Even with Woodcraft’s sale, Amazon, considering shipping and sales tax, is still cheaper for the Whiteside bitsâ

I am just getting started and have put up mostly random thoughts and a few projects. I did however just put up a photojournal of my latest trip to the Winterthur Museum. Some great pictures of stunning period furniture up there now. I have some great ideas coming this summer including a trip to the Lie Nielsen factory in ME. Stop by and tell me what you want to see.

Oh yeah, and I am now registerd for WIA. Can’t wait, let’s all get together and have a beer while we are there. I’ll need someone to keep an eye on me around the exhibitors. I might just spend myself to death if not kept in check.

I’m pretty stoked about the new Unisaw. I’ve always wanted a Unisaw, but I also want a riving knife. Problem solved! If it truly is made in the USA, all the better. If not for this new Unisaw, I probably buy a Grizzly machine.

Thanks for the great marketing information, Nicole. I’ve recently read discussions about this in online forums. There was a lot of good advice, but not nearly as complete as yours. And such wisdom is applicable far beyond the woodworking world.

That woodworking conference sounds great, but I don’t think I can get to Kentucky this fall. Bummer.
