    Hickory Table Top

    would having that frame harm the integrity of the table top? my wife seemed to really like it. I could possibly talk her into mounting it on the underside like mentioned to give the appearance of a thicker top

    Hickory Table Top

    Attatched is what i meant by frame. Its a border around the table top similar to a picture frame. Im sorry for the lack of clarity. Ive seen mitered corners on tables before and love the look but Im afraid it would crack/split on me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Hickory Table Top

    Im looking to build my wife a new dining table. Over outside dimensions should be about 36” X 72”. Initial thoughts are to do six 5 1/2” boards, plus some 3 1/2” breadboards. Im leaning on using 1” material, so to give it a thicker look I will add a 1 1/2” - 2” thick border. In the past I have...

The fan is an Airplate S3 which is primarily made for flush mounting in large electrical cabinets to blow out the hot air. The good thing about these...

    Wonky counter top

    I see the fire concerns. This wont be an everyday cover by any means. It will be brought out for family get togethers and other small parties where the stove wont be on. Just for more counterspace for other pots etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Wonky counter top

    I made all cuts using a table saw, so i had a fairly good 90 degree edge to glue to. I think i may have clamped a little too tight and it twisted or bowed a little. I have a local shop that has a large planner. Do you think that would be the easiest solution? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Wonky counter top

    I guess this is more common of an issue with thinner stock. Using regular 2-by stock may not have this much of an issue. This was my first edge glue and biscuit joint by the way Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    End Grain Staining

    I will be building a new table top for a dresser we picked up. I have never had good luck getting a nice smooth surface on the end grain. What is the typical method for staining and finishing end grain? Im aware that it can become darker due to how porous the end grain is. Should I sand to...

    Candle Holder

    Heres a quick and dirty tea light holder. I made this from some scrap walnut mr ken was gracious enough to let go of. Started out as rough wood with live edge. It ripped it down on the table saw; cant recall measurements but it was somewhere around a 2x2x20. Then I got a 1 1/2" forstner bit and...

    Audio - How to "tighten" up the Bass

    Porting/venting a speaker or subwoofer enclosure doesnt automatically make a speaker/subwoofer muddy sounding. By adding a port, you are tuning the enclosure. And the diameter and length of the port anlong with the volume of the enclosure tunes it to a different frequency. Think of it like a...
