    How many slivers do you have currently?

    One of my worst was in the barn. I have rough cut lumber on the walls. I was reaching for a pair of sissors that hang on a nail to cut open a bale of hay. I got a big 'sliver' right under the finger nail. If I had cameras in the barn I likely could have won $10k on AMERICAS FUNNIEST VIDEOS...

    Dust collector

    This is an EXCELLENT price. You would do well to grab this. I bought the exact same for $150 about a year ago and rarely see them for less than $200. Mine is mobile and I use it on TS, band saw, planer and jointer. Direct hook up. No problems.

    Raleigh area SHOP Crawl - 12/7/19 Updated 12/4/19

    Hey Phil, Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it. Just have too much to do before a Christmas trip to TN in a few weeks. Seems like there are several in waiting for spots, so please offer up my place to the next in line. Hope you get this before sending out the final instructions!

    Needing use of large planer for one board -- near Cary

    Isn't this the perfect opportunity to go buy a new toy to help take care of this!? :) A nice 4" belt sander would take care of that pretty quick. I have a 20" planer but am probably about 45 min to an hour away in Four Oaks. I'm sure others will be around to offer up assistance. If not, let...

    Need input on shop window size

    Another thought on your windows. If you know any local small owner contractors/builders you might check with them. I recently did an addition to my house. He ordered the wrong windows and had to replace at his own cost. I can imagine this might be a regular occurrence for others. They might...

    Need input on shop window size

    I agree with others about the wall space taking priority. I have two small windows, not sure of the size, maybe 28x30. I did want to be able to see out, but when in the shop, I'm usually focused on other things than looking outside. :) Lighting can be provided with good and ample LED's. I DID...

    Spectacular! Speaking of time and hours. Just how long does one like this take you to complete?

    Sanding error

    I'm all about added character, but those just looked a little too man made. :)

    Sanding error

    I hate when this happens. Couldn't see it till after stained. Had to start over. Bummer. One of the downsides to a heavy duty belt sander. (Upper left corner) 2nd attempt came out much better. Just lost about half a days shop time.

    Best method to apply stickers

    The bag box is a great idea. I'll have to incorporate that into mine. Thanks!

    Best method to apply stickers

    How about paint, BB rattle can spray shellac, apply stickers, then a water based General Finish poly? Or just more shellac?

    Best method to apply stickers

    I'm making a corn hole game set for my sister. She bought some College Football mascot stickers to apply on the top of the boards. Should I paint, apply sticker and then apply a clear top coat? Or paint, apply top coat, then apply sticker and another clear coat? Or some other method? I...

    Finish on Poplar

    I'm thinking about getting some poplar slabs similar to this photo. I really like the green colors. When clear coating, would it maintain the color? Any suggestions on a finish to highlight the color tones?
