    My final gift to my wife

    I am saddened by your story and her struggles I pray that she is at peace. And that you can only think of the good times.Your project just show's the caring and the unconditional love you felt for her.And to have a friend to have helped in the way he did also shows how much she was loved. May she rest in peace and you sir may you have peace in your heart till you meet here again .

    Dewalt 735

    I have had the planner for over a year and love it I have never had a problem with snipe it has performed perfectly I decided it was time to change the blades or i guess just flip them around took me a little over a half hour. Here is my problem I now have developed a snipe at the beginning of the cut about three inches in from the start of the cut.If I take the board and feed it at an angle no snipe .It not bad its just annoying did I do some thing wrong when I changed the blades around.Can't figure it out .I would appreciate and suggestions Thanks

    Mineral Oil vs. Butcher Block Oil

    In the Old Butcher shops at the end of the week they would take very course ground salt and cover the top of the block .They had a very course brush with metal bristles about 1/8th wide and would scrub the top of the block to remove the slime from the blood and fat.It was almost like sanding it down with course ground paper.Cooking Oil And Mineral Oil are the easiest and the safest for a food safe application Some people use Peanut Oil not thinking about people with Peanut allergy's
