    Now Rickey is a Fidelity Fund type investment? Went from $5.50 bft to ? I’m glad I locked in at $3.85.

    I’d have to invest also in a horse and buggy and I know nothing about either. But I’ll leave it up to Rickey!

    Blue, to understand correctly, you extended the apron to make it longer? If that’s the case, how did you attach the apron to the legs from the beginning?

    Teak Dilemma

    Hammer, I have a great son that does similiar gifts. Three years in a row, he gave me a different Dremmel tool. It was hard for me to tell him that I would much rather have long sleeve Carhartt tees or a new 8” jointer. But his heart’s in the right place. Every once in a while I will bring up that without that particular Dremmel, I don’t know what I would have done. Good luck with your decision as I’m sure it will please both you and him!

    No sir, I wish. Bought that about 15 years ago from an Amish shop.

    Replacing thickness planer Delta RC-33

    Chris, to what do you base your comments? I had the same Delta and gave it away after using the newly purchased 735 a couple of years ago. Although I respect your opinion, I question your basis. Although the Delta got the job done with min. snipe, the 735 is one bad mofo!

    Coffee table for my nephew

    Although I personally don’t care for the design, the execution couldn’t have been more perfect. Beautiful piece for their home.

    sketching a simple woodworking bench

    Not to hj this, but the question has to do with the subject. Would most agree that the shoulders main purpose is: 1) to conceal any imperfections between the mortise and tenon and 2) to insure, if cut right, that the two joined pieces are square to each other?

    11'x4' Oak Slab Problems

    You mentioned flipping it over a couple of times. If this piece is resting on a solid surface, I would suggest placing small strips of wood under it to elevate it and allow for air circulation.

    I’ve heard of Tina Frey somewhere, but most of the time I don’t watch tv.

    Surface or ends? Frays as in raising the grain?

    Help! Watco Danish Oil and Poly

    Kim, give your hubby one of those little puppy looks and tell him that if he loves you, he will build another desktop for you. I bet there is still some leftover ply. Then, as John suggests, the Arm-R-Seal, which might be difficult to find, or a water base poly from Home Depot will be fine.

    Is there a concern about wood movement if you let them set for that long before going into the kiln? Typing before thinking. I guess not, no different than stickering and air drying I guess.

    Collin ................ That’s ugly ! However, my first attempt was butt ugly. Good first try. Also, it’s way better when both boards are the same width.

    Proper Depth of Cut on Table Saw

    I read recently that having the bottom of the gullet even with the top of the board allows the teeth to have a cutting down motion instead the blade pushing forward on the board as it comes in contact with it, thus making it a safer cut.

    "Hand-Cut" Dovetails

    What is that “stuff” in the background? So you handheld the router?

    "Hand-Cut" Dovetails

    Those look darn tight! On the gap, did you chop away for the tails from both sides toward the middle? It almost looks like the middle of the board is proud of the outside edges, thus not letting it close good.
