    I have the 3/8" Blue Spruce and also left and right skews. I don't use either very much - I find that I can clean out a half blind socket well with a narrow regular chisel. If you want to save some...

    I'm no glass expert but I'm pretty sure you can't cut tempered glass - it will break in little pieces. You could grind a small amount off with a diamond wheel but that's about it.

    I like this answer. What I often try to do is route the profile on a large piece of wood and then cut off what I need. But Wes' solution is even better. If you can't screw it, glue it and then rip...

    One more suggestion: You said you use hardboard for the bottom. Why not make the bottom from some nice wood? You have it captured in a groove in the sides so you're okay for wood movement (just...

    About the only way you could make that work is is you used quarter sawn lumber for the top. Quarter sawn doesn't expand and contract as much as plain sawn lumber. [A side note: I've found that...

    Just a mathematics comment. If 50% of the population gets the virus, that's 163 million. If 1% of those cases results in death, that's 1.63 million people. Still a lot, however.

    I tried that Minwax water based wipe on finish and didn't like it. You used to be able to order oil based wipe on from outside CA but I don't know if that's still possible.

    Saudi Arabia is hurting with the price of oil so low. They run a big annual budget and I think I read that their reserves (money in the bank) are somewhere about $500 billion. If they spend that...

    The Saudis face a problem. They have a lot of oil but the world is moving away from fossil fuels (independent of the Corona virus) and that's going to create a glut of oil in the world. There are...

    I just hope that when all this is over, people can say "See, I told you it wasn't going to be so bad."

    That's better than "It was worse than what the experts said."
