  1. Based on your design, I’d suggest looking at some book shelf plans or videos. The spacing size may be different, but construction would be similar.
  2. My first jointer was one like this, though the base was a little different. With sharp blades it will work well. Getting the tables aligned can be a pain, but once set they stay put.
  3. Mitered. Proud joints will make dusting harder.
  4. Tools from that era were well built and should be used, not kept as art objects. It hurts their feelings and brings bad karma
  5. The Latina Revo 12/16 is about $850.
  6. Colonial hardwoods in Springfield May be able to help you out.
  7. Also, it takes courage to step up to a piece that big. Her turning is impressive, and that is a fun video to watch.
  8. Chestnut has the right idea. Use a straight grained board, for a really tight fit for the drawer, start with a board a little longer as well as taller. Oh, and make sure you mark the board before you cut so you can put it back together again.
  9. Some cuts require the removal of the guard, thin rips, for example. The Gripper is great for these cuts.
  10. Is it sharp? If it is, then it’s just cosmetic and not worth worrying about.
  11. If the tape has ever been dropped, the “hook” may be bent back, changing the reading. Also, over time the rivets that hold on the hook can loosen up, also changing the measurement. The easy answer is already listed here, just use the same measuring tool for everything and it will turn out fine.
  12. I have used edge grain, end grain, and flat sawn cutting boards for years for meat and veggies, without worrying about what I used it for previously - as long as I clean up after each use, and no problems. I will cut meat on a board after cutting vegetables without washing up, but not the other way around. You can worry about these things, but the most important thing is to wash well after use.
  13. I would screw it into the leg first. If the fit is at all tight in the leg it will be easier that way, and you don’t risk stripping the threaded insert.
