!

I love the creativity that you showed in milling that solution with minimalist tools. Well done.

I own two of their tools priced at what mortals can afford. The Kerfmaker and the Tenonmaker.

I’ve been dreaming of the jointmaker system (with the fancy fence) for years now. I really think I’ll ed of springing for it some day.

Thanks you all for responds and high valuation of my work.

I don’t think that original Bridge city jig too expensive but it is not convenient to order it from my country. I rather wanted to try make something by myself. I am hobbyst and don’t earn money by woodworking. I can spend my time for this even would be cheaper to buy it and devote time to real work.

I applaud your ingenuity, but putting your fingers so close to the saw blade when cutting metals on the circular saw made me cringe.

Very nice work!
I believe that all woodworkers are machinists in disguise and you are letting yours show through.
