    I seriously doubt that it's something that's on the minds of folks in that area, including those who are in the logging business, at least so far. The level of this disaster has significantly higher...

    That's easy to check... ;) And you don't have to go into the crawlspace spelunking if you don't want to. Just measure the distance between the rows of fasteners on the top of the existing subfloor.

    Hopefully, the joist spacing is no more than 16" OC. I'd add a second layer of the Advantech with joints staggered from existing with glue and fasteners. As someone noted, the 1.25" Advantech (or the...

    Roger, I think this will be a situation where you'll need to evaluate the student's physical limitations directly so you can plan the activities to be productive, safe and fun. It may end up being a...

    Yes, I do believe it's perpetual for the original owner, but getting his input is a good idea to insure clarity.

    Things change, Jerome. We may not like it, but businesses sometimes have to reevaluate costs and how they are ramping, especially as the business and the market it plays in matures in various ways.

    For me, the high/low that the UniFence provides is a lot more important than being able to do really wide rips along the fence. That's not something that gets done all that often by most folks, I...

    Despite the language in the code, I think you are just fine because it's an existing staircase. You can't "stretch it" and you're just refacing it to look modern. As long as the rise/run is...

    Whatever decision I made between the two machines, the UniFence would stay on the one I picked to live in the shop for sure...and yea, a riving knife is a good thing.

    That's how I do it, too, Frank...check the reading before I start doing stuff and keep track relative to where it moves to as I'm working. (assuming I remember to do so...but that's a separate issue....

    I believe that the consideration at this point is that with so many used machines now entering new lives with new owners as compared to even a few years ago because of folks upgrading to the latest...

    It sounds like some more screws are needed and since you can do things from below, you can not only reinforce the connection between the original treads and the stringers, but if you do some math,...

    Long the lines of Frank's comments, overhead drops with some form of quick disconnect for a 10' hose can easily support multiple machines out in the middle during "woodworking sessions" and be hung...

    Kevin, not only did you do a magnificent job on that door, you get extra kudos for it being a Dutch, if the photo is being interpreted accurately! Bravo!

    I mounted the 120v Delta blower and Wynn filter on the wall of the gara...err...temporary shop...and did the same for the SDD. A word to the wise...check the bolts and seals on the actual blower from...

    I also bought the unit that Frank mentions and it's useful for showing relative air quality. I have no idea if it's "accurate" in a pure scientific way, but it serves a good visual purpose with both...

    Yea, I mentioned the inherent yellowing simply because I didn't want your SO to turn around and smack you up-side your head in a few years when it becomes noticeable. But Frank is spot on...you'll be...

    John, I think that will be a nice addition to your tool corral for sure. It's funny you mention the battery. Despite being "in an ecosystem" and already having several batteries, I always find myself...

    I actually like the inherent finger hold all the way around because of how they did a radiused recess of the core material. That's really great for serving purposes which is frankly, how I'd use that...

    I seriously doubt that's an enforceable thing...and if true, I'd be reluctant to patronize them.

    Did you test and deal with squeaks and creaks before applying the new material over the old? The carpet likely would have masked the noise a lot. Now you don't have that benefit and the underlying...

    Pre-grain raise isn't always practical for this kind of situation. So sand well and clean. Apply a coat of the finish and let it dry thoroughly. Use 320 or 400 paper to knock off the nibs, clean...

    One thing to consider...many "cutting boards" like this are not really "users". They are decorative by their nature and also great to use as serving pieces a la charcuterie. For actual prep work, I...
