    I'm sure that the specific situations matter relative to how much the movement can make a difference. In the case at our old property, the issue is with the cap along the top of an exposed foundation...

    Whatever method you choose, accuracy will be a good thing, not just for visual appeal, but also because it cuts down the amount of sealing you'll need to do along the edges of the material. Straight...

    I think there's merit in using a track or guided saw for cutting a quantity of this material and I'd consider it if I was going to be in that situation. Yes, a table saw can also be used, but a lot...

    That's the nice thing about vertical storage...yes, it uses a little floor space, but it's limited in most cases. What's most important about this method is that the material is fully supported along...

    There are certainly applications where the size and/or mortise depth from Domino/Domino XL are not ideal. It's up to the craftsperson to make that determination and use a method that's best for the...

    Same for me, Scott. I do on occasion find "a spot" where tape can play a role. A good example with a current project is that I just repainted the end wall of our family/bird room in our new home...

    Yes, it's good that Oneida offers the adapter for folks who have existing SDD that didn't come with it. The nice folks at Blastgate Company (and I imagine Nordfab, too) have a machine that can...

    I have the same SDD in my temporary shop "as we speak. I was able to easily slip a piece of 6" hose over the outlet to connect to the blower. It was snug, but it fit and is sealed nicely with the...

    I'm also sold on the 10' base ceiling height myself base on many comments and photos over the years. The incremental cost difference isn't huge, but the utility is, and that's what I'll be shooting...

    That would be my contention, too. There are a lot of folks who would enjoy a compact pickup with a small bed just for utility. They are not looking for or interested in a "work truck". This is just...

    I knew that Bill was ill with COVID and he knew it was serious. I'm very sad that he was taken. Despite the two of us being VERY different in many respects, we were also good friends for many years....

    Mel, I think a big part of rot issues isn't the material as much as it is the situation where water/moisture, for whatever reason, lingers which in turn promotes the rot. There's no harm in taking...
