JW Craftsman: How many times did you rearrange and reorganize your shop before you were actually happy with the layout? After working in the shop for a few months I always think of

Yonatan24: How do you get musical creativity vs DIY creativity? Do music ideas pop into your head? Thinking of a song isn't like turning steel into a knife, clever project ideas come from a NEED for a solution. & how do you know you aren't ripping anyone off, ie copying a tune/sing you heard on the radio 2 weeks before...?

John Made it: I'm terrible at identifying wood types. how did you guys learn to identify them? is there any good guides to identify different spices of wood?
