    8'x8' oak table

    Before addressing the other issues, how flat and straight are the 4/4 boards? How much thickness will remain after milling the boards flat and straight?

    Need Advice on Cabinet Door Repair

    Maybe the problem is slamming the doors. Soft closers would help if that's an easy option, or meds.
