    Virginia Tech has good information on the design and construction of a solar kiln.

    I just had some plain Jane looking mahogany tear out on my drum sander, hard as that is to believe. No idea what species it is, but it's not African nor Sapele. The only way I could get it smooth...

    Hi Rich,

    I've had cats for 40 years and never had one scratch a piece of finished furniture. Unfinished wood - definitely, but never anything with paint or varnish on it. Unless those cats have...

    This idea should work well since I need to add wood plates behind the brackets anyway to space out the handrail beyond the window casing part way up the staircase. Thanks very much.

  5. Anyone know of a removable handrail system?

    I've been asked to install a new handrail on a very narrow set of stairs in an old house. The owner wants the handrail to be removable so they can bring bedding, etc. up/down the stairs. My first...

    I have routinely used 60 grit (and sometimes 36 grit) on tabletops that have a lot of cleanup required to get uniformly flat. I use a hand plane to take off the worst of it, but once I'm down to...

    I have both those sanders and neither leaves swirl marks, so save your money on thinking new ones are the solution. The thing that really caught my eye in your work description is that you move the...

    The OneFinity X-50 Woodworker has a 32 x 32" cut area. It costs $2329 with the controller. Add a display, or spare laptop like I did, a Makita palm router, the X-Y-Z probe, and a joypad and you are...

    Hard to tell for sure but that blade looks to have a high tpi count, far more than I would use for sawing veneer.

    Many of us have found two to be a good compromise. A larger one with a wider, aggressive blade for ripping and resawing, and a smaller one for everything else. FWIW, my smaller one gets most of the...

    IMO there's no reason you can't make due with a chainsaw for cutting out bowl blanks. A bandsaw makes them nice and round, but that's not a major requirement, especially with a big powerful lathe. ...

    You wouldn't want to use the 1.3 tpi blade on stock thinner than 1/1.3 = 0.77", and it's a good idea to always have 2 teeth in the wood at all times, so 2 x 0.77" = 1.44". I never use anything...

    A cup in the infeed table is definitely not ideal, but if you are getting acceptable results then it's not an issue. How much are you talking about? 0.002" would be a non-issue to me, 0.010" would...

    The Peterson Swingmill has a 10" radius blade so cutting 12" wide stock might not be the best comparison. But here are two comparisons of a BS vs Swingmill cutting 2 x 4's.

    It lasts a pretty long time if you put the bottle in a quart mason jar that has rice in the bottom. The rice absorbs the water in the air. Silica gel would likely work even better. I've had...

    The 1" x 1.3 tpi Woodmaster CT is hard to beat. It will resaw like a maniac, and rip and cut gentle curves without complaint by it or you. It's substantially cheaper than the 2 tpi version, and far...

    I use a plastic autobody spreader and spread it as thin as possible while still getting a complete film. Squeeze out mess is a non-issue when it's that thin, a few bubbles here and there.

    One part product - no mixing, good open time, low creep, MUCH higher strength at 150 F than yellow glues, and it's completely waterproof. I've used it on several MDF skins on ladder back door frames....

    If the compressor can't keep up with the gun, or the gun you have to use to accommodate the compressor doesn't meet your actual needs, you will wish you had bought the turbine unit.
