    If you have a hard time getting things perfectly level, maybe you need a First Guess Gravity Gauge.

        It's about two banker's boxes worth of books. Books were the foundation of my practical and philosophical woodworking knowledge. Arts and Crafts Furniture really opened my eyes to different ideas of what craftsmanship meant.
