    Vacuum Press

    Your Thoughts on DeWalt 734 vs 735 Planer

    I've had the Makita and it was ok, I then upgraded to the DW 734 and it was also pretty good but very noisy. I finally settled on the DW 735 w/outfeed tables and it was heads above the other two.

    New Keepsake Box

    Hank, not sure of the metal. Positively not solid brass at that price. I'm assuming "pot metal" with brass plate. They are not flimsy and hold well. They have a spring sleeve with w/a ball bearing in the lower half that secures the hasp. Overall I'm delighted with them.

    New Whiskey Cabinet

    Well, I built another whiskey cabinet. My wife showed a picture of the previously posted cabinet, a consignment piece, to one of her friends, and she asked me to build one for her hubby, who re-did their basement with a new bar. She had specifics to hold two bottles and two Glencairn whiskey...

    New Box

    Michael, the side rail hinges are easy with a router table. See YouTube for "Neat Hinge Installation". The latch is from Brusso, and they have instructions on their website.
