Ha! that’s funny Paul. She is actually more of a brand snob than I am. You should see her sewing equipment. Even “Singer” is a dirty word. “Made in the USA” isn’t good enough for her. If it isn’t Swiss or German, she doesn’t buy it. She even asked me multiple times why I ”bought such a piece of crap planer” She is really starting to see the value in good tools and how buying cheap tools ends up costing you twice. I will probably have a DW735x before the week is out as she wants to make 12 more long grain boards at request of her coworkers.

My project list is already her project list. The only thing I made that I actually wanted to make was all of my jigs.

Also, that is not my mancave. She already as her area and spends quite a bit of time out there with me. She loves to restore old furniture. She never really paid attention to what I was doing until now. I did get a LOT of “why do you have to…” questions, but showing her why is easier than explaining it.

My mancave is upstairs. I love music, and have a very nice room with great acoustics, a beautiful set of bowers and wilkens speakers fed by a McIntosh tube amp, a single, comfy leather chair, some woodworking books and not much else.
