    So, I took advice above and used the Domino to remove the Domino loose tenons, and replaced them with pieces of sapele, with the best grain match I could find. Came out decent. Didn't mention the...

    The plan is to screw it in from the base.

    I'm going to try to do the color match, mostly for the challenge. She has had the base for a very long time, and likes it, but I agree, not a fun task...

    Just sayin, I have seen this happen:
    433872

    Made for a lot of work on a Friday night. Didn't end terribly well.

    Thanks, Andrew. Very logical.

    I thought I'd be heading down this road (which really, with this piece, is quite easy to do with mechanical fasteners, so that will be my approach.

    I have never...

    I've worried about this too. I'm going to start with a very dark stain, and see where it goes. I may then spray several coats of a toner to go darker still.

    I'm not fond of that dark color, but...

    +1

    I actually turn on my cyclone with the ZCI removed and shoot compressed air into it. The displaced sawdust gets vacuumed right up into the cyclone.

    The most annoying part for me is clearly...

    Derek:

    Even though I use a respirator until my Dylos meter reads back to ambient particle level counts, I absolutely turn on my two Jet air cleaners while I am generating dust. And I do have a...

    I was thinking the same thing, Jim, but was wondering if it would even be necessary. Clearly if the pine and walnut moved at different rates, it absolutely does.
  9. Do I need to account for wood movement for this?

    The LOML has another project. An old, pine rolling taboret cabinet needs a larger top, and it needs to match other dark furniture. So I built a walnut new top for it, and need to attach that to the...

    I couldn't agree more. This weekend I actually had to replace the plastic/rubber piece on the bottom of my Rotex 150. What a PIA. Took the whole staff at Woodcraft, viewing two YouTube videos, and...

    This brought back nice memories of when my son and I built his "car" for the Pinewood Derby. Using way too much of my MIT education, the car had a ridiculously low amount of drag and friction, and...

    Mark:

    Please check back in a couple of years to let us know how the Sikkens Cetol Marine holds up. I face a similar relentless sun issue in Florida, and am always looking for a durable outdoor...
  13. How to prevent underside of projects from being marred while spraying

    OK. This problem chronically drives me nuts.

    I've tried many ways to support boards, furniture, etc... while spraying in my spray booth. All have proved to have disadvantages so the bottom of...

    I'm guessing at this point, but maple, padauk, and Peruvian walnut, I think.

    I find that a 3M P100 plus two very good Jet air cleaners is the best way to work for me. I can measure the particles in the air of my shop with a particle meter, and having the air cleaner is...

    Going by that chart, I should have been able to do that 8 inch radius curve with my 1 inch blade. But clearly it couldnít.

    YMMV I guess.

    When I get a chance Iíll run another piece of scrap...

    That's really interesting. But aren't all blades wider than the kerf they are making for a circle cut on a bandsaw?

    That was originally going to be my game plan, for no other reason then it made the board lighter, and lighten the load on the router. But after that scalloping, I went straight to the router.

    I did use it for alignment, as the final panel was wider than my wide belt sander. And it was very effective. Just very light sanding, and the center joint is not noticeable by feel, or sight.

    The pivot is way forward in the picture. Thatís where you start the cut and move the board/pivot point into the blade.

    Iíll try your suggestion and see what happens with the cut.

    Really interesting idea. Never thought of that. That's why I ask smart, experienced people here.

    Boy, I wish. No chance.

    You know, this is the second time I have done this kind of screwup in the past two weeks. How far from the edges do people typically place the dominos. I wanted them...
