Every woodworker has their favorite tools. My favorite is the Shopsmith MARK V, by the Shopsmith company. It can be reconfigured quickly into many tools. It can also be configured as a lathe and grinder at the same time, thus allowing quick periodic tool sharpening during lathe turning projects. And, the addition of a NOVA type chuck makes mounting and unmounting the wood quick and easy.

A part of the enjoyment and satisfaction from woodworking comes from the experience of creating works from different types of wood, especially exotic woods. But, exotic woods can be hard to find. A supplier of exotic woods that I recommend is a company named Cormark, located in Weaverville, North Carolina. They have an immense selection and knowledgeable, friendly, professional staff. Actually choosing an exotic wood out of all the choices can be a task since each wood has different characteristics. Below are some of my notes about different woods, which may help with the choice of selecting wood.
