    For that garage door, I'd suggest using a jack lift opener (see Liftmaster). You can roll the door up within inches of the 10' ceiling, and you don't have a rail down the center of the garage getting...

    Excellent advice. I would just add that you might want to check the amperage on the existing RV circuit. If, for example, it is a 50A, then that location would make a nice small breaker box from...

    Thanks very much for all the input. I was naively thinking this was easier to do on a drill press than described here. I'm glad I checked before just trying something.

    John, I'll give you a call...

    Turning on a drill press

    I've never used a lathe before, but would like to make some handles for files and chisels. Is this something that can be done on a drill press? I have a nice Nova Viking drill press, and worry that...

    Good post, Bruce. Most home routers, while not as complex as your setup, do support a pretty simple "Guest Network" setup. That feature is specifically intended to allow WiFi access only through the...

    And let's not forget the generator in the bed needs to be fueled by something, so you'd need a canister for that fuel.

    <sarcasm on>
    Gee, maybe they could permanently mount this generator and fuel...

    The stock blade worked fine until I started resawing some oak logs. At that point it started not cutting straight anymore. I replaced it with a Lennox Trimaster 1/2" 3 tpi blade which has been...

    I have the Alpha, and like it. I have not used the Ambassador to compare, though. The differences seem to be that the Alpha has: 15"wheels instead of 14", 4" deeper table, nicer fence & rail system,...

    Personally I don't buy extended warranties on anything, unless I have some serious reason to believe it's likely to fail. In the case of my generator the answer would be no.

    Thanks for the input, everyone. Sounds like I ought to get Bob Lang's book and try to find some other plans to follow that I can adjust to turn it into the desk I want. I've never made a desk, so not...

    To confirm, Quartzite is a natural material, not man-made. And definitely harder than granite.

    I bought the PM 60HH about a year ago. To my understanding it's the same as the 60C, except with a helical cutterhead. It's been a great machine, and only required very minor adjustment when I first...

    Looking for Stickley Desk plans

    I've come to a conclusion that I'm not likely to be able to design this desk myself, so I'm looking for plans for the current Stickley Executive Desk, #2272. I have not been able to find plans for...

    I too love the asymmetric look of this table. I need to remind myself to do this once in a while, as my tendency is never to do it.

    Rubens Barrichello? He retired :D

    Actually I agree, I think Max V. has a really good chance, and I'm rooting for him. How about those sprint races? Looking forward to seeing those too.

    Here you go! The slide isn't a dovetail, it's just square shoulders. Not the strip along above the drawer, that holds it down so the drawer doesn't drop as you slide it out.

    My suggestion would be to do it yourself - that's why you have the tools. Get a rough 2x4x84" as cheap as you can, and practice with your jointer (I presume this is what you're having doubts with,...
