I'm sure trying to keep a list and buy stuff when I've got to head into MPLS / St Paul for work. Many of my recent need for purchases have been driven by my own mistakes, so they're a little tougher to plan for:). I sure have searched high and low for a reliable source of even basic woodworking stuff, and there just doesn't seem to be one around. You'd think in a town of 85,000 people, there would be at least one wood working store around....... Oh well. I'm learning as I go and acquiring a nice set of tools in the process (much to my wife's chagrin....). I do love this kayak building project even though I'm learning the hard way. It's easily the most fun and satisfying project I've ever worked on.
