    Power tool? Definitely my biscuit joiner. Need to sell that thing.

    We went today. 10 years ago, I went every year for a few years, and noticed the quality of the vendors declining. Granted Lee Valley was there, as was SawStop. My buddy wants to buy a cabinet saw....

    For bottle stoppers, CA or glossy poly. Be careful you don't glue the stopper to the mandrel. I like to buff once the finish dries.
