I’m finally building a proper workbench, and am not doing it all by hand, but more than usual for me. I had the top glued up in a couple pieces, and was cross cutting the ends. I was cutting with the trusty disston, with the boards clamped to my tablesaw, and this is when the wife walks in, rolls her eyes and laughs at my 500$ sawhorse. At least I won’t get laughed at as much on here :)

That’s hilarious! If it makes you feel any better, I’ve got my table saw in the very back of my shop covered with a tarp and all kinds of things piled on top of that.

I use mine for a lot more than cutting lol.

Glueing, flattening wood/metal, routing. Pretty handy units!

My wife walked by this for weeks before she even notice something new in the shop.

The only reason she noticed is it is the only green machine I have.

distrbd: That exact thing is what my wife is used to hearing from me. And often it’s true. That’s because I don’t tell her when I buy it, but only after a year or two.

I tried that one before, failed miserably.

I have also been know to tell her that I found it in the parking lot of Home Depot.

This is exactly why you don’t ever let your wife know how much you pay for tools.

You think that’s hurts?
When I was just starting my shop when I was young and times were hard and money was even harder I got this one.

1: “Sure seems like a very expensive HOBBY to me” Ouch!

2:”You have a shop full of tools, what do you do all day out there?”

3: I got a new Powermatic bandsaw, ” Oh my god that thing is a hideous color!”

4: Brought home a new Unisaw to replace my old worn out contractor table saw, I got: ” Well you already have a saw thing, why is this thing that’s a ugly color better?’

It goes no and on.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Antiwife.
It’s all good.
