Tell us about yourself!
I love the sound of the shears chomping down on the tube! :))) #ASMR
Thanks for the explainer, EmmitS1! It's nice to know why succulents are able to survive with the calloused stem.
Wow...thanks for this post, Jessy! I learned so much from this short 'ible. I have jade plants propagated from cuttings, and though they're all in close proximity to one another, all look different, mostly due to the content of the planting material they're sitting in. The ones in compost are thriving, the one in play sand mixed with other stuff, not so much...it's hanging in there.I never knew that succulent stems should scab over first, before planting. I would've assumed that they'd have trouble absorbing water (like cut flowers), so I'm excited to do this intentionally!

Looks like it's mounted over the blade foot, via countersunk screws. See the two holes in the base plate, near the saw blade? Right there.
You are a fine craftsman! Beautiful work repurposing an old tool. :)
Looks beautiful and loungey. :) Creative use of the wood squares, and great photos!
