    Do it right or don't do it. Tape and level are a necessity. Depending on how big the picture is, a drill is also necessary.

    and painters tape...make a loop with it, sticky side out, and put it on the back of the frame then press it into the wall. Then the picture can't get moved by accident once you have it level :cool:

    :cool: Krappypants, what's happenin?

    Luckily, Jeanne understand this concept. I married an engineer. Yes I did. But she is still a female in many WTF ways. Like, a place for everything and everything in its place. How can you get a masters in engineering and not have this inherent sense?

    Erica can't picture anything like that in her head. If I am trying to explain what I want to do, I have to take her by the hand to whatever we are talking about and temp place it on the wall/ground.

    :cool: learned that trick from a friend when we were hanging a show in a gallery
    i am equally messy and nearing ocd organized depending on what aspect of my life we're talking about.

    that would drive me crazy. and i wouldn't be doing the job that i'm doing now! i can pretty much look at a 2d set of drawings and have the building pretty much figured out in my head in 3d in an instant

    I'm the same way. I can visualize about anything. At this point in time I have to... we don't even have a jet built yet :(

    Yeah, I am very good spatially and geometrically. I sucked at algebra, excelled at geometry. And years of loading freight trailers during college made me a tetris master. People will say, "that won't fit in there," and I'll say yes is will...

    I also have to be able to walk through the house or garage in complete darkness without running into anything and put my hand on any possession at will.

    My wife can't visualize anything. It made building a house very difficult.

    So when she says, OMG, that's too big, it will never fit, you have to prove her wrong every time?

    So do you have any band saw or drill press recommendations? I have done zero research on this to date and don't have time right now. but I think those are the two tools I have found myself wishing I had most often in the past few years. Finally I will have room and power for them.

    I got the ridgid standing drill press and i been really happy with it. I have the craftsman 14" band saw. It is pretty good, but if I had to do it again, i would probably go with the grizzly.
