    Granite lab table - $125 (castle hayne)

    Filling large knot holes and voids

    I like to use thin CA to "stabilize" the knot, it wicks into the smallest crack, even the ones you can't see. Then a little fine sawdust from the sander, followed by more thin CA glue. Then fill it with thick CA or quick dry 2 part clear epoxy. Once dry sand flush. Bas and others have some good...

    Sick of breaking screws

    Yep... Pop, goes the weasel. Menards sell construction screws that are shaped like drywall screws but they don't snap like drywall screws.

    3-in-1 Crib plans

    OK I'll bite... @JimD What's a platform bed? I seen rope beds and beds that don't need a box spring. I sleep on a converted California king waterbed that has a regular mattress, instead of a water mattress. The regular mattress is over top of a plywood "platform", that would normally support the...

    3-in-1 Crib plans

    That they are... But they make for a clean looking connection. I suppose you could counter sink lag bolts and use button plugs also but that seems to be just as much work as the barrel bolts and would look much uglier.

    3-in-1 Crib plans

    I have all the pieces cut for the toddler bed conversion. The full bed conversion is simpler, just two 6" wide long boards, a ledge and a few slats. I already have the holes drilled in the posts for both the crib/toddler bed 52 7/8" on center and the full bed 54 7/8" on center. The M6 100mm...

    Here's my take on the 3 in 1 plans in sawmill white ash and cherry, mineral oil and bees wax finish. Its soild and heavy, I told my daughter and son in law, if a tornado, flip over the crib and get inside :) BTW Products America went out of business. Lucky I'm re-using the spring frame from a...

    I'm such a Redneck

    I decided the keezer needed a stainless back splash for the drip tray. I only needed a 12" x 14" piece of something thin. But drove out of the local scrap yard with a piece of 4' x 16" 1/8" thick formed stainless countertop. After a lot of sawing & sanding - I managed to get a good piece out of...
