  1. I like the out come. The top looks like it will be fun to get finish on it. It's kind of hard t tell but I am guessing the "feet" end of the legs are under the edge or drip line of the table top.
  2. Ditto. If nothing else it's just another way of being a good neighbor.

    Drew is pretty much on the mark. You don't get quality and accuracy on the cheap.
  4. Spray Finish Made Simple by Jeff Jewitt Is a good book and DVD on spray finishing. I suggest watching the DVD first and then read the book.
  5. I use one of my dado blades for flat bottom stuff. I never really thought about a dedicated blade because I had the dado. I will be interested to see how your new blade works. It looks identical to mine except mine is the red finish. When I cut a grove with mine it is mostly flat with a small bat ear on one side.
  6. Welcome to the forums. We except all questions. Back in middle school I had a shop teacher that said "the only dumb question was the one never asked".
  7. And then you get the stores that won't refund on a faulty item because you damaged the Packaging.

    Welcome Gwenn. If you are happy with the color the way it is I would just give ti a light sanding with 400 grit just to smooth the surface and get rid of any nibs or things of that nature then apply some wipe on poly, light sanding with 400 between coats. The wipe on polys are clear and won't add any yellowing to your finish.
  9. I am assuming you meant Tylenol
  10. Should be valuable it's NIB.
  11. I think it is pretty good, but more than that it is kind of a family thing. My mom's uncle grew popcorn, thousands of acres of the stuff and sold the crop to Jolly Time.
  12. Yes, I had to do my old 6 inch jointer years back. I didn't find it a hassle, it can be time consuming and I think that is were people get frustrated. You just need to plan on spending some time. I think if you are somewhat prepared its not that bad. I had some shims ready to go, more then I needed but this made it easier because I didn't have to stop to cut more.
  13. This sound like your outfield table is lower at the far end then it at the blade end. There should be a section in your manual as to how to adjust this.
  14. That's my technique too. Works pretty good. An grocery store that doesn't carry Jolly Time Popcorn.
