The living trades are the inherent occupations of man, derived in the
genesis of time; whereby, a man may do well for himself by applying
common sense and manual dexterity to the materials found at hand.

Consider this, if one would investigate all the major technological
advances made by man throughout history, you would find an individual
who has returned to the basic materials at hand. For example, the
computer chip from a handful of silica sand. This is living trade.
All there is to know about the living trades is yet to be known; no
man is master, we are apprentices all of our lives. In pursuit of
living trade, such knowledge and understanding, apprenticeship is the

laugh thinking back on those threads! Paddy and Bitchslap Bob were

deal on a local used Italian slider for under 4 grand. Unfortunately,
my disposable income is well under 4 grand. :(
There are a many ways to work wood. I have cut, shaped and fastened
more projects in my head than I will ever be able to physically
accomplish. Mental exercises can make you a better woodworker; and,
words can be as solid as oak.
Perhaps, you would be more comfortable with an inquiry about which
tablesaw to buy, or what dado head is best...like a virgin bride
shopping her trousseau. Only, I choose not to perceive the working of
wood to be an excursion for lace panties. Three years later, my
projects are remembered; I have nothing to prove...nor does insult
The living trade is for philisophical discussion between men for the
fair dissemination of knowledge and understanding. I would solicit
intelligent conversation, opinion, anecdotes, or topical dissention.
What is living trade?
Or, is this ng just lace panties?

There is no hurry to the man
Nor is there for the wood

The heart revealed
It will do
It will surely do

Well, thanks, Conan,
I find the English language amazing, millions of words, many with
multiple meanings and spellings; yet, the average individual utilizes
a vocabulary of only some two-hundred and fifty words.
Now, I am not sure if that includes grunts, burps, or farts...which
are also widely recognized as verbal expressions of dissension, being
words not at all. Perhaps, you would know?

My pleasure, D.A. As I'm sure you'll agree, condescension is much
more effective when the words are spelled correctly.
Verbal flatulance isn't really my area of expertise. Speaking of
which, welcome back. I do so look forward to the pearls of wisdom
that I'm sure you'll deign to share with us during your (as always)
And if you should find that you'd like to actually discuss
woodworking, I'll be glad to. In particular, I enjoy a good
discussion about the use of various non-electrical tools.
