    We use titebond II for almost everything....full cure is 78 hours? I've seen guys sanding doors in the afternoon they clamped up in the morning, not the recipe for success. I like to glue my rails...

    Be safe. No tool has the potential to put more cutter in the wood. I don't like push sticks, feels more like playing shuffle board than proper stock control. Feeders are great, feather boards,...

    There's some really excellent interlocking metal options out there too, I never linked any of that because its somewhat fussy to install, there's an old fine home building article on exactly how to...

    All the shops I've been in use rough or hit and miss depending on species, availability, timing, usually get one edge ripped on the hit and missed too presently. Hard to make doors flat using s3s, I...

    I don't like exterior doors with no mechanical connection between rails and stiles. A stub tenon is not a mechanical connection, even a deep one. I'd rather cut the stub tenons/panel grooves to 5/8"...

    I'd say skip the router bit adaptor, that machine doesn't spin fast to make proper use of router bits.

    I used several 27's and they each had a solid quill assembly for each spindle size. They like to be stuck until you turn to get a dead blow then drop out and break the pulley assembly. So watch for...

    Could probably attach a scotch bright to a 1/4 sheet square sander and have at it. Or hot melt glue a scotch bright to a spent hook and loop pad, that I've done.

    I wouldn't go thinner than 1 1/4" personally, given the over hang, at 3/4" thats going to want to curl and warp. You don't need bread board ends on a thick top, but you could use them if its a look...

    I make plywood t's out of two 4" rips of plywood long enough to exceed the top on both edges, lets me get clamps under and over. You can run stopped splines in easily with a router and 1/4" slot...

    Could work if the frame stock is thick enough and the panels will flex. I like the clamp it flat a few days option, maybe its cauls to let both faces breath a bit? See where it goes? If its a...

    Place I'm at currently has a couple of W&H's that work well enough and are easy to set up, we don't do quite enough molding work consistently enough to justify the expense and floor space of a bigger...

    I've had to make lots of crown on a shaper, its not usually my preferred option if a molder is available, but on short runs or at busy times I've done it. Setting up a 5 head molder can take longer...

    I would do the jointer and save for a replacement planner. In fact I did exactly that. Not worth a Byrd head on that machine. Had one for a few years, cut quality was excellent with sharp knives,...

    The wood is going to move, your adhesive has to let it. I'd be looking at either a polyurethane or silicone for adhesive. Something like 3M 5200 might also be a good adhesive choice if you go the...
