    I think it comes down to the individual worker. I do agree with Brian that getting the machine setup really accurate can have a positive impact on the quality and precision of joinery...and that's...

    I keep things simple for this kind of thing...BLO. I don't use film finishes on things like workbenches for the same reason I wouldn't do it on a cutting board. These surfaces (including the jaws of...

    My advise...leave it alone. It's costly and complicated to repair a dent that deep in any kind of invisible way with no guarantee as to the "invisible". It may be less noticeable leaving well alone.

    The whole reason for ties is to insure that the long-side walls don't buckle out with the weight of the roof structure and anything attached to it. I'd also be very hesitant to put any additional...

    A good point was made about damage caused from trying to "set" these small fasteners. So I take back my original ascent to that idea and agree with the "let it be" thing. However, I also will...
