    Jim, since you're building, why not add an explosion-proof exhaust fan to give yourself more options for solvent-based finishes. Cost increase really wasn't that much, if memory serves.

    Thanks, Jim. I also use the 3M PPS system, so I know what you mean. I'll have to try some WB products again, sometime. I was disappointed first time a few years ago, and since I have the ability...

    I finished the refinishing. Not thrilled with it. I chose to lightly sand then overcoat the chair. At first I used the Epifanes and truly hated it. When I switched to the System 3 spar varnish it...

    Wow! Specific color matching to SW colors. I have to remember this. I'm sure I'll find a use for it.

    Any specific issues to keep in mind for spraying this? I usually spray pre-cat lacquer, and...

    Wow, her technique is a lot more work than anyone here has suggested. It looks like it should work, but our crew here has better suggestions.

    I added a second dust collection port to several of my tools including my SawStop contractor's saw in the past. They all helped.

    Thanks for the video, Mark.

    What I see as the most difficult step (and the one I had some issues with) is making the second template and making sure that the router doesn't deviate at all from...

    I just looked at the Article (FWW, May/June 2013 - "A Unique Cutting Board").

    They did not propose step 5. Interesting method, Malcolm.

    I had one in my last house too. It was great. The battery backup option is also nice if your area is prone to power outages.

    The record high temperature in Tampa is 99. It has never reached 100 there. St Petersburg's temperature record high temperature is exactly 100. And Clearwater's high was 98. I can't imagine 111....

    No question I headed down the wrong path in the beginning. I didn't realize that the two pieces wouldn't match due to the thickness of the bit changing the radius of the "matching" piece.

    Funny, I never use the platen on my Grizzly. I'll have to give a try using it. So, at least in my case, I haven't found it necessary.
