Looks cozy enough and quite adequate to me. What is the clear plastic container on the bench next to a tool box containing some white substance? Hope you don't have immediate plans to use the pickup!

It works ok. I have it set up so I have enough room on each side of my tablesaw blade to cut full sheets of plywood. Also in the corner you can't see is a hallway into the house which adds 8 feet that gives me over twelve feet on each side of the chopsaw or thickness planer. The ten foot ceiling makes swinging lumber pretty easy in the small space. I have a lot of light up there as well for night use. Four 8' daylight fluorescents and 6 incandescents in two ceiling fans.

It's Cryogenic perlite. It has the texture of sugar but is virtually weightless. I use it in my concrete as a sand substitute to reduce the weight of the crete as much as 60%. I buy it in big 3 cu foot bags from Grace Industries. It's used by industry to insulate tanks but virtually identical to the perlite used in making light weight concrete for structures like parking garages. The cryogenic product is less dusty so I prefer it.

Who are you talking to? And what are you talking about? I know, I know.. He has been told many many times to reply to the thread instead of starting a new one. Some people are just born hard headed. Or too stupid to figure it out? Clay

Computers and usenet are not second nature to all of us. There are a lot of great woodworkers out there who's knowledge will be lost forever because they don't use a computer. We should be encouraging EVERY woodworker to jump in a post in any fashion they can so their knowledge can be saved for the future.
I read a recent article that said the AVERAGE age of those practicing woodworking as a hobby is well over 50. The hobby is DYING!
I recently gave a computer to a friend who is an absolute expert on Bonsai. He probably knows more about how to Bonsai North American plants in colder climates than anyone else but all that will be lost when he dies. I'm hoping to get him up and running in a couple online Bonsai forums so he can share what he knows and where it will be recorded for posterity.
I make concrete slabs and pots for him to sell with his plants. He gifted me with a bonsai at Christmas I could easily sell for $800.

Wanna bet it's always been that way?

Sure couldn't tell it around here. There seems to be more woodworking schools, teachers, seminars, woodworking shows, stores, tools, books, articles, magazines, and wood botiques catering specifically to the woodworker, etc. than at any time in my memory.

I agree, aging baby boomers have a lot of money and short memories....:) How many books do you have on the same topic? I have about a dozen on bandsaws alone.
That's what's so great about working in Hypertufa and concrete. Very few books (most are crap) and the tools are cheap. A pair of gloves and a good rasp are all you need..<g>
Personally I think all the how-to books, TV shows, and help groups are hurting personal ingenuity and creativeness. Instead of looking for unique solutions most crafter's go running to the TV or Internet for answers. I try to avoid that and beat my own path as much as possible. :)

As opposed to trying to follow Dando's random posts?

By "us" I guess you mean Dando and yourself.

I don't think he's a woodworker. He's more like a troll. How long have you been pressing buttons and looking at a mini TV screen?

Having computer skills have nothing to do with this. As parents and mentors, we're responsible for killing this art.

"recorded for posterity" ????? LOL! Thanks!~ I needed a good laugh today!

This has what, exactly, to do with the price of gasoline in Africa?

So is your name Jimmy or David? I'm too lazy to do a trace, but I believe you could be Don Dando. BTW, I'm far from being a little man and the only luck I have is all bad. :)

yelling "JIMMY IN THE SHOP". His house and shop number were the same. Like no one could tell he was in the shop. My name is David. I could be Don Dando but I ain't...:)
BTW a trace won't help you.
