Payday Loans are just another boogie man in the class warfare narrative. Before easy credit and credit cards came about in the late 70s early 80s, if you needed money you either had to borrow from the store (ie Sears credit line) or Pawn Shops. I guess Pawn Shops will continue their resurgence.

I almost feel for those employees about to get benefits cut then I remember their union negotiated the ridiculous retirement packages in the first place. Being about to retire after 20-30 yrs on the job, at any age with substantial percentages of their salary (in many cases 100%) is ludicrous.

[quote]How do you make those cuts?[/quote]
I have a mortise jig that works with a router and I used a 1/2" spiral cut bit in a plunge router. This table has 62 tenons so I have had to make 124 cuts.
That wood would be great as a dining table or a coffee table (or both)....
| Outdoor Board|| re: Identifying wood and weird iron thing? W pics - Helo on 11/23/13 at 3:02 pm|
Referring to joints like mortise and tenon joints and not using screws as the primary connections.
Here is a picture of a picnic table I am making using floating tenons.
