    Perhaps the hinge you're thinking of is the Blum 33 or 38N or 39C. They all register against the edge of the face frame. Some of them can be had with soft close. You pick the overlay distance...

    You say the doors are inset. Then you say you want a hinge which mounts to the edge of the face frame. Those two don't work together.

    I don't see the advantage of the Schmitt over less-expensive jigs. The basis of the 32mm system is a column of 5mm holes set 32mm on center, 37mm from the front. Any good shelf-pin jig does that....

    Deck boards have gaps partly due to shrinkage, but mostly to assure water drains off the deck. Water pooling on wood for long times is going drastically shorten the service life, no matter how...

    Say you're wearing a dust mask like many of us have in the shop. Perhaps the sneeze droplets are big enough to be stopped by the filter -- I don't know. What happens in the next few minutes? ...

    Before you commit to catalyzed finishes, research their health hazards. Conversion varnishes depend upon formaldehyde. 2K urethanes depend upon isocyanates. Those are both very hard on the human...

    It depends. For instance, I do final sanding on drawer interiors before gluing them up, because sanding those inside corners is difficult. But I do final sanding on the outside after glue-up,...

    This country in three months?

    Health officials are not sure, but they seem hopeful that if you survive a covid19 attack you get some sort of immunity to another attack, and you don't carry the disease to give to somebody else. ...

    Pretty darn nice!

    What did you do to get all that stucco and mortar off the planks? That stuff would destroy cutting edges in short order.

    Two-part bleach may well do what you want. However, my experience is that it soaks into the wood to spread sideways, and wicks under masking tape. So keeping it exactly where you want it may be a...

    Me, I'm a pretty skilled woodworker, but I am intimidated by metal working. I'd seriously consider making Stickley's iron hoops from wood. I'd try either of two methods. One would be steam...

    I can't imagine that the radius on the inside face of the staves changes from top to bottom. I'd bet it is constant. Both Stickley and you can make that without crazy efforts. You can use that...

    That is really nice!

    I'm wondering about the surrounding context. In the pic labeled GM Angle, it looks like there are more of these dilapidated ex-garage structures on the right. In most...

    I don't like the feel of sidemount slides used as undermount. When the drawer is opened the slides flex, so the drawer sags or bounces.

    Blum does make a hinge which they say has "zero...

    Every dado stack I've met does that. The theory is that the tips at the edges score the wood so that the chippers in the middle remove wood cleanly.
