  1. I agree. Definitely go with wood slides on a dresser like that. Side hung drawers are easy, but go with whatever you are most comfortable with.
  2. Looks great! Except for the CNC produced cutting wheel.
  3. I have Johnson's paste wax and don't find the smell that bad. If you want to get rid of the smell put out some rat poison. Let the rat die in your shop somewhere that you can't find, and now your shop will smell terrible for a whole different reason. That's the smell I'm dealing with right now.
  4. This was kind of exhausting to read. Honestly who really cares what someone calls something? We all probably have our own line of what is "handmade" , but again why does anyone care? Just go build what makes you happy, the way it makes you happy, and quit squabbling over what to call something. Good day.
  5. You wont really go wrong choosing from any of the top companies. Blum, Accuride, Knape and Vogt all make quality slides. I prefer Knape and Vogt, but any of the above will be fine.
  6. I bag all mine up and use it for bedding in our calf barns.
  7. +1 That's what it looks like to me. It looks like the stain was poured on and where it was poured soaked in before it was spread evenly.
  8. Using polyshades is the problem. Since you have already sealed the surface with shellac you will need to use a gel stain or sand back to bare wood to get an oil based stain to penetrate to the desired level. Use this. (just the type not color) Not polyshades. I always apply stain with an old sock. I dip it in the stain and wipe it into the surface. I never flood the surface with stain but rub it in rather aggressively. That's just my method there are plenty of other ways to go about it.
  9. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ASGL02/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Works really well.
  10. Get a nest cam to watch over your shop when your not there. She can go online and yell at you through the camera. Assuming you have wifi in the shop you could also buy a wifi outlet and plug a light into it. She can control that with her phone as well.
  11. I haven't had mine very long, but it doesn't ever move from where I have it so I didn't even put the outriggers on. It is ridiculous how much room they take up.
  12. I agree with drzaius. Those just look like surface scratches that didn't get sanded out or filled in with the new layer of finish. I would sand back a little further and wipe down with mineral spirits to see if the scratches are still visible.
  13. Yes that will be fine on a cutting board.
  14. No glue alone will be sufficient for the top. People typically use dominos or something similar to help with alignment of all the boards, but not necessarily for strength.
  15. Yeah I have used a supermax and an old jet before. I just haven't had one personally in my shop. I know that they in no way replace hand sanding. The cost and being able to pick it up today is what was driving my decision. Thanks for leaving me with no doubts!
