    I'm surprised this is the only lid that has warped. By gluing the lid to the box you have made it impossible for the lid to expand/contract as the RH changes. Of course, it will anyway, but since...

    I've never used it but Minwax makes a waterbased wipe on polyurethane. That should be available in CA. Waterlox H2OLox should be available there, too.

    If you don't have to use a wipe on finish...

    There is a product called "weathered" or something similar that is supposed to make new wood look like old wood. Rustoleum and others I think make it. You mght want to consider trying one of them...

    Same as Prashun. If you want no color change, and even the look of no finish at all, then use Enduro Clear Poly in the matte or flat sheen. Two or three coats looks like no finish at all. The can...

    Same as Darcy; nearly everything I cut on my 14" Delta with riser is with a 3/8" x 3 or 4 tpi blade. I have sliced 10" wide veneer with the 3 tpi version so if it can do that it can cut those 8"...

    You could remove the veneer in the area where the hinge holes are with a dado blade or on the router table. Then fill the holes you drilled wrong with Bondo and glue a new piece of veneer in place. ...

    I recommend you check out the Bosch ROS65VC. Very smooth (VC = Vibration Control), great onboard dust collection, and comes with an adapter for connection to a vac. You can buy it with either the...

    Thanks Warren. Never heard of Goudey, but I'm ignorant of many things according to my wife. That stuff must have a really slow flash rate if you can stand back 3 ft.

    By golly, here's Goudey: ...

    What that tells me is you have a spring with a pretty low spring constant. If so, it also tells me the saw was not set up right at the factory because you should not have to be making physical...

    Yikes, that saw is supposed to be able to run a 1-1/4" blade. Manufacturers routinely overstate the capability of their bandsaws, but that's a little ridiculous. 22K psi should give you pretty good...

    Anything with ammonia in it, like most household cleaners contain, is really bad on most finishes, especially shellac. Lacquer is not a very chemically durable finish, actually, unless it's a...

    If you send me those sap free boards, Sam, I'd be happy to replace them with ones having some great sap streaks in them.

    My only suggestion would be to bleach those areas you want to look like...
  14. 2 HP is not enough for efficient (read enjoyable)...

    2 HP is not enough for efficient (read enjoyable) resawing or veneer slicing, at least on anything more than about 8" wide. That would eliminate the one Rikon for me. I don't know what either saw...

    I do pretty much like Rob said, except I don't prefinish plywood panels. I size the panels no more than 1/16" undersize and run a bead of glue down in the groove. That way the glue gets onto all...

    If you are using plywood panels I would glue them into your frames and then finish everything after glue up. I've done it that way for years w/o issue. Only when I do floating solid panels do I...

    Why is that sad? To me that is the correct solution if you want that look. It may be faux rustic, but at least it will be stable and not self destruct in half a year. What's sad is...

    Besides Hoadley's excellent book you also should study a couple of furniture construction books. There's no need to painfully relearn what furniture makers before you already figured out. Go to...

    What are your needs? What's a great choice for one person might be a poor one for another with different needs. What is it you want to do that your current saw can't or isn't good at?

    Now that's a clever approach, Joe, and could easily be adapted to what you made Jim. Just cut away maybe 1/2" of your piece between the extrusion and blade and screw a piece of 1/2" wood, UHMW, etc....

    I try to do the glue up all at once. I guess I'm not good enough to make perfect laterally aligned mortises in the mating parts with perfect fitting loose tenons so I often need a little wiggle room...

    Why can't you just put a piece over the front of the fence, and then just slide it sideways as the end gets chewed up? I have no clue about sliders so maybe that's not possible, but there ought to...

    Nice build along Jim. I just bought some 5/4 pine, too, to build some shutters. You are right, not easy to find and expensive when you do. But cedar was double the price of pine, so pine it was. ...

    Loose tenons almost make cutting joinery fun, especially when you cut them on a horizontal router mortiser. If you plan to use them often take a look at my machine, with free plans to build one.

    Yes, a lambwool pad.

    Take some of the cutoffs that have the BLO on them and try the poly on it to make sure you like it before doing the whole ceiling.
