    Antique Chest Drawer Wood

    The pulls aren't Hepplewhite are they? They resemble Chippendale.

    Twin Turbo Vise

    I've always liked the record vise encased in wood like David Marks has on his bench. How is the vise you guys are describing better than an inexpensive record vise?

    DeWalt 735X Planer deal

    Amazon has it for $579. It's the DW735X which means you get the feed tables and extra knives. So if you don't need the stand you could save $20. Don't know what tax savings you could get on Amazon. Of course $20 for a $145 stand is a pretty good deal.
  4. You'll be able to see it's a built in with the existing wall constraints, it's not like there's room which would beg the question as to why you didn't make them symmetrical. Symmetrical is boring and contrived anyway. Like staging furniture with matching lamps.

    Projects From the Past 6 Months

    Love the bureau. Very pleasing, subtle wood grain choice you made there. I dislike flashy contrasting woods and grain patterns that are too much and don't grow with you over time. Nice work.

    Hepplewhite Sideboard

    The focus of that book is how to identify a good period furniture piece, so it contains no construction details. I have one of the earlier editions of that book, I hope the newest edition was finally printed in color. That's a great looking piece, the Federal period is my favorite. Is your book new? I couldn't find it anywhere.

    Table Saw! Powermatic vs. SawStop vs. your favorite!

    The warranty periods for the 2 saws are far apart. Is there a good reason for that?

    8 Drawer Dresser In Walnut

    I went over your op again. When you said you were going to do some veneering I took this to mean you were going to adhere the veneer to a substrate. I missed the fact that you made (5) 1/4" solid panels. I was unaware you could make panels that thin without a substrate. I assume you probably aimed for 5/16" ea panel. Do you risk the panels warping by finishing them immediately after sawing? This is even better than I originally thought. To make panels that thin without substrate; via milling them from your own milled log is pretty freakin cool.

    So go this route if u don't mind waiting for it to dry and you're getting the tree or log for free. If there's more waste then it's a little less stable compared to 'traditionally' milled boards. How thick do you cut the veneers from slabs compared to a 'traditional' 3/16" veneer?

    8 Drawer Dresser In Walnut

    I was thinking if you had your own chainsaw it would be cheap to mill this way just for veneering purposes. Is there a disadvantage as far as the stability in the veneer cut this way vs. the traditional ways of doing it? I just haven't seen it done this way before. Very interesting.

    Are there any disadvantages to re-sawing slabs like this? It seems this would be a cost effective advantage.

    Moving large machines...sanity check

    Whatever plan you use please take some video of the operation and post them here. There aren't many videos on youtube that show someone transporting woodworking machines around

    West Systems Fail

    If the size of one pump worth of product isn't recommended on the bottle then get an average of what a pump weighs in grams, then you don't have to rely on the pump to dispense the proper amount. I have a scale to measure food servings that weighs in grams and ounces.
