    Naphtha is evaporates faster than the old mineral spirits. Depending on what you’re doing, that might or might get not be a good thing. For instance, if you’re making your own wipe-on varnish, you’re...

    I like using a full top on base cabinets. It helps in the glue-up to keep all the parts aligned and square. It also keeps the cabinet together on the trip from my shop to the installation spot.

    Good ol' yellow glue -- titebond, elmers, etc will bond to MDF or particle board. (From the pics, I think I see particle board.) If you haven't installed the cabinet yet, you should be able to...

    Look at any interior door in your house. They're thick -- generally 1 3/8". If your cabinet door is 1 5/16" thick where the hinges attach, use knuckle hinges just like your interior doors work.

    Do you have a brad gun? If so, that has the speed advantage over screws. And since this stuff won't be seen, I'd leave the brads in the parts.

    Does the door have to open down into the living space? Could it instead open up into the attic? It would have stop molding of some sort so that it can never fall down where there are people to...

    My experience with wine racks is they take me much much longer than I predict. They involve lots of pieces of wood, and lots of joinery. And getting finish on all of those pieces, particularly way...

    I never use those weird adapters. Instead I use wood blocking, usually fastened to cabinet wall. Then I use a standard mounting plate. This approach seems like it would work for you.

    Lynn, you have to be an SMC Contributor to see pics. $6 per year. Your upload was successful; I can see the pics. Nice looking sign.

    Dunno about your machine, but in many drill presses, the chuck fastens to a shaft which connects up to machine above it with a Morse taper. Perhaps that Morse taper connection is loosening.

    Swivel rocker mechanisms seem readily available. For instance, Lee Valley sells one for $40. But if your outdoor chair is going to sit out in the rain, I'd be concerned about rust.

    So the hutch sides stand near the edges of the desk? Is there anything which prevents the hutch from moving sideways a bit, and falling off the edge?

    If the template is curved, I like MDF because it is easy to shape. It is soft, and has no grain or voids. If you need a sturdier template, you can use the MDF one as a master to make a baltic...

    These fishing rods are dry, right? If so, that’s good - the finish doesn’t need to be bullet proof.
