    I probably didn't even put my name on anything until I got one that I could live with and that was for a couple custom builds for friends. I still don't put any logo on....I leave that to the pros....:).

    Looks pretty awesome from where I’m sitting... and as pointed out you essentially got paid $1000 for it... so you’re doing ok in my book

    As far as tools... I am guilty of buying good tools at crappy pawn shops which equals crappy tools many times. Worn bearings, etc. But it has given me a live for tool building. My jointer used to be a broken 13" planer. My table saw was a circular saw with a broken basem my bandsaw is a 14" pawn shop cheapie ($175) that works great as long as I keep a car tire jack applying pressure on it to keep the blade tight : ). And of course there's my so-called shop. That's the half with the bad roof. But the good news is I got a ton of 100+ yr old oak and pine to work with. And thank u all for your great advice and encouragement. I think i:'ll probably be like the other Steve (my name is Steve also). And hit a good stride around 7 or 8 builds. rps20180606_131300.jpeg rps20180606_131543.jpeg

    Perhaps he’s talking about the half ‘with’ a roof?? Otherwise I hope it doesn’t rain too often...

  6. That building just looks like it needs new paint and it will be good to go!

    Great first build!
