    You can inlay pieces of hardwood in the back of the drawer front where screws are going to be.

    Yeah, a real zero-clearance fence prevents the tiny part rotating into the path of the blade.
    Also -- blue tape. Stick a piece of blue tape on the tiny part before you cut it. Use the tape to...

    That's good. Every plunge router I've ever owned has had some offset. But then the existence of the adjustment still argues for the bearing-guided approach -- there's less to go wrong or get out...

    Unlike you, I'd expect that the bearing-guided Keller is more precise. The bushing is connected to the router base, which may have some offset from the centerline of the router bit. I don't see it...

    Rubio has a big collection of stains. Final sanding at 150 might be to leave lots of scratches for the pigment particles to lodge in.

    John, wood sanded to only 150 grit feels rough to me. Does Rubio magically make that rough wood smooth?

    One possibility would be to glue a block -- maybe 2x2x6 -- on the inside face of the crossbar at the middle. You bolt up though it into your threaded insert in the top.

    That table top is so heavy it counterbalances any vertical forces on the table edge. As I run the numbers on your design, if the trestle foot is 24" wide, a 280 pound person could sit on the edge...

    You don't need a grid like that. The top is 2.5" thick of solid walnut. It is way stronger than the grid. The top of each trestle should be a crossbar somewhat like you've drawn the foot. ...

    Structurally, you'd be okay with a "post" which is 7.8" wide. But as I look at your drawing, 7.8" looks too skinny compared to the massive top. This is just an esthetic judgement -- your taste...

    Iíd say that the variance should be what the homeowners like. It doesnít matter if there might be some standard or not.

    The furnace was a simple rectangle with no scribing, right? That's how I'd build the cabinet: simple rectangle with no scribing. The friend lived with that for years, so should be fine with that...

    Just round over the edges of the feet a bit. There's no functional reason to add plastic or metal tips to bed feet. And they look weird; the nice wood leg looks like it is perched on this other...

    Sugatsune? I thought they are Japanese. At any rate, I've bought Sugatsune hardware -- hinges, lid supports, and such -- from regular online hardware suppliers. So maybe you can find the draw...

    Yeah, Blum slides are just gone. As a result, I've now used undermounts from several other suppliers. The drawer box dimensions are all the same, as are the notch and the bore in the back. The...

    McMaster-Carr (mcmaster.com) has a big selection of draw latches. That's the search term you want there. You can probably find a replacement for the OEM ones. Maybe not a 100% replacement, but...

    Isn't it just flooring applied to the wall? It'd be engineered flooring -- that is, thick veneer on plywood-ish substrate. In the flooring world, those chamfers are called microbevels. Dunno if...

    I repair hundred-year-old built-ins with slick tape. It is UHMW tape 1/32Ē thick with peel-and-stick adhesive on the back. It is very slippery, and the thickness sometimes compensates for wear. Works...

    You might even veneer three faces of the leg, so you don't see any glue lines at all.

    I'm pretty sure you're not going to like seeing that glue line. One fix you might consider is to taper the leg the way you want, and then apply a layer of veneer on that face of the leg to cover...

    You might also consider burying the rear of the fridge into the wall. If the wall is not an exterior wall, and not load-bearing, this isnít too difficult.

    Fridge manufacturers usually give you a spec for how much clearance they want for airflow. I wouldnít cheat on that.

    But if you donít like the projection on the unit youíre looking at, look for a...
