    Not exactly a work of art,

    For the record, I do not have a $20K slider. But wow that thing does look sweet, like in a video where he folds the wagon to cut a miter. Meanwhile, back to the jig.

    Not exactly a work of art,

    Clamp a piece to be cut between the Fritz and Frans components on the slider. Kinda of a replacement for the left side of a table saw.

    Not exactly a work of art,

    but it seems functional. It's my new Fritz and Frans jig. I'll test it when I find the leopard wood. It is time to make another lighthouse. This lighthouse will go the University of Central Florida' Engineering Management Honor Society. I do have a piece of Rosewood that I don't remember...

    Right place to buy hardwood flooring

    My experience is that the cheaper pre-finished maple and Brazilian Koa flooring from the yellow store had more than small variations in height. My current pre-finished Ash plywood flooring, with chamfered corners, is very flat, very consistent heights. It also costs much more than the yellow...

    Another flooring question

    And splines are easy to make!! Especially when you see what LL wants for them. I may have some left over.

    Another flooring question

    What if you 'boxed' the hall and then 'boxed' the bedroom. I mean, run 2-5 widths around each perimeter and then did a unidirectional fill inside the created fields?

    Another flooring question

    Looks like a chance to go in two directions. I don't think I would worry too much about the joist direction. This is a low traffic area. If the floor squeaks, treat it with talc from the pool hall supply.

    Another flooring question

    Right way? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If the room layout is confusing, have some fun and do a herringbone pattern, LOL! [They asked me if I wanted to put in a pattern when I ordered my flooring.] I run flooring with the long run of the room. For the current house, we used random...

    Right place to buy hardwood flooring

    A lot of places to buy hardwood flooring. A lot of differences in quality. My observation is you can't really see the effect of quality until you put some down. I've installed Bella (solid) and Uptown (wood plywood with a sandable wear layer). Big difference in price and quality, IMHO.

    Right place to buy hardwood flooring

    "...make DIY hardwood flooring..." doest that mean you want to cut the tongue and grooves yourself? Are you wanting advice on where to buy cutters, boards, tooling/jigs, wood, plywood, or what?

    Hate that for you and us. I think you are supposed to take a spoonful of something to make the medicine go down. I don't remember what. Maybe that was for forgetfulness.

    Good customer service

    Props to 80/20 also. I ordered a 2525 and a 2550. I received a 2550 and a 2020. I notified 80/20 and they overnighted the correct item to me, no questions (they did ask for a picture), no charge. A week later they contacted me to make sure I had received what I needed.
