    Dewalt makes a small right angle adapter that has no chuck, just a hex drive. Couple it with a hex drive drill bit of the right size and you can get in pretty tight spaces. Especially if you use...

    This is a basic recipe I use, except I usually increase (double+?) the cayenne as I like spicy ribs and butt.

    I can understand how an electrician's error might fry things on a 120V circuit, by somehow connecting it to 240. But there isn't any easy way for an electrician's error to fry a 240 volt machine or...

    Very nice Bob! I like the black legs contrast with the top, and I like the color you achieved with the danish oil mix.

    That's a nice looking window Scott! Nice vertical grain stock too.

    I finished up the knife block and silverware organizers and put them into service; happy with how they came out:
