    PT Lumber Decking Finish

    Question for all of you since it has been a while since I have finished a PT deck. One of my guys just built a new PT deck and is looking to see what the best finish is to use.

    First Attempt at Cabinets

    This is my first attempt to build a cabinet. My wife wanted one for her sewing equipment and has decided that she wants to paint it. Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement. My plan is to build some more cabinets for my garage for tool storage, but I won't use Baltic Birch...

    New Workbench

    Good Morning, I am a very new woodworker, but I decided to try to make a workbench so that I could continue to learn, as it seemed to be a logical place to start. I know that the end vise is abnormally placed, but I have a very small space and it was the only place to put it (Pictures are not...

    New Member from Raleigh

    Good Morning, I am a new member from Raleigh. I have been fixing things throughout my life, but I got into woodworking after purchasing a new house. Once I finished all of my major projects (18 months later), I had accumulated a number of needed tools and have been slowly getting into...
