    In NY where I live Winter is a good time to sticker freshly cut wood and begin the air drying process. However, I've found that sun directly striking a wood stack, anytime of the year, is not good. ...

    Not sure that will work. But I am sure Naptha and mineral spirits will remove silicone. Multiple wipes with a fresh cloth each time.

    I couldn't agree more for the boxes. When you're done building, you're done; no painting required. Heavy as a mule and the edges will cut you just looking at them, but it's flat, stable, durable,...

    I paid $106/sheet for 3/4" in April 2019. I know, not cheap, but it's dead flat, stays that way, has no voids, and will never show grain lines through the paint. I used it to make a row of cabinet...

    I recommend you look at PlumaPly - HDF. It has a plywood core and couple of mm's of HDF on both sides. It paints great, even better than MDF because it's denser. And because the core is plywood...

    That's fine as long as the boring distance needs to be the same. But bear in mind most Euro hinges can have a variety of boring distances dependent upon door thickness and required reveal. Two...

    I was out at a friend's shop a couple of days ago. He had an ash toy chest lid he had made, about 24 x 36" L, with two inlayed battens about 1.5" wide and maybe 5/16" thick. I looked and the...

    I'm surprised anyone would buy a slab flattening jig when you can build one for next to nothing out of your scrap bin. I used to make them for whatever the need was, then cut them up until I needed...

    I don't buff off Lundmark, just put it on and go back to work. I only use one coat, too. It goes on so thin I doubt multiple coats are going to add much benefit but that's just a guess. I haven't...

    I use it mostly on my machines. What I like about it is you just wipe it on and go back to work; no need to buff it off. The couple of times I put it on a finished wood surface it was extremely...

    No knowledge of that wax but anything with silicone in it would not get near my shop. Why take a chance when there are plenty of other waxes to choose from. In that regard, Lundmark's Paste Wax...

    Jamie is correct. 3/32" is about 2.5 mm, and for that hinge with a 9 mm mounting plate, the boring distance is 5 mm, so the center of the cup would be 17.5 + 5 = 22.5 mm from the edge.

    A mockup...

    Yes, what Jim said. Blade deflection decrease as tension increases. At low tension the rear bearing supports the blade from bending rearward as the wood is fed into the blade. As tension increases...

    I can see the photo with your tension gage, Julie. It doesn't matter which way the gage moves; all that matters is the difference in the gage reading from zero tension. That being said, your gage...

    40 years will get you a fair quantity of quality projects. I actually have no clue how many projects I made in my house. I do know there is something in every room and some rooms have nothing but...

    Unless you are cutting resinous or wet wood, why would stuff build up on a blade? If you are cutting wood of that ilk then, sure, do whatever is needed to keep it clean; otherwise, I don't see the...

    If the owner is happy that's all that matters. I've never thought about resale value when I decided to do something inside or outside my home. Kitchens and baths are the most remodeled rooms in a...

    Perseverance usually wins, and your efforts were rewarded even if the color is not exactly what you wanted. No one else knows; they just see that beautiful door.

    I've sprayed many gallons of EnduroVar, and it is a great finish. However, it's not as bullet proof as I once thought. A friend of mine made a beautiful dining table of African mahogany and...

    Thanks for the follow-up info. Patrick. EnduroVar never looked so good! Lovely on that Sapele.

    Those things are only 10 - 12" in diameter. Pizza peels aren't much thicker, maybe 5/8", but are much larger and they stay pretty flat, certainly no large cupping. I don't think it mattered that...
