    Biscuits actually have diagonal grain for this reason. A #20 biscuit has about as much glue surface as a 6x40mm domino. Granted they don't penetrate as deep, but they can supply sufficient strength...

    I would think any panels built that way would need to be balanced, that is alternating layers on each side of the core running the same direction. A five degree off set doesn't amount to much. To...

    Richard, I have much the same machine as yours, a 4x8 Stinger built in 2011 but with a "3 hp" Porter Cable 7518 router instead of a spindle. I wonder if you are pushing it as hard as you might. I...

    I used the wench with a come-along as a safety.

    15mm is less than 19 so, no ( though there's not a lot of material left below the mortise). Plunge 15 mm into the face panel and 25 into the edge.

    A complication is the height of the cutter from...

    Yes, this is literally "cutting corners". I'm not totally against repairing the existing doors but I'm not into sanding paint and plugging holes. If they can be repurposed that would definitely tilt...

    Light coming across the workpiece at a flat angle. If you come in the shop early in the morning and look at a poorly sanded piece sitting on a bench by an east window you will get the idea.

    Can also be from loose grit left from intermediate sanding steps. Vacuuming between grits can help. I am surprised those didn't show up. Try better raking light for inspection.

    The pullout table common to both Joyce's and Frid's books are what Frid calls a "Dutch pullout". It is a leg and apron table with leaves that slide out from under the central leaf on tapered...

    I use a biscuit joiner for cabinetwork all the time without the problems you are having. The Porter Cable will do an acceptable job if used correctly.

    I use the fence whenever possible, normally...

    One drawback to nib-head screws is when they are used repeatedly in the same holes, as when fastening jigs, shaper sub-fences and the like- the holes just keep getting deeper. The depth of non-nibbed...

    Many years ago I got in about 1500 bf of Honduras Mahogany in the same shipment. Half was really nice, fairly dense, dark and flat, the rest was consistently bowed, blond, low density, peppered with...

    The shop I used to work at has a signout list for borrowed tools. That cuts down a bit on fruitless searches.

    If I could get back the time spent looking for misplaced tools my hair would be gray instead of white.

    I recently had a helper for a day who used one of my earmuffs, which quickly disappeared. I...

    Every 4" @ $.75 apiece? That's...expensive. (Mumbles to self... base cabinet sides... two rips per sheet times 96" divided by 4 times 75 cents... yeah, that's expensive.)

    You’re fastening edge banding on with Lamello Tenso connectors? I’ve never heard of that! The banding must be thick - like 3/4” thick? How close together do you space the connectors?

    With a sanding block.

    Is the kerfed panel structural or added to an inner box? If structural, will it be strong enough with that deep a kerf? If decorative, it could be made in two pieces.
