SWMBO bought a new couch on Sunday, decided it needed new end tables, and an entertainment center to match another piece in the room.
As that piece was a custom made piece, these will need to be too…

Does this mean the same thing as ” new sliding compound miter saw” ?

And some more clamps, router bits and a bigger router, a couple of Wixey digital gauges, and a new dado blade set.

Hmmmm… I ran that through the universal woodworkers translator and came up with “new cabinet saw”.

I think I remember reading on our site that you say, “Oh I really want to make these to perfection but the old saw that I’m using just won’t be able to do the job justice.”

or maybe it’s: “what is your timeline for this? Long-term? I’ll start working on it but be patient. Soon? Well, to do the job right (and efficiently) I really would need a new saw.”

I won’t need permission to buy…just justification once it’s seen…

(swmbo) ” is that new? I thought you had one like that….”

at least it’s not a router….
(swmbo) ” how many of those things do you need for one table?”

Dragonsrite.. saving that one for the 18 foot long built-in bookcase, that is farther down the list…..

That is one of woodworking’s unwritten rules- New furniture = new tools. But that does bring up the question of who is going to pay for them. If your wife is anything like mine I can buy myself a new tool as long as I buy the end tables too. :)

(ET)+(EC)=New Saw. Yup, the equasion works out
End Tables + Entertainment Center equals New Saw. Can’t argue with math

No question about who will pay for the tools… if I’m lucky, I might get some “supplies” money…
