  1. I'd change that slightly and instead of doing a lap on the left side of the door I'd do inset all the way around with euro hinges. I have done lap doors and inset doors and the inset seemed to work a lot better for me. Like Jason said you can laminate hardwood strips on the edge of the plywood to give it a finished edge I've done this myself on many small cabinets and book shelves (Pictured below). For the "panels" I'd just attach a hardwood trim from a box store on the front.
  2. Gonna be a hippie here, anything endangered. I enjoy the craft and want to be able to continue for ever. I don't want to be unable to use some beautiful woods in the future just because i was captivated now.
  3. Dud your cars end up like this?
  4. My dad tried to do everything himself and what he couldn't do he tried anyway. I adopted the same mentality, the only reason i feel i ever got better is because of my dad and the great resources on the internet, like this site and everyone that is here. So thanks to those that put in their time helping other people. Nothing feels better than when you finish a big house project and it cost you practically nothing (comparatively) and looks awesome.
  5. 2700 mph DANG that's some fast moving air. Do you mean 40 fps?
  6. I thought you weren't going to make any ...?
  7. Nice work that oak panel is beautiful. I really like the wood choices. I had to reread everything to verify that the top was bent lamination. Can't even tell from pictures. Was it hard to get the dovetails in a board that was laminated?
  8. You can get them though amazon or rockler...they are about 20 bucks for 100. Get the .260 and they fit snug in a 1/4 groove. Put them every 4 to 6 inches and undersize the panel 1/4". They are $20 for 1000 on Amazon i just bought some. Pardon the spelling sent from my phone.
  9. Looks really good in pictures, stairs are a pain but that looks like your effort paid off.
  10. Holy that's unfortunate. I think the thing that would bother me the most about that is having to take all that heavy stuff off the saw. Good thing they worked with you and sent you more than you needed just in case. Good luck getting it set back up hope it all goes smoothly.
  11. The ultimate cutoff blades that ace and a few others mentioned are positive hook angle blades. Having used negative hook angle blades i agree with you an avoiding them. Mine has a 10 degree positive hook.
  12. To me it's not if he'd notice it. If he doesn't notice it the guy should be fired because he's a liability. I think it's more what the consequences would be when left. When your instructed to fix it, removing it would fix it. How is that going to effect the opinion of the buyer.
  13. Do you guys offer intern or mentor opportunities for Craig's List shopping?
  14. I have 2 freud 80 tooth Ultimate Cutoff blades one full kerf one thin kerf. I really like their cut quality though i use them in my sliding miter. In my table saw i have a Freud Combination and it makes pretty clean crosscuts but not nearly as nice as the ultimate cutoff. I don't notice a cut quality difference between full kerf and think kerf.

    I was just going to say i wish i could smell it, that'd solve it faster than looking at it.
  16. It'll will get noticed, and then they will probably recommend you "fix" it. Could slap something over it to cover it temporarily. I don't know what the inspector will say or how people will precieve that. If i was the buyer I'd think it's awesome and tell you to leave it. It might make some people nervous and wonder how much other electrical you did at a marginal job that they can't see.
  17. Looks like things are coming along nicely. How did you stop the top from moving around while you were planing on it?
  18. Beautiful. The lattice on the top is an awesome design idea i really like how it adds depth to a flat surface. The rungs for the ladder is another cool idea and came together very well. The panels that you made that are against the wall and behind the mattress are really nice it's almost a shame to push that up against the wall. I really like where you store your festool track. That's a clever idea something i may borrow some day (probably not for festool track), I'd have never thought to store something there.

    I'm throwing my vote in as maple. It kinda looks like this maple i have here. Pardon the spelling sent from my phone.

    Nice Score!

    I like the look of pine in some situations, so i get what you mean. Yes that is an invitation for scorn. Today i met a guy that owns his own bandmill and runs a tree service. He had some Russian olive drying along with some chokecherry, elm,maple, and cottonwood. I may buy some of his stock just to see how things go. But instead you have us.

    Nice Score!

    Wow Nice score Janello, i thought i had a good day where ran into a guy who hates walnut hand me a piece that was about 3 BF. Is Honduran the best of the Mahogany family? I realize that's objective so share your opinion.
  22. I went from a job site saw to mine and honestly it's like comparing a mushroom to a laser. I think my saw is great but I'm used to some of the worst on the market. I wish i could go around and rip some boards on a bunch of different saws to see what they are like. Even doing that I'd have to use it for a while to figure out what really irks me about the different ones.
  23. Interesting cast iron lesson, good review. Is it being nitpicky to go to that detail? Idk what's reasonable. I know my wings aren't perfectly flat either but that was putting a strait edge across the center table and both wings. Pardon the spelling sent from my phone.

    Does it smell weird when you work it? I have some sycamore and it us very pungent. Pardon the spelling sent from my phone.
  25. It's not wasted it's getting used and he, despite the possible short life, still loves it. Inlay is an excellent idea and that will have to be the solution for round 2.
