    How often do you sharpen planer blades?

    After two kitchens, several pieces of furniture all from rough lumber, my conventional planer blades still appear to be going strong. It’s been a few years since I changed them. Really surprised, or maybe I have just forgotten how nice a new set leaves the finish. Normally touch up with a RO...

He takes orders from builders, customers, and supplies cabinets, coordinates the...

    Need CNC help

    Thanks, that’s quite a drive for me. If anyone closer can do that with a laser it will also work. I have not made the doors yet, and they will be painted once done.

    Using exterior stain coating indoors

    The builder was very pleased with his expensive floating shelves, and a deck/siding finish. But, remind me never to try that again. I can get the same look with a flat conversion varnish and Transtint in a fraction of the time this took.

    Using exterior stain coating indoors

    Doing very fancy floating shelves in Maple with sanding up to 320. Big job for a big builder, this being his own home he is building. He specified an exterior Sherwin Williams stain, which is also the final coating, he used it on his front door. The guy builds 55 houses a year, so I figured he...

    Looking for a spray finishing student

    Phil, I have switched to conversion varnish, took me a while to get it dialed in, but as far as durability and time saving hard to beat. Has to cure at 68F or higher though.

    Jointer then Planer or vice versa?

    It’s against all the rules. First you have to learn how to flatten a board within 0.001” with a hand plane, then you may purchase a jointer to save some time.;)

    Repairing a Bent Table Saw Top

    You would need a shop with a hydraulic press and a surface grinder. With shop rates these days, might be cheaper to explore another auction.

    Power Feeder Mounting/Install

    Nice job Jeremy! Interesting there are no rules for which side of the shaper the power feeder should be mounted. Mine is mounted on the left side on both my shapers. I use two feather boards to keep things against the fence.

    Finish curing machine

    Nope, only the AC filters. No problems though, using fast dry finishes, but to cure hard they take a bit of time. My shop is clean when I spray.
