    Bow saw

    The folding corona saw worked well going through a 6-7” white cedar.

    I ordered dual locking casters similar to these from that seller: I wanted steel and poly that locked. They have worked well under my Unisaw dolly/cart since installing 6/2018. I...

    Abrasive Belts Bandsaw

    These came with a Rockwell 14” BS that I bought. I don’t plan on using them or have the attachment that makes them work with my BS. Does anyone have a use for these? The belts are 91” long. They’re free to whomever wants them

    Bow saw

    Thanks all! Ended up getting the folding corona saw mentioned earlier. Looks like a common complaint is the teeth aren’t completely covered when closed. I do t plan on putting it in a backpack, so not an issue for me!

    Bow saw

    Thanks Rick! I was looking at that style as well. Do you like the corona brand? I see folks prefer the corona or the tarvol brand on amazon. I’ve never used one but it seems similar to what’s on the pole pruner.

    Bow saw

    Preferences for bow saws for pruning? I’m not taking down a forest, but just some light pruning around the yard. Simple fiskers for $11 Or bahco for $28 Or another brand? I’ve only used one of these when cutting down Christmas trees. Does the handle really make that big of a difference? I...

    Suggestions for Home & Kitchen

    I have cherry countertops finished in multiple coats of waterlox in 2 of our bathrooms. The one bathroom is the main half bath used by everyone (I have 4 kids under 8) and has seen a lot of use without any signs of the finish breaking down or need for renewal. I ended up using waterlox for...

    Porter Cable Router Table

    MLCS, Bosch and bench dog make a small router table. Another option would be to build a simple plywood box and use an insert or mount the router directly to the box. I had planned to build a full size table with cabinet for my router but have found my bench top solution of an old laminate...

    Porter Cable Router Table

    I had the delta router/shaper that had an integrated router that looked a lot like the porter cable table you posted. I wasn’t a fan of the single speed router and sold it. The fence system was a little annoying as it’s two parts and the table grooves seemed to catch what I was routing. The...

    Great story! And I really like the saw! But you’re not helping me to talk myself out of a 14” RAS!

    12” Sliding Miter Saw Blade Recommendation

    The Oshlun blade arrived before my saw and now that I have both I tried a few test cuts simple trim and it worked well. For comparison the Oshlun blade is a bit thicker than the OE dewalt.

    Is gel stain the “in thing” now?

    Now it looks too nice compared to the other! Are you refinishing the whole chair or just repairing parts?

    Is gel stain the “in thing” now?

    Yes gel stain has been the thing for a bit. I used it more like paint when I wanted to turn poplar dark brown and was feeling too lazy to use a dye followed by seal coat and stain. I don’t necessarily like it, but I don’t dislike it either. I still tend to use liquid, albeit usually natural, to...
