    Very nice! I landed a belt and disc sander that is going to make like much easier!

    I made some practice bends using ordinary flat sawn Maple before I had the legs attached.

    Looks great to me! And I see your remote sitting right there; it's fancier than I thought. :cool:

    Yup! Fully remote controlled automated side bender! :dude:

    That remote has absolutely nothing to do with the DVD player on the bench. I swear... :squint:

    They make remotes now for DVD players? Cool. :yesway:

    Still a nice bender, remote controlled or not.

    Nice!
    I got $150 gift card to Harbor Freight, tempted to buy an electric motor for the buffer I'll be building soon...
