    The only situations where I think that might be helpful is on construction jobs where one guy is running the miter saw and six other guys are giving him callouts. For furniture and cabinet making the...

    I wouldn't spend any effort on trying to salvage a $10 sheet of OSB. Cut it out and throw in a new piece.

    Actually have made them for restaurants I've done the millwork for. Nothing fancy. Just glue up a panel out of whatever is available and cut to shape.

    So that would translate, theoretically, to a .006" discrepancy in anything coming off of it. Would that have an adverse effect on any of your work? Could you even measure it if you tried? I can't...

    I use a 12" Delta Disc sander for these types operations. The adhesive backed paper and machined disc seem ao much more precise than a fluttering belt.

    I prefer the Jorgies. Meynards used to put these on sale every once in a while. I would always snatch up a dozen if I was in the area (we don't have Meynards near Delaware). My absolute faves were...

    I can't see any real use for that outside of smallish veneers. Might make some interesting bookmatches. But mostly, I see waste.

    Oh, and their Icon brand is pretty sweet for the price. I'll definitely be looking at them when I'm in the market for some new grease monkey stuff.

    Some mechanics stuff.
    Deadblows.
    3/8" cordless ratchet, I think this is a gem of a deal for the guy that wrenches enough to need a powered ratchet, but will never get paid to do it.

    I've never worked in a shop that didn't allow music or talk radio. I've never seen it be a problem. That other stuff is a work ethic thing and phones aren't the problem, the employees are.

    I guess I just assumed we were talking about glue bottles being refilled from a 5 gallon bucket.

    Try going to a restaurant supply store. Screw bottle sizes are standardized and they'll have many different condiment bottles.

    I would glue it in place with wood glue. After routing just split the MDF of and sand clean. Pictured is a similar operation I do for clamping cauls.

    Best to develop a habit of looking at any cutter before venturing near. There are just to many noises in a shop. I just assume that every blade is always spinning. Relaxing on a cabinet saw just...

    Speedtape vs Spray Adhesive.

    Some jobs call for quick and easy edgebanding onsite. Who has done both and what were the pros and cons of each? I've got my own thoughts, but still can't figure out which one is less bad.

    No, accurate machining beats a handplane any day. CNCs prove that point.

    I've sold a couple of old bikes and some tools in the past couple of days. These were items that I'd listed many times over the years. I couldn't keep up with the inquiries. I'm sure the lockdown...

    Not sure if it's a sign of the times, but just hearing this question gets my hackles up.

    I think that's a perfectly safe assumption. Just like I expect a Ruth Chris steak to always be better than a Sizzler steak. The economics of the situation dictate that the borgs are always going to...

    You had me at Waterfalls. Great piece. It could have easily felt massive and overwhelming, but your use of scales and division of space feels elegant balanced. Then the grain, color, and pattern just...

    If your not seeing the shortcomings, you probably won't really appreciate the difference. Minor amounts of flex that leave less than perfect seams, end grain that requires substantial sanding to...
