    OK, here are a couple of photos. The key is to make sure the outer edge of the router bit is in the same plane as the shoe that rides on the panel, or just a smidgeon shy.

    Woodsmith magazine had a very useful jig to hold a router parallel to the surface of the sheet goods. I can't find a picture of the one I made at the moment, but I can take one if you are...

    Richard, 0.010" offset is huge. No offense, but you should try a different way of gluing up panels. I just did a 42 x 95" table top with 4 wide boards. I glued up 2 at a time then the two halves...

    Dual drum sanders work fine if you understand that they are not abrasive planers. 0.005" is a big bite with this type of machine. I use 80 grit on both drums 95% of the time. That distributes the...

    That Delta looks just like the Steel City my friend has and the General International I have, just different paint. Both his and mine have performed w/o complaint by the machine or us; everything...

    Well, my house is 60 years old. There are two pocket doors still from the original construction that work as well as when they first were installed. Granted, they don't get used frequently. But I...

    I've never heard an argument suggesting hardness and stability are related. VCF is known for being very stable. I don't think you'll have any problems as long as your stock is well acclimated and...

    I would seat the screws deep enough to putty over them. I have lots of pocket doors in my house. In 40 years (wow, I'm getting old) the only time I've ever had to remove the trim was when I...

    Monte, WM has a Toe Board accessory that is used to center the log vertically on the mill deck. I have one and it works well on logs up to the 10 ft length limit of my mill, but there is no way it...

    From everything you've said it sounds like you should buy a turbine rig.

    Nor is 6cfm very high; fine for a small gun doing small work, but I recommend you get a system that will handle your larger projects. That means a HVLP gun at some point where you'll need 10 scfm at...

    A large advantage of a conversion gun is being able to regulate pressure both to the cup and the gun, independently, and to extreme levels. Another is the air is cool unlike a turbine unit which...

    Several folks here use the Qualspray AM-6008 gun. It's a very versatile set up and can spray everything from water based dyes to ProClassic (w/o much thinning). I've had one for about 5 years now...

    Those horizontal marks in the first photo are from the tooling used to flatten the slab. I'm not sure what the cross grain marks are in the second photo; perhaps the same type of marks from the...

    Apple is one of the hardest fruitwoods I know of. It's difficult to mill and loves to twist and split when it dries. My planer protested when I planed some. Cherry and pear are far nicer to work...

    I've never seen a good reason to use spring joints. The argument about needing fewer clamps is false if you believe the glue manufacturers who tell you you need a clamp nearly as close together as...

    [QUOTE=Matt Roberts PA;3088224]No glue. The battens are screwed with 1.5" screws, each hand tightened. I'm rather confident they're tight.

    I managed to take a photo of the one board I oriented...

    Maple or birch iron on veneer tape will work well for the plywood edges. Both take paint well.

    If the boards for each leg have the same grain orientation it should be fine long term. But if one of the boards is QS and the others are plain sawn, or the other way around, they are going to fight...

    ProClassic should spray great with your airless rig. I really like Emerald Urethane Trim paint but it's an oil modified product, like BM's Advance, so whites are likely to yellow over time. That...

    His heating cycle must be more involved than what he told you or he's just lucky. I follow EBAC's drying schedule and often start with AD wood. Using their cycle the maximum heating rate is 25F /...

    I had that exact application in my kitchen remodel. When I built the kitchen 25 years ago I used paper backed veneer and glued it to the Melamine cabinet sides with contact cement. Never had a...

    You will be OK with any waterborne product and probably with any hand applied finish except lacquer. Oil based varnish will stink for a long time, however, even if not an explosion risk when hand...

    If you want structural strength I suggest you use Baltic birch plywood. It's almost universally available in 5 x 5 ft sheets, and 4 x 8' sheets by some suppliers.
