Eleven hours! It may be hard to choose between this and another reading of War and Peace...
Winning it sounds good, and it would go over ever so much better with my beloved (aka swmbo).
One thing is not clear from your photos -- is the shelf "floating" above the lower horizontal member, or is it "resting" on it? (I think I would prefer it to be "floating" -- I just wonder if you decided otherwise.)
I think it's an excellent and very clean design. Prepare to be plagiarized! Having lived in several houses with wavy walls, I like that the design allows for some of that -- I really dislike having to fit a piece to such a wall. I would have hung it using keyhole slots in back, but that's largely because I would rather do the fiddlies with the keyholes than fill the holes and match the finish.
A Sawstop would be nice, but a European planer/thicknesser would be ever so nice!
A Festool half-sheet orbital sander, please. I already have a half-sheet orbital sander, and it's great for everything except my breathing apparatus. The Festool would obviate the need for those darn masks
I've never made it to one of the Lie-Nielsen demos, but I'd be delighted to experience the feel of one of their planes in my shop.
Listing the Woodrat as one of your choices and not the Router Boss shows a worrisome lack of knowledge or judgment. The Router Boss is a direct descendant of the Woodrat, and is better both in design and implementation. (I have owned both.)
A Veritas #5-1/4W plane, please. You don't have to wrap it. I'm sure I have a sock it will fit into...
"7. When making ripcuts, stand to the left of the blade."
That one surprises me. Regardless of which side of the fence you are using for the rip? Regardless of whether you are right or left-handed?
