    Paraffin wax, Mineral oil, mineral spirits, and naphtha are all hydrocarbons in their pure form. They were the purest form of ďoilĒ as we think of it. They differ in viscosity and (I believe)...

    Bandsaw is fine for the kerf. Drill the hole after the kerf is made. The drill will follow the kerf .

    You can try to heat the wood, to set the sap, then shellac it to seal the surface. But like any soft liquid trapped inside, it may eventually ooze until fully dried over years, so plan on cleaning...

    You'd get a more accurate answer by inquiring about a specific model of a tool.

    I've bought good bandsaws from them, and it is my (academic only) belief their top of the line models in (at least)...

    I also agree about the smell. If it smells like a good scotch, or creamy then itís white oak. If it is vinegary then itís red. The vinegar odor will decrease in old red oak, but the...

    FWW did a review of cordless trim routers recently. Worth a read. I ended up picking up the Bosch. It is not suitable for plunge work, but for edge work, and even dovetailing, it's fantastic. The...

    Stand where you need to be able to guide the piece through properly aligned to the fence. For most right handers, that means to the left of the blade for thin rip cuts.

    However, for ripping...

    Not to derail the original conversation, but my point is that a drawknife can be thought of as a carving tool, not only capable but really appropriate for a lot of final shaping work. It requires...

    "draw knife coarse". You haven't seen Curtiss Buchanan work one ;). The DK is in fact a way underutilized tool IMHO. Unlike soled tools with a mouth, though, it requires understanding of the...

    It is certainly doable. Assuming you get over all the hurdles, how practical really is an 8 foot square table? What can you possibly put in the middle that you can reach across and use? Now I...

    An 8'x8' sounds fantastic...until you try to glue it, sand it, finish it, and move it - even get it into the space.

    YMMV, but I would convince them to stick with 2 tables. There are connectors...

    Barker will save you some money, but don't count on it being cheap. It's fairly priced, IMHO. They will pre-finish in several stains and a pretty durable finish (cannot recall if it's conversion...

    No. I have always (done it 4 times) made my own rig. I do it infrequently enough that having a rig to store would annoy me.

    The rails and sled are the easy part, and wood works just fine.

    "less preferable" is relative.

    To me, ripping them into managable sections is way more preferable than manually resawing it tall for a batch of chests.

    Also, when you resaw - especially stuff...

    At that price, you can consider the Woodpecker slab flattening jig. It's about USD1000 from Woodcraft and can handle most dining table size slabs.

    Even a 1/8" roundover bit can cause tear out.
