  1. Yeah... I learned early on to plan out things and cut similar length pieces together. I assume the tape measure is accurate to about a 1/4"...
  2. I plan to buy a full set eventually, but right now I just have green.
  3. This is kind of interesting and related... but those pegs in that rockler pick have some sort of metal flat backing. Might be like this pegboard protector plate, or likely built right into the hooks... https://www.palaydisplay.com/Pegboard-Protector-Plate-p-23051.html
  4. My only experience with an electric chain saw is a $50 plug in Homelite I bought at Home Depot. It was crap. It worked for my purposes of cutting up small limbs and landscape timbers, but it really didn't have much power.
  5. Rockler sells these which look interesting: https://www.rockler.com/small-8-piece-small-pegboard-holders-3-b-s-2-d-s-3-e-s
  6. If you cut out the backs to bend the wood, will this make it more likely to rot out?
  7. That word there I highlighted means you need a lawyer. The value of the tree isn't a lumber value, but rather a shade tree value. For instance Black Walnut is highly desired for lumber, but as a residential landscape tree is considered undesirable as it drops nuts and makes a mess. I found a pretty good publication from the extension service at Purdue that explains this and even has a formula. https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/FNR/FNR-473-W.pdf Although prices are going to be Indiana based, it'll vary by region. And there are arborist who can do this appraisal who will have a good idea of local market conditions.
  8. Well I'm glad it worked out! I was curious to see how you eventually moved it. I need/want to move my Sawstop PCS and Powermatic PM54a down into the basement, and am planning to do some disassembly to make it easier.
  9. My father was an engineer at Zenith back in the 1960s. He told me once they had this meeting between the engineers and the marketing department. The engineers wanted to start building equipment in black boxes like they were seeing coming out of Europe and Asia. The marketing department assured them that people wanted stereos and televisions in walnut enclosures that looked like furniture.
  10. Looks interesting. Would have to see how it performs over time under different circumstances. To be that sensitive to detect a finger from a distance, I'm afraid it might easily false trigger with different normal cutting conditions.
  11. It looks like they decided to rename the show and dropped the Roughcut name.
  12. I have that book my Tom Moser on Shaker furniture... It's a really good book for ideas... there are measured drawings of a number of Shaker pieces, and it goes into some detail on design elements.
  13. I bought fancy lag bolts from Le Depot a Domicile.
  14. Agreed. There were a lot of really nice pieces this year.
