    It was the MS change to Edge that converted me to a MAC. I cant provide technical reasons, but it did not seem to provide any additional features useful to me.

    Nice and clean look to it. I've made a couple with slightly wider tapered legs, because I thought the standard design left feet too small. But I see these look perfect proportion.

    I meant the sheet metal screws previously referred to. I dont know if it was the green-ness or the end-grain that was the problem but all four screws pulled out at once with a very slight catch,...

    Thanks for the ideas. Handles look a lot nicer than the usual options.

    Yes on the sink cutout. You can sometimes find them at Habitat ReStore, as well as a kitchen remodeling shop. The shop I went to had a pile of them that they kept just for this purpose -$2-3 each. ...

    I had one for a long time. short answer: no, look for something newer and better. Its not really a job site saw. It just looks like one. I think the major components would be too wobbly to survive...

    I looked on eBay and if they're the same ones we're talking about, a Tideway 45 degree chamfer bit is around $5 for 1/4" and $12 for 1/2". Whoa. That's hard to beat, or trust.

    If you're determined to use maple, I would suggest plain maple. Its the color contrast you want, not the competing grains, I think. The design is too clean and simple to distract with the wild...

    My first go-to for router bits is Eagle-America, especially if I'm looking for something with specific specs. They offer two product lines: the made in USA line, and the MLCS (China) line for less.

    I think twice about applying lawn pesticides because I miss the large clouds of fireflies of my youth.

    I have both Jorgensens and Besseys, and slightly prefer the Besseys. But really I'd buy whichever of any of those brands I found the best sale on at the time.
