    Table Saw Questions

    Thread Starter: John McGovern

    Hi All, I've been lurking in the weeds for some time and have found this venue to be the most knowledgeable, helpful, and courteous forum on the block. And, I know this question has been asked and answered so many times, but I hope you all have the patience for one more dip to the well to answer...

    3D Planning Software

    Thread Starter: Bennie Dempsey

    Hey all! I would like to start planning out my projects before I begin them, as I've heard that's a good habit to have. I can find a modeling program online pretty easily, but I wanted to see what you guys use. I am awful at hand drafting so paper and pencil isn't my go-to for personal projects....

    Seems the roll out of the new site is not going completely smoothly. Have been trying to place an order all morning and the site just spins when I try to checkout. Tried a few different browsers too. Guess I may have to call :eek: New site design seems nice and clean though but it will take...

    Two Year Old Camaster Stinger III

    Thread Starter: Ronald Blue

    I have a locally available Camaster Stinger III. It's a 4 X 8 machine with a three head setup. Whats the benefit of the three head arrangement? Is it an alternative to an ATC system?

    Sill to concrete barrier

    Thread Starter: Bill Jobe

    Is just the simple rolls of foam sill vapor barrier ok for an unheated shed? Also, would it help control sound to separate the staggered studs on separate sill? That is, 2 2x4s instead of one 2x6, with perhaps a sheet of drywall or sheet rock between them?

    recommendation for band saw purchase

    Thread Starter: Matt McGill

    I'm looking to get a band saw for under $2000. I'm a total woodworking rookie ... it's been a hobby for about 5 years. About every 6 months I'll look into band saws and then talk myself out of getting one. Then I'll do a project where I wish I had one... Every time I go "low end" on a (power)...

    India Ink

    I used india ink to dye the poplar legs of a butcher block table. I put on 1 coat, "sanded" it gently with a brown paper bag, and then put on

    Glue to attach pine to metal?

    Could you use a hanger bolt screwed into the blind side of the wood?

    My welding instructor once told me I would never be good at working

    How many people here own a Festool Domino?

    Thanks for all the input. I've decided that a domino is not in my immediate future but may be when I do the casework rebuild in my living room in a year

    India Ink

    Perhaps it raised the grain? I'd try to purposely raise it with water first. Then sand and apply the india ink.

    India Ink

    I haven't tried putting india ink on wood and smoothing. Maybe wet sanding with very fine paper? (800 or so?) If you sand through the ink in places
