  1. In all honestly, I doubt anything Woodpeckers makes is worth the money. But they are nice. I like the indexes in particular and I'm always on the lookout for another square. I have 3 or 4 that just do not lock. One is a brand new 4" Starrett that I never ended up returning so it just sits there.
  2. I have issues with flatness doing that. Not significant, but enough that the feet I put on the cutting boards need shims to sit flat.
  3. I got my woodpecker drill press table from They charged $6.50 s/h $108 total, cause there was a 15% sales event.

    Amazon Account

    I was just looking through my amazon orders and found that I bought a 23-gauge pin nailer 5 months ago. Which is unfortunate because I bought one 2 weeks ago as well. The second one is a Senco and I've got it out of the package and used it. I found the other snuggled up against the Festool vac next to assembly table. Guess I'll sell it.
  5. I used knock down bolts on my kitchen counter to pull two pieces together. This is an example from Rockler

    Outdoor Kitchens

    I am dreaming of a day I have enough space to do this as well. All Things Barbecue site is a great place like mentioned above. I order from there every couple of months for spices and such.
  7. I know I'm late to the party, but I think that looks pretty good. I hate pine and that does not make me puke.
  8. I had no idea you could use ammonia. That sounds like a great way to accidentally pass out from the fumes.
  9. Anyone have a favorite technique for finishing quartersawn white oak? I'm looking towards Wood Whisperer's Grandfather Clock as an inspiration. I assume there is no problem with putting ARS on top of a dye, but I have no idea for sure. I'm open minded to some ideas. I've never used QSWO before, but to me it's the one wood that looks good with a stain of some sort on it.
  10. I got 5 or 6 sheets of it 3 years or so ago. I think from fastcap. If you spent $100 it was free shipping. I like it but I've changed my layout a bit since I got it and had to reconfigure. One of them I just turned over and was able to cut into the other side. I also got the burning tool to cut it, skip that. Utility knife works so much better.
  11. fantastic job. i got some a smoker and grill area that badly needs some things built and I'm dragging my feet.
  12. It ranges from a very tight 1/16" to a very lose 1/16" and then the far left and far right sides seem to be just a bit wider, but they seem to match so it kinda works.
  13. I like it. Not as well as ARS but one coat really makes it worth it. The drawer fronts are actually kin dried from my local hardwood guy. Saw this board and grabbed it when I bought my new planer. The rest of the case walnut is air dried.
