    I'm in a similar situation about the kinds of wood pieces I keep for later use. One thing I find helpful is that I have a box for small (24" or less long) leftover pieces of each species I use a lot...

    I've worked a fair amount with western red cedar for soundboards and I always thought it smelled nice, but I guess fragrance is in the nose of the be-smeller.

    I only use CA for non-structural type jobs, like gluing inlays and dots into holes. In these cases there is no mechanical load pushing on the glue joint, it's just fighting a very tiny amount of...

    I'd try a razor blade in a holder, like they use to scrape off windshield stickers.

    I'm to be the maker of this building, and I am not always on speaking terms with myself but I'll try to start negotiations off on the right foot. I have a conduit bender and have used it to make...

    Yes, surface mount electrical does seem like the best approach. Around here a new 14x28 or 14x32 can be delivered whole from the manufacturer, but I don't know who may be able or willing to move...

    Thank you all very much, that gives me a lot to work with. I'm hoping to make this building movable so that I can take it with me when (if) I build a house someday.

    Yes, I should go and look at how the folks who sell them do it. I am hesitant to waste their time by asking questions, but I'll try to find a polite way to go about it. I was planning to have some...
  9. Portable building foundation questions

    I have found that I am not going to be able to build a 2 car garage sized workshop building at my new location as I had intended, because a town water line runs right across the area and I can't put...

    I use a little ramp on the bandsaw when cutting small round pieces. I use 1/4" brass rod for tone rings on banjos and cut the scraps into less than 1/4" lengths to use for fretboard dots. I cut a...

    I have no trouble with the clips on my 19-38, though there was a bit of a learning curve at first. I wear 2XL or (when I can find them) 3XL size gloves. I can imagine that if the clip was made with...

    i think a 12" disc sander would be big enough to do the job accurately, as the actual area to be removed is only 4-1/2" long. This could be done without having to use the center of the disc, which...

    A 10mm Forstner is so close as to be functionally identical to a 25/64" and may be easier to find/cheaper.

    It sounds to me like you could drill the larger hole first and then drill a smaller hole the rest of the way through from the bottom of the big hole, and that would solve both problems.
  15. I would draw the line you want on each side of...

    I would draw the line you want on each side of the leg and then remove the wood on the disc sander, if you have a 12" or bigger. You're only taking off an average of 1/16" thick x 4-1/2" long, so by...

    I've been living for the last 20 years in a town of just under 2,000, most of whom I do not agree with politically but it's not a problem. It's 30 miles in either direction to Lowes or Home Depot,...

    I bought a used 788 a few months ago and too it off the stand right away. I keep mine on top of a cabinet out of the way, and when I want to use it I pick it up and move it onto a rolling...

    I've never had a robot vacuum, though I can see that they are cute. Those who use them extensively, what do you do to clean your stairs? My understanding is that they can't travel on stairs, and...

    Most of my income comes through PayPal, and I imagine they must have had my SSN for some time, though I can't recall. All of my transactions are written in my day-book, so I have pretty good records...

    Because the rocks are arranged in such tall skinny piles they will never look "right", because if they were load bearing actual pillars they would not be strong. There's a pizza place in town with...

    I'm sorry about your loss, and I'm sure this complication is frustrating. Up here the funeral laws/system are pretty messed up too, it doesn't seem right.

    That's what I do too, just have the blade higher than the wood, but a lot of people on this site say that the blade should be all the way up to reduce kickback potential. That idea seems bizarre and...

    I may get some stains or spalting, I expect, and that's okay. I'm not aiming to paint it, but a future buyer could paint it if they wanted to. As long as I can get it dry and stable to work with...

    Me either. When I have maple I sell it for $1 a board foot green or partially air dried. I have been cutting mainly ash the last few years since they've been dying, but still cutting some maple,...
