    So what will you do with the replacement when it comes? Chances are they will not want it back.

    Did you make the cabinets from MDF? If so, plan on some water spilling in the sink base. It will destroy an MDF floor in that cabinet. Waterproof it really well, and the sides too while you're in...

    Timber Frame

    Here's a pic of a joint I made for my brother's garage a few years ago. As you can see, he's putting the space to good use.

    There's a picture of our dad walking down the road, he's long gone now. ...

    Thanks Mark, I have one similar, but yours looks better.

    Larry, a 10" radius, you mean with a 20" blade! I'm guessing you mean a 5" radius. Plunging into a 10" saw blade sounds scary, horizontal...

    We had 2 areas done with 3/4" Oak. The subfloor is not real flat and you can feel it a bit if you look for it. Putting a golf ball on it shows the unevenness big time. But unless you notice it there...

    Those shavings might clump and cling in your ductwork or hose. Might be better to position a cardboard box to catch them.

    Whether professional or amateur a fork truck is not always used wisely. If the ground is not very flat and smooth it is really easy to have the load fall off the side. Those forks flex a lot. If you...

    Ok, that's a fine tool, but I can't help myself from improving it, at least in my head.

    The doors in the knee space hide an electrical area with a power strip.

    The top is granite.
