    On the usual biesemeyer fence, there are wood or plastic faces which screw on to a steel structure. Often those faces can be adjusted up or down by loosening the mounting screws.

    Yeah, the commercial rail squares do seem a bit spendy. I made my own. It is essentially a big speed square which clips on to the rail with the same kind of draw latch used by the commercial rail...

    Haven't you answered your own question? You found that dealing with the lead paint made no economic sense. Wouldn't the next guy would come to the same conclusion?

    To preserve those hand-planed marks, don't use water-based film-forming finish. Use an oil-based finish which does not form a film. Like Osmo Polyx, or Tried & True Original.

    Yeah, that's what I came up with the lighting.

    The client brought me a photo from a design magazine. This wide platform seems quite popular, although it looks sleeker if the mattress isn't as...

    If the table is freestanding, the miter might not come apart as the wood shrinks and expands. If you run through the math, it turns out that the hygroscopic movement acts to change the angle...

    Here's a queen bed I built earlier this year. Perhaps it qualifies as a floating bed. It is a platform bed; that is, the mattress rests on slats. Visually, the platform appears 4" tall, and...

    Waterborne finishes "raise the grain". That's just the nature of the beast. Be prepared to de-nib. I usually do it after the second coat. De-nibbing is very light sanding. It is surprising how...

    I once built a king bed for a couple who were buying the mattress for it. They chose to buy two twin XL mattresses, because hauling a one-piece king mattress upstairs was going to be a challenge. ...

    As I understand it, brass machines more easily, so they can reliably cut those thin knife edge threads around the outside.

    One of the few uses I've found for an oscillating saw (Fein etc) is for cutting baseboard in place when I'm installing built-in cabinets.

    That's a complicated way of fastening cabinets to the...

    Lee Valley sells brass threaded inserts. I use a lot of the 1/4-20 ones, which are a half inch long. Lee Valley also sells a very good driver for installing the inserts. This one is for 1/4-20...

    Goggle with "chevron cutting boards". They're smaller than you're contemplating, but should give you some encouragement.

    I hadn't been thinking of resawing the long half-chevron strip to make veneer, but that should work. Do you have a bandsaw big enough to resaw ten inches?

    I don't have good intuition about the...

    I'm thinking ahead to the job of assembling lots and lots of parallelogram pieces into the pattern. That's a lot of labor, and there isn't a great way to clamp each piece tightly to the next. ...
