I just came across this site by way of a 3-day search for an oscillating spindle sander (which I still have yet to find), and got hooked by all of the great projects going on here. Although I did find a PowerMatic in Mass for $250, which is about 3x what I wanted to spend, but it seems like a steal at that price. http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/tls/1019023185.html
I'm your typical DIY'er who's done renovations all over my own house, but have not yet ventured much beyond family/friends regarding other projects. In the past year or so I've taken a real liking to furniture building (thanks Norm), and various other interesting projects I would love to do.
Aside from some very basic projects like a few workbenches, and finish work all around my house, I have yet to build anything worth showing off.
However, that's soon to change. I've taken a liking to the art of guitar making, and am going to try my hand at a guitar from scratch, which is really only going to be a mock-up, not a real functioning guitar right now. For those who know what it is, I've even considered retrofitting this mock-up to use a guitar-hero guitar controls and making a full-scale custom guitar hero guitar.
Other than that, there are a few basic pieces I'm going to try and make in the coming months such as a bookcase, plant stand, coffee table, etc.
Are there any other members here in Connecticut?
