    Figure out how to connect your two track sections together so that they are straight enough for your purposes. On my track saw, the joiners don't assure straightness. A long straightedge is...

    You can use any plastic bag whose mouth is large enough to fit over the end of the canister. The hose clamp gathers the extra material and squishes it against the canister. Heavy-duty garbage...

    If you cut a little off each end of the logs like John suggests, also look to see how much heartwood you have. Young walnuts are notorious for having a lot of sapwood.

    I'm not seeing the difference between the first two photos.
    Does the .5 degrees happen because the table turns? Or is it because there's left-right slop along the whole table, and if you push it...

    I have a DeWalt 611 trim router. It is corded. Like the cordless DeWalt Ray cites, the 611's baseplate for standard template guides is an extra-cost option. I hadn't realized that until I built...

    I'm afraid that band-aiding weatherseal on to a door won't work very well. Instead, select a good weatherstrip, and design your door to use it. For exterior doors, two good schemes are kerf-in...

    I too run full-kerf blades on my 1978 1.5 hp Unisaw. No problem. But you don't have to believe us, you can run your own experiment at a lower price point than "a couple hundred on decent plywood...
