    Cedar and Redwood are rot resistant. Cedar fences will last 20-30 years and pine and doug fir will rot out within 10 years. My experience only, and I'm no expert.

    Full scale dinners for a crowd need a double oven, so one dish can cook while another one is warming up or cooking. We cook a lot and use the double oven about four times a year. Our oven is a...

    I watched both videos. How he uses the filler is interesting. He drills holes at each end of the template to match the diameter of the hinge, but as we all know, that diameter is not exact and...

    I used to own this saw before I got a vintage 12" DeWalt. I think the table adjustment is unnecessary. Get it reasonably close. Set the fence and then make the post adjustment which is the fine...

    Float. Way too much expansion which would ruin your door. Simple frame and panel construction addresses this. I've never used space balls. If properly constructed, frame and panel will work just...

    I disagree. You own the property only which is described in legal filed deed, no more, no less. Unless the description is based on a changing natural feature (like a river), the metes and bounds...

    Legal descriptions can be easy to follow (Tract No., Lot No.) or nearly impossible (called metes and bounds). So your question is one that no one can really answer. Post your legal description, and...

    +1 to Richard's opinion. Always a rabbet, never a groove or dado. I use 1/4 x 1/4" lengths of wood (same species and finish) and pin nail these as stops to hold the glass in place.
