    Dunno your routers, but some are built to blow air from the motor on to the area where the bit is making dust. If the router is being used handheld in the common position, this means the air is...

    Don't make this more expensive that it needs to be. Make your own box from scrap wood. Make each one just a bit larger than the cutter it holds, and don't worry about foam. The cutter will rattle a...

    I think taping a penlight to a router is likely to keep falling off. Here's two other possible approaches:

    1) Wear a LED headlamp. Clunky, but better than nothing.

    If it dried without end-checking, it is likely not eucalyptus.

    But as a general rule, red lumber goes to brown over the years.

    I didn't build one, but I looked at it pretty closely. It is a clever design -- height adjustable for a growing kid, but it looks sturdy. IIRC, the one I looked at was clear-finished baltic...

    Cold creep in modified PVA glues?

    Ordinary wood glue, for instance Titebond original, is infamous for cold creep. Does anybody know if the modified PVAs like Titebond II or Titebond III creep less?

    You might make a rough drawing of the dresser, estimate what pieces of plywood you need, and lay those out on a 4x8 sheet of plywood. You're likely to have to buy plywood by the whole sheet. For a...

    I made a plywood box. Simple, sturdy, and inexpensive. While I was at it, I put an acrylic window in the side of the box, so I can see when the bin needs emptying.

    The laminates have to be thin enough to bend over the curve you've chosen. Without telling us the radius of your bend, you're asking a question which cannot be answered.

    The spiral router bits I buy are carbide. Are the end mills you're looking at carbide? If not, they'd have to be a lot less expensive to have the same life-cycle cost.

    You could use a standard cup hinge, like the ones on most kitchen cabinets. The screws in the jamb are set back 1.5" from the back of the door, which would put them well out of the redwood.
