    It is quite possible that the wax is pulling out mineral oil that hasn’t (and won’t) dry.

    While it is a theoretic danger, I gotta say, I abuse a lot of my work, and have never had a hot cup of tea hurt anything. The irony is I wanted THIS one to be bulletproof. I know from epoxies that...

    +1 on maple, soft or hard. The minor pains in milling and working with it are precisely the reasons it works well for cabinets.

    Paraffin wax, Mineral oil, mineral spirits, and naphtha are all hydrocarbons in their pure form. They were the purest form of “oil” as we think of it. They differ in viscosity and (I believe)...

    You can try to heat the wood, to set the sap, then shellac it to seal the surface. But like any soft liquid trapped inside, it may eventually ooze until fully dried over years, so plan on cleaning...

    You'd get a more accurate answer by inquiring about a specific model of a tool.

    I also agree about the smell. If it smells like a good scotch, or creamy then it’s white oak. If it is vinegary then it’s red. The vinegar odor will decrease in old red oak, but the...

    FWW did a review of cordless trim routers recently. Worth a read. I ended up picking up the Bosch. It is not suitable for plunge work, but for edge work, and even dovetailing, it's fantastic. The...
