    This is what I have done, and it worked out well, although I probably shorted myself in the beginning by taking only one third of their walnut and cedar (I now ask for one half). I saw their logs...

    I have 4' spacing on my trusses, and my ceiling (in the shop). I used 26 ga. galvanized steel roofing panels (which I had just removed from a roof) to cover my ceiling. A friend and I put up the...

    Wood Heat

    I heat my 1000 sq ft shop with an inside freestanding woodstove. I have a sawmill, so firewood from slabs is always available. I guess my concrete floor acts as a heat sink because overnight inside...

    I know ppb's are worse in hackberry than walnut. My experience with walnut and the white oak family is that primarily the sapwood is vulnerable - hackberry is totally vulnerable. I don't have...

    Pull or push - depends on blade

    I did almost all of my early woodworking on a Montgomery Ward RAS. They supplied a rather coarse, positive angle blade with the new saw. I always pushed because it just worked better and caused...

    Under-slab ducting might be less problematic for you if you went directly to the table saw and ran a separate line along the wall (above the floor) for the outside machines. . . . just a thought.

    I put 6" PVC S&D and electrical conduit under the slab in a channel cut in the dirt, with a large quantity of base rock surrounding the pipes (as well as under the whole slab). The building is on a...

    Thanks, someday I'll get brave and try a load of green oak in the kiln. When drying 18 per cent or lower, I haven't noticed much quality difference in (less than full) loads partially blocked or the...

    Thanks for your very explicit response (it is clear). I have a V.T. kiln designed to dry 12' length lumber, but have never cut enough 12' boards to fill the kiln to its 1000 sq ft capacity. Would...

    Cody,
    You say you go directly to the kiln with oak in the summer. What steps do you take to keep from drying too fast?

    I used 6" metal heat duct pipe, 26 ga, and got it (and most of the fittings) very inexpensively from a company that manufactures it close to where I live. After I explained why I needed it, the...

    Thanks, this was my most ambitious project to date. Mitered doors are a lot more work than rail & stile (those just slip together if you do the millwork correctly). Without wifey, I wouldn't have...

    Works for me, but then, I don't use it much. I think the spindle sander is one item where you don't have to get the very best, and with this one you don't have to maintain an iron top.
