I've got a nice wide resaw blade on there so I don't really require the long rip fence Sparkey described in another thread where he talked about building his redwood pirouge. (See, Sparkey, some of us do tend t' spend a lot o' time reading th' older threads )

SHAME on you
Concur, and add aluminum boats to that list. Both materials serviceable - and both ugly and loathsome.sheena's dad said:... Ugh...plastic boats.... ugliest things on the face of this earth....
I heard tell once of a guy who set an aluminum canoe on a campfire, filled it with water, and took a hot bath. My wooden boat can't do that.sheena's dad said:Th' only good thing an aluminum 'noe is good for is meltin' down to sale with th' sodie cans :wink:
