    Nutsedge has a small bulb or "nut" underground that I'd expect makes it very resistant to something like roundup that kills foliage. Don't know what you'd use to kill it, though, since the most...

    To dehumidify, you can run the electric heater against the mini split on air conditioning mode.

    It sounds wasteful but it'll improve the A/C's dehumidifcation efficiency dramatically when it's...

    I was thinking you'd use outlets that have to be installed in an electrical box, but apparently you could use surface-mount dryer receptacles that don't require a box.

    If that's the case you'd do...

    Wirenuts are unnecessary; just use a short length of wire to jump each of the terminals on the outlets together. They should be able to take two wires.

    There's no rule that says your tools all have to plugs on them. Or maybe there is; I'm not an electrician or an expert on building codes. But you could, functionally at least, just get a dryer cord,...

    Could also be the beginnings of decay, old injury from bird pecks, or maybe even ambrosia beetle staining (which you sometimes, though rarely see in cherry). Or a combination of those and the others...

    It looks like you're on the right track, but one thing you can do is cut the high corners off the bark side with a chainsaw. This'll help balance the blank better.

    Anchorseal immediately after cutting the logs. If you're cutting thicker than 4/4 it helps to apply a second coat after milling to the ends, that extends an inch or two onto the faces.

    Pear is not a durable wood. It will stain from fungus and become infested with insects very quickly if left in log form. If you're going to process it, do it immediately.

    Dave Ramsey says to pay off your smallest debts first. It's more of a psychological thing than anything else.

    For what it's worth, the table on the PM2000 is junk, too. It's made out of particleboard and the legs are held on by tiny little screws in said particleboard. Mine wasn't even close to flat, either.

    I think it's mostly for router bits. It's a lot like the other product (glidecote), if it's not identical. Basically a thin layer of wax that's easy to apply but gets abraded off just as easily.
