    Thanks for the replies. I've used stuff from some online suppliers on my 712. I've even used paper from HF. I was really impressed with the mirka. I'll give the klingspor a try. Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk

    Woodmaster 725 drumsander

    I recently purchased the drum sander attachment for my woodmaster planer. It came with a roll of mirka 80 and 120 grit paper. I was impressed with the performance of the paper. What do you use and where do you buy it? I want to buy bulk rolls online. Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk

    Suitability of Oak & poplar for end grain cutting boards?

    I've use red oak cutting boards for decades. If youre worried about bacteria, the CDC recommends 1 tablespoon of bleach to 1 quart of water for dis-infecting. I wash mine with warm soapy water and wipe excess water and let dry.

    Popular Woodworking - Greene and Greene

    Big fan of Greene and Greene. There was a shop in Tucson that did G@G replicas out of mesquite with desert ironwood pegs. Beautiful work and the most comfortable chairs I’ve ever sat in!

    Need to have a couple of slabs surfaced

    there is a shop in New Bern that has a 36" Porter with 2 Shelix heads. 1 for flattening, 1 for thickness. It's an impressive machine. I think they are pretty reasonable as well. Precision Molding.

    Cabinet pulls drilling guide

    Fastcap made a pretty good jig. I used it when I was an independent millwork installer. I found that jigs are at there best when you have a pile of drawer heads that are the same size. Even if you have 3 different drawer sizes, there must be enough to make it worth changing the jig. Otherwise...

    Drilling holes into tile?

    You can buy carbide bits designed for tile at lowes or ace. They typically come in 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch. They don't require a hammer drill but use a low rpm sow you don't burn the bit.

    Can plywood be successfully butt glued?

    Try edge gluing a sample piece. I think you will be quite satisfied with the result.

    Can plywood be successfully butt glued?

    I,ve edge glued fairly large pieces of ply without issue except getting a consistently flush surface. The thickness of ply can vary a little so you wind up burning through the veneer when sanding.

    Japanese woodworking

    I love this! I have a copy of Japanese Woodworking and have attempted at least one of the joints. Definitely something to aspire to. I've been wanting to do a blind mitered dovetail for a buffet I have in mind. This video was very enlightening.

    Recovery from mistakes

    True. Many design innovations come from mistakes. Also, they are only mistakes if you don't learn from them.

    Blum drawers

    I believe you are referring to the notches in the drawer back at the bottom corners to allow the blum motion glides to pass through. I usually use a dado blade.

    Cabinet material advice

    MDF and melamine are ok for boxes, just heavy to handle.

    Cabinet material advice

    Pre-finished maple ply is great for cabinet boxes. Light weight and fairly durable. Saves a ton of time. White or maple melamine provides a very durable surface, but it's heavy. Finishing cabinet interiors is a drag! spend the time on the doors and drawer heads, trim etc.
