Re: Material: 5/4 Rough Western Red Cedar -- best

Another good point IMO made in both the video and Rob's writings is that it it essential to be completely aware while working. Repetitive tasks like ripping strips can induce a dangerous level of inattention ;'zoning out'. This problem arises after I think I've 'really got a system working on autopilot'.

I am very prone to day dreaming. This is one reason I've adopted using a power stock feeder. Not to say that it allows me to forget whats going on, but I'm typically ripping all the strips for 4 to 8 boats at a time, and given my inability to maintain focus for the extended periods required justifies setting up the stock feeder for more consistent results.
