    Before you commit to catalyzed finishes, research their health hazards. Conversion varnishes depend upon formaldehyde. 2K urethanes depend upon isocyanates. Those are both very hard on the human...

    It depends. For instance, I do final sanding on drawer interiors before gluing them up, because sanding those inside corners is difficult. But I do final sanding on the outside after glue-up,...

    This country in three months?

    Health officials are not sure, but they seem hopeful that if you survive a covid19 attack you get some sort of immunity to another attack, and you don't carry the disease to give to somebody else. ...

    Pretty darn nice!

    What did you do to get all that stucco and mortar off the planks? That stuff would destroy cutting edges in short order.

    Two-part bleach may well do what you want. However, my experience is that it soaks into the wood to spread sideways, and wicks under masking tape. So keeping it exactly where you want it may be a...

    Me, I'm a pretty skilled woodworker, but I am intimidated by metal working. I'd seriously consider making Stickley's iron hoops from wood. I'd try either of two methods. One would be steam...

    I can't imagine that the radius on the inside face of the staves changes from top to bottom. I'd bet it is constant. Both Stickley and you can make that without crazy efforts. You can use that...

    That is really nice!

    I'm wondering about the surrounding context. In the pic labeled GM Angle, it looks like there are more of these dilapidated ex-garage structures on the right. In most...

    I have a pair of full progressive safety glasses. They work just fine.

    You may not see much online about progressives and bifocals because there's a fitting issue which is difficult to manage...

    I've been using one from Woodhaven for twenty years. It works well. Unlike the OP's template, this one has all the holes exactly where you'd think they should be. Do use a plunge router -- a...

    I don't like the feel of sidemount slides used as undermount. When the drawer is opened the slides flex, so the drawer sags or bounces.

    Blum does make a hinge which they say has "zero...

    My experience is that a driveway broom should be a push broom with fairly stiff bristles. That moves fairly large piles on a rough surface. It also scrubs wet leaves up from the surface. For a...

    Every dado stack I've met does that. The theory is that the tips at the edges score the wood so that the chippers in the middle remove wood cleanly.

    So what you want is an old cast iron saw, not because of functional shortcomings with modern saws, but because the old cast iron saws look better to you. No argument there.

    I'd not been aware of those clamps. Do they really work? My first instinct would be to worry that tightening the clamps would pull them out of the groove by delaminating the MDF they suggest.

    A floor applicator on a ceiling? My mental picture of a floor applicator is a squeegee-ish blade with a mop handle so it can be used while standing. Does that work overhead?

    True, they offer big overlay. Unfortunately they have a huge gap between the back of the door and the front of the casework 3/16 and it cannot be adjusted out. If the door is only seen from the...
