    I have no idea how those things work, but there are many different angle setting methods that won't give the same results. There is only one way to transfer an exactly accurate bevel to every edge,...

    Inflation has always been the answer to debt here, whether by spending more than comes in, or cutting taxes below what the government spends. Neither side seems to understand, or care much, but is...

    Another staircase design for when the available space is too tight for regular ones, is "Dancing Stairs". I have a very old book that tells in detail how to design, and lay them out. I built some...

    I have a pretty big pile of it for covering floors in old houses we work on. It gets leaned up against a wall, and develops a bow, but it will flatten back out on it's own if the bend is not too...

    None of these cuts were parallel to any side, nor were the shoulder cuts perpendicular to a side. The posts were leaning, so I had to mark lines where they needed to be cut. The old wood was good...

    Glue type won't matter much, or even if you use any with good fitting mortises and tenons. I don't use any building window sash, house doors, or shutters when replacing them in very old houses, just...

    I run my Centauro 24" 10% over normal speed when making shingles using a VFD. It will run for an hour at the time, and the motor never gets warm. That's through soft Cypress though, and never over...

    I recently used a no.8 to take a slight amount of twist out of some 12' long handrail pieces. I hold the plane in the plane I want to finish with, and it only hits the parts that need to come off. ...
