    Your challenge is going to be getting that pine to look good with an even color, honestly. It's not a great species to work with for the look you want to achieve, IMHO. This is regardless of whether...

    I use the small miter fence constantly, Steve, but I am a little less space constrained than you are. Since I cut down the right side table, I leave the full outrigger on, too.

    The issue with PFTE coatings when they get too hot goes beyond durability...they release toxic fumes. But cooking with lower temps is a good thing when you can and eggs/omelettes are actually better...

    "Maybe" is my answer simply because there are enough unknowns here that I don't want to commit. "ideally" there would be no intersecting tenons. That said, when I look at your diagram with the...

    I have the XL so I obviously use the 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 14mm Dominos most of the time for my work. (I do have the Seneca adapter to use the 500's cutters for smaller, however) My preference is...
