    "Professional" paint (Sherwin Williams, etc) vs Box-Store paint

    Thread Starter: Dan Friedrichs

    Midrange Table Saw Advice

    Thread Starter: John McKissick

    Finished my Solar Lumber Drier Today

    Thread Starter: John TenEyck

    Now that I own a bandsaw lumber mill I need to be able to dry wood a lot more efficiently and hopefully with better control than air drying it in stacks. So I built a solar lumber drier. The design is very similar to one published in Wood Magazine several years ago. It has an 8 x 12' footprint,...

    few made machines
