    If you could build 1

    If you could build one item, cost and time not being a factor, what would it be? Now I am not talking about a house or something like that. A woodworking item.

    For me, it would be a Grandfather clock. I don't know why, we have one already. I think it would just be cool.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    My wife says a kitchen!
    I want to someday build a wall length, back lit, vertical stack, gun rack.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    But I really want to build a large shop, one half of a double car garage just isn't big enough. My wife wants me to remodel the kitchen. But I want to someday turn a large segmented bowl, something like what Malcolm Tibbetts creates.

    A fairly detailed bar & back bar set I guess would be on my cool list. Maybe a few wooden toys to go with it, such as a pool table and a couple of wooden pin-ball machines.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    A really once off fancy tool cupboard like we see on the back of Fine Woodworking. But i am thinking ridiculously fancy. Something that no one would want to chuck away one day.

    But Steve one is a very short list
    cheers

    My goal is to build an 8 foot trestle table and 8 chairs within the next year. The table won't be too hard but making a Federal or early American chair really makes me nervous. I really need to work on my confidence.
