I’m always on my bench and work from it all the time. Thing is I rarely use any of it’s features. Don’t get me wrong. I think this is a great bench. It works well and when planing and holding things in place of all sizes in many positions it can’t be beat. But, I fi...

I went to Home Depot this morning and bought a 3X18 Ridgid belt sander. It was the cheapest place I had found them, for $100.

I didn’t get a great deal of time to work on my painting yesterday. After all, it is only a few days until Christmas and I had some house chores here to take care of and I had planned a wonderful dinner date with Keith and his mom for the evening.

I did however get a couple of hours in and I did ...
