    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    Beautiful work! Looks like you are more advanced in the craft than I am. I just started up in April of this year. Strictly stock removal for me although I did buy an anvil and a small gas forge...

    Amazon makes move to Brick and Mortar!?!

    I get that, but we are talking retail here. Clothes and electronics and such. I think it's just going to be a losing deal for a tax write off...

    Amazon makes move to Brick and Mortar!?!

    Why would they do this? Much more overhead and they are already making a killing in the online home delivery market. I see no reason to go fight a crowd in an Amazon store when I can get next day delivery...

    No one talks about the important stuff anymore

    While I agree it might be nice to have other flavors Raspberry is my favorite so I'm glad it's the universal filler! Custard is good too, but not a fruit flavor.

    Every afternoon, the squirrel starts barking...

    I can understand that, my dad has become the same way in his older years. I just find the destruction hard to deal with and the trap and release has not worked out for me...I could live with the squirrels IF I could find a way to keep them out of my Almond tree. The pigeons, I just can't deal...

    Every afternoon, the squirrel starts barking...

    I have a really nice Almond tree in my yard. Two years ago they picked it clean before I could harvest the nuts. This year they started in on it and I had to harvest early. From now on they are corpses right along with the Pidgeon's that crap on everything...

    Anyone else have trouble owning/playing a $2k guitar?

    I've owned guitars up to $7K and ended up selling them all. I've never found one that was just so much better than my lower priced guitars. I'm also not the greatest player around...Right now my Epiphone JB Gold Top is getting all the attention. I am just about ready to pick up a Brent Mason...

    John Deacon > Jimmy Page

    Some of these artists have also given away millions...that may make them lower on the list. Gilmour donated everything from his guitar auctions.
