    In my misspent youth I worked as a tinsmith before discovering wood. That bit of ductwork connects to my 2 1/2" flex to the Oneida unit. Works ok.

    Albert
    Did you steam bend those ribs or lam bend them? Nice work either way.

    Now you want boatbuilding skills.

    Don't connect the top to the sides at all. If the top is just one piece it will stay flatter. Allow room for it to expand and contract by making it overhang the sides.

    I can rip 27" which suits me fine but if I want to cut a piece of trim from a longer piece I wish the fence was easier to remove.

    The Heart of the shop

    For some the heart of the shop is the table saw, for others it is the lathe or the workbench, or maybe the computer or the dog or the easy chair.

    For me it's the workbench, how about you?

    Sure sure, only rout straight, but what about complex curved table legs or boat parts? Maybe it's time to try to a more advanced technique. It's really simple and lets you work with imperfect wood....

    Last summer I took my exterior doors to the shop one at a time and repaired as needed and repainted. Good to go for many years more. Would not have been very successful fixing in place.

    Brian
    If you need rot resistance you will need to test for open tyloses. Other than that you will just need to examine the wood for grain and color.

    We might need Myth Busters for this one. A tabletop or a cabinet door may benefit from balancing the construction of both sides, but an outside door does not experience life like an inside object. (I...

    I'm a couple years ahead of you but I'm planning on another 10 years. Not reducing any machines but not getting any more either, just the odd tool or accessory. Working thru the wood and...

    Just a caution on the table. To make it work as planned, first make a mockup of cardboard and tape to get the size right for the items to be displayed.

    This works fine. It's just a piece of Purpleheart taped to my mini table.

    Actually automotive belts are very good quality. Due to very high volume and very high expectations they get way more engineering and quality control than woodworking machinery.

    That small piece of Purpleheart is taped on to accommodate some parts that were slightly curved in two directions.

    You may be able to taper a piece of 1/8" x 3/4" steel by hammering the top thinner than the bottom. Or there are blacksmith hobbyists that could make hoops. You may have to pay cash or pizza and...

    Looks like the top shrunk about 1/2" and is only showing at one side. Guessing the other end is similar. I'm guessing that the wood has shrunk (shrinked) and will probably not grow all the way back...

    I stop my table saw in 1 second without a resistor. This is fine per the VFD manufacturer's rep. It's another brand.
