    Laminated or Slab Benchtop

    Thread Starter: Erich Weidner

    For those of you who have built and worked on both, what is your advice? I just started looking to see if I could find a hardwood slab big enough for a 22" x 8' workbench (in 5-6" thickness).

    MDF Shortage - Is anyone seeing this?

    Our zip code is for an 'unencorporated' area. City problems are interesting, I wish them luck. Local law enforcement is focused on keeping people from

    It helps to know the right time to spray. Few weeks back I saw some poison ivy where we and our neighbors walk. I brushed on some undiluted brush kill

    I have one that I bought from Sears 35+ years ago; it has been used once or twice and did a satisfactory job. Just last year I needed to cut some mortises
