I had the most ridiculous epiphany today. A long time ago I made a guitar body with nothing but a router and hand tools, and it turned out...less than awesome. Part of the problem is that I was using 12/4 lumber. Don't ask. Anyway, I was looking at it today, and thinking that if I hollowed it out properly, it might make a nice acoustic bass. So I started playing around with it. Now I have a band saw, drum sander, drill press, table saw, and a few other neat toys. And you know what? I saved it!

That's when it occurred to me. I'd always thought power tools were for saving time, but I guess I was always too stubborn to admit that you can actually make better things...or at least make nicer things with less skill, by having a bunch of expensive tools. Who woulda thunk it?!

Now I want a spindle sander...
