A tricked-out job trailer may not get you any girls, but
it will get you organization. With efficient
compartmentalization, your tools and materials will *all*
arrive at the job site with you, and you'll be able to
find them!

"If only I'd a done it different..." That's the theme of
this article on building a shop from scratch. Those who
have been in business long enough to learn where they went
wrong have shared a wealth of information to help the
start-up shop before construction commences.

Nothing like a discussion on chirtalk charquoids to cheer
up a weary woodworker. Or was that curtate trochoids we
were talking about? Get those little rascals all sorted
out at:

You've got the newel cap, you've got the hand rail... And
now you're scratching your head. How do you notch the
profiled cap to accept the angled end of the handrail so

A disastrous accident at the up-cut saw has this employer
feeling desperate. What can he do to emphasize to his
employees how important it is to be safe on the shop floor
- *before* they mess up and lose a limb? And what will he
be up against if OSHA comes knocking?

Setting the depth of cut seems a critical step for this
