I would be happy with just some time to work in the shop I already have, bought myself a Epilog laser last spring and it has been a blast. I would just like some extra time to be able to incorporate the laser into more of my other projects. I’ll try to post some of the laser work I have been doing with wood. Maybe if I would have the room it would be a drum sander or a CNC router.

Sailboat – - saw Norm make one and though it was really cool.

We have lots of little man made lakes and tons of wind in Kansas, but the total size of the finished project, versus my small shop keeps me pushing it back.

Interesting how few looked at the OP link. The quesion is on what PROJECT is on your list.

Not what toy is on your Christmas wish list.

I thought of another one.

End World Hunger.

And a Byrd SHELIX replacement cutter head for my Dewalt 735 planer.

Oh. Maybe that counts as two more.

Another street organ. Made one, got the plans for the next larger one. Just has to get committed to the build.

I’ve thought about this since I first read this thread yesterday and can honestly say I have nothing on my list that I just have to make. I typically build what we need and not to any particular style either.

The way it works for me is the wife suggest something she wants and I go build it after I get the design approved by her of course.
