    Some furniture stores have ...or used to have their own shops that sold only copies of old pieces of merit. To make the
    stuff more "authenticky" ....and track "who botched this?" They had a policy...

    In reading grain to see in what direction the stock should be run ,many will look only at the growth rings....and sometimes
    that's all you can see. But you can also check best direction with a...

    I agree that's often the case. But I think it's more what cutters are commonly used . Shaper guys often have more steel
    knives than carbide. Few shops have ANY steel router bits, and with careful...

    I think it only makes sense when the wood is not dry. And sometimes it doesn't even make sense then, as I have seen
    wood change color so drastically while stored that even after planing off a heavy...

    I see no value in multiple passes ,it can work ,but is certainly not reliable. Two passes take twice as long as one pass.

    It would be easier to get the right solution if we knew how it was to be used. If the strips will need to be bent, you will
    have to specify straight with grain cuts or they might just break in use....

    Sometime used office furniture places have good chairs. I've got one that has a lot of adjustments, the kind you see in old
    movies. One foot push-off, and and just a few seconds later I'm on the...

    [QUOTE=Kevin Jenness;3089618]If your profile cutter(s) takes a full height cut you can eliminate tearout by overcutting 1/16" or so- if you want to end up with 2 1/4" width start with 2 5/16"....

    I guess new paint is good. But if you listen to real estate people ,yeah, they always mention "neutral colors". What that
    really means is "you are a peasant and I knew that the moment I met you. So...

    I would not run climb cut with the real profile cutter. But a climb cut made on the still square stock that rounds the
    corners ,and more if possible WILL help. Sometimes even something like a 1/4...

    Agree with Bill, I'd let the vertical edges hang about a half inch lower than the bottom of the top surface. And if the top
    hangs over all around the copper will protect all of the cabinet.

    It was slightly concave versus straight . But yes some can only make convex, since they can't make proper jointer
    adjustments. I'm sure it's the freshest and most complete anywhere.
