    Table saw adjustments

    Today when ripping some boards I noticed a gap between boards and fence at the end of the table. A quick check showed the fence face significantly (maybe 3/16ths?) Out of parallel with the miter slot. I adjusted it to be parallel, but I wonder: 1. How often should a table saw setup be checked...

    Source for Maple-look Melamine near Raleigh?

    Anyone know where to find light wood-grained color melamine sheets? Want to add a couple of shelves to existing kitchen cabinets with shelves, and we can only find white. LOML would like them to all be wood-toned and I'm trying to get out of finishing veneered plywood ;) Capital City...

    Rare and Imaginary Tools

    I am exhibiting my tool collection in May: To be clear, these aren't tools, they're my sculptures based on tools. Many are based on woodworking tools, I think this group might especially appreciate a few of them. Or maybe just be more confused? My website is under construction now, but...

    Anyone know how to get Matte finish on epoxy?

    Thoughts on boring concentric hole in end of baseball bat

    I need to drill a hole in the fat end of a baseball bat so I can insert a peg to rotate the bat. I would like for it to be parallel with the bat to minimize wobble. Any suggestions on how to bore the hole when the reference surfaces are tapered? Mike

    Laser routing and engraving

    A recent email from Woodcraft has me thinking about the capabilities of laser routers. Anyone know of a shop that can do a couple of small, one-off pieces? Given the investment I'm guessing most businesses are set up for bigger jobs or production work. Thanks, Mike

    Shop Tables plus stealth gloat

    Quick, look away if you seek fine woodworking. This is shop furniture - primitive and functional working tables. A couple years ago a Raleigh lumberyard offered 10’ 4x6 SYP timbers for dirt cheap. Being of the frugal sort I picked up a load and stickered them in my shop for a couple of years...
