Replace my Tivo that died with a "Tivo" that can do everything it did plus record DVDs of anything you want and surf / cruise the Internet from bed wit a wireless keyboard / mouse. The Tivo and the computer merge!

Routing table. I put a porter cable in it. Been wanting one for a while and bought it out of necessity last week. It's a bitch to assemble, though.

I would choose this one over that one:

Is only $20 more and has a much better tv-tuner card in it.

Mostly home stuff - builtins, molding, cabinets. I'd like to start doing more hobby stuff eventually - like custom furniture, but I don't have the room for a big shop at the moment. Everything I have is designed to be portable and setup at a job site.

Wood working is a hobby for me. I've made a few pieces of furniture. I just completed some wainscoting in our family room that came out pretty well. It's actually a poor mans wainscot. Put up a chair rail and took small molding and formed squares between the chair rail and base board. My wife thinks I'm a genious. So do her cute friends. It's amazing how many times I've heard her friends say "I wish my husband was as handy around the house".
