I’m casting about for ideas. I’m thinking of getting another tool, and I’m curious what you would get if you already had:
I might have around $300 to spend.
I have made boxes, and bottle stoppers and calendar frames. and I have made shelves and a hutch, and would like to make a coffee table, and a bedframe, bathroom cabinet/vanity. I like the arts and crafts style, stickley, greene&greene. simple things. I make telescopes too, but that’s a different story :)
I’ve thought of maybe a jointer, but really, the large #7 hand jointer and the jack plane do an excellent jobs. A router table, perhaps, or at least as an adjunct to the rails on the table saw.
A new/used table saw isn’t out of the question either, but I think I’ll have to spend a bit more than $300.
