My wife likes pallet-wood stuff. But personally, I thought the video was hilarious! Who knew that a professional redneck woodworker could do a pitch-perfect sendup of “hipsters”?

For anyone that is a fan of Bridge City Toolworks, they have the Jointmaker Pro v2 on sale for $675 for a limited time now. I think that is half off the regular price. Still expensive, but more attainable now if anyone is interested.

Ahhh... the non-electric Shopsmith! These are awfully cool, especially for those who would have the right span of project dimensions to find one useful.

Yeah, I have always been fascinated by the capabilities of this tool from Bridge City Toolworks...it allows you to make some very thin kerf lines to create curved pieces or kinetic sculptures with ease. Just wish they hadn't sold out to Harvey (Chinese company). Used to be a Portland, OR based company.
