    Best 24” bandsaw for industrial setting?

    Thread Starter: Jack Hovanec

    Veneer Replacement Technique

    Thread Starter: Don Stauffer

    I'm refinishing an end table and it's not going well. I guess there wasn't enough burled walnut veneer left on the top so I sanded through it in places. Well, I learned, so that's something.
