  1. How about a third and untried option of wasting away just shy of your line with the saw and then using the router and trammel to get to your line. might have created less smoking on the cherry. Kind of an in between the two techniques you used.
  2. Also looks like a break room or something below. I would be concerned with stuff falling of the stair treads as well as peoples shoe and on to people's food and drink.
  3. I did mine 1 1/2 on center. If you were to have a couple of different style molding or raised panel bits that may be a couple of inches in diameter or more and if you want them side by side for organizational reasons, you could end up with the blades banging against each other. I ran in to this with my 1 1/2 inch layout and have to have them away from each other. Every time I open my bit drawer I have to avert my vision so it doesn't bug me that they aren't lined up.

    Domino Time

    Good glue coverage on face and edge grain will give you most of your strength in a mortise and tenon joint. But there are times when you may want to take the time to fit the tenon more closely to the mortise all the way around. Any project that will under go stress or racking in the course of its lifetime could suffer premature failure with larger gaps at the end of the mortise.
  5. That came out real nice Isaac. What a cutie in the test sit picture. By the way I hate to be the one to inform you, but that saw in the forth picture isn't a Veritas Western Style Saw. But hey if you cut those dovetails with that saw who am I to criticize.
  6. This is correct. Everybody is not listed on there its just a source to start the process when you move to a new area.
  7. Here is the link to the miter sled Coop mentioned above.
  8. Doing it in sections will work fine. All your glue lines will be lost in the design of the overall profile. I did something similar to this years ago using three different crown moldings to make a mantel for our fire place.
  9. Welcome to the forums, You can also try going to - enter you zip code and see what pops up.
  10. You might want to PM @Coop I know he built a flip top and is happy with it.
  11. If i understand the OP, I think this is going to be a product test done by a government entity and if it passes the test then the toys can safely end up in the hands of a child.
  12. I was thinking they wanted to know it was safe for a toddler that may chose to teeth on the toy.
  13. I have been wearing shorts and tee shirts all this week.
  14. Wisconsin for me.

    SawStop setup issue

    Absolutely nothing right or wrong about your choice. I did my Incra 5000 sled the same way on my saw (SawStop). The side you are one allows you to use it with your dado stack with the sled, something I do a lot more then the times I have the blade tilted at an angle. I use my other Incra miter gauge for cuts with the blade set at an angle.
  16. That came out fantastic, especially considering you worked from a couple of photos. I think Maloof would be happy with the results.
  17. They still have a lot of regulations but they had to loosen up quit a bit because the International Olympic Committee wasn't going to give them the Olympics in 02'. All the different nations wanted to be able to serve alcohol at their hospitality sites.

    SawStop setup issue

    Interesting website and it has things not related to woodworking if you are interested.
  19. I am not surprised but I am impressed with her work and attitude. I have to admit that I don't think I would want to stand near something that heavy while it was spinning.
  20. He is going to cooper it and then us his jointer like a hand plane to smooth the surface... nah, he's probably to smart to us a jointer in that fashion.
  21. In the picture you posted the pipes are threaded into what is called a floor flange, you can get these at most any hardware store in the plumbing department. The flange has four screw holes in it and you just need to position it so that you have two holes on each side of your glue line and pre-drill the holes in the wood, this is always best practice because it helps eliminates wood splitting when attaching things with screws.
