    John — How old is your EM-8000CV? Just asking in case it’s a bad batch or something.

    Glenn — Curious if there are there any special seismic code items you have to deal with, or does that not apply to “accessory buildings? Looks a nice shop coming together ... quickly.

    I’ve run boards with dados through the planer and it’s usually fine (although a drum sander would be better for this operation). I would try and test piece first to make sure and take light passes.

    Patrick — I have a Forrest 6” stack with 30mm arbor + PINS if you are still looking. I moved to the Felder dado cutters, so I don’t need the Forrest stack any more. PM if interested.

    I wish my first piece looked that good ... it was a fairly hideous red oak nightstand, which has long since been dismantled and repurposed into various shop projects. Well done.
