    Miter Saw Recommendations?

    FWIW, the dewalt 780/790 has a down light led so the shadow cast on the workpiece is very accurate, including being able to see the teeth without activating the saw. I can attach a Bosch hose directly to the saw, which is the same hose I use for the festool tools, Milwaukee cordless router...

    Hollow Chisel Mortiser or Domino Jointer

    I have both and use them differently. For solid furniture joinery, I prefer the mortiser and table saw tenoning jig. I enjoy the build and solid feel of a mortise and tenon joint. I use the Domino more frequently. If I had to give one up, I’d give up the mortiser and make mortises any number of...

    White cabinet doors.

    Aqua-coat grain filler is an option. It is generally easy to apply a few layers, although scaled to 20 doors may be more onerous than other options mentioned. I’ve used it for smaller projects. I would envision mdf center panel and aqua-coat treatment of frames.

    Stair rail configuration help

    Jim- You are right about the distance between the two rails. I might try your stepped approach. Until I get done installing new rails and returns, it might not be much extra work to wrap around for a continuous rail. I'll have to decide. Charley, I'll use my local lumber yard, Caudell Lumber...
