    Marking knife vs. utility knife

    Thank you all for your suggestions and advice. I think I'm going to go with the Veritas for now and see how that works out. If I get to the point where I become a tad more accomplished than I am now (that's a big "if"), I might consider stepping up to a Blue Spruce. Thanks again!

    Marking knife vs. utility knife

    Thanks for clearing that up for me! Great! I guess I wouldn't get that same feeling from a utility knife. Thanks! I was looking at that one. At that price I might as well give it a try. Thanks for taking the time.

    Marking knife vs. utility knife

    Sorry for what is a newbie question, but does "thin profile dovetails" refer to the thickness of the stock?
  5. Is there any advantage to using a dedicated marking knife rather than a utility knife? I've just started to learn how to make dovetails and wonder if one would be better than the other (not so much for cleaning up, just for the marking). Thanks, Jim

    Table saw fences

    Thanks, Coop. That's the wing of a 757-300 in flight from Vegas to Chicago.
  9. Other than attaching to the table with no movement, what makes a good fence "good"? What makes a fence "better"? Thanks, Jim

    Storage Cabinet Drawers

    Thanks for the reply. The depth of the cabinet is 16" from the inside of the back panel to the front edge.

    Storage Cabinet Drawers

    Thanks! Yes, I've already starting building the cabinet, so I'm stuck with the 16 inches. As far as the 12" or 14" dimension goes, is that because of the availability of slides in those lengths?
  12. Hello all, I'm pretty new to woodworking (by no means do I consider myself a woodworker) and this is my first post in this forum. Please forgive what I'm sure is a very basic question. I'm building a shop storage cabinet with drawers and shelves (no plans except for my own). It's going to be 16 inches deep. How much shorter than 16 inches should I make the drawers? Also, I plan to use full extension slides. What length slides should I use? Thanks for any answers.
