Can I have a little bit of desert climate please? Amazingly the tools in my
woodshop don't seem to rust (much) but everything steel outside it ..... yeesh.
We seem to have >90% humidity 360 days in the year.
Please write that in red letters on a large board and nail it to my neighbour's
head, would you, pretty please?

I just broke this one. Yesterday I finished a wooden plant dolly I
made and painted it with wood primer, then high-gloss white enamel. I

I like short sleeves, and prefer crew cuts.
I need to learn to like sharpening more so I do more of it.
I learned this one the hard way. I'm sure most woodworkers do.
I abandoned the idea of hard-wiring anything. Plugs area good thing.
A good excuse to buy another tool!
I don't have this problem. I feel very fortunate to have an
air-conditioned shop. At one time I considered an old chicken coop
for a wood shop.
