    Cutting a spline in a long piece of wood

    I am building a patio table and ran into the issue where the 45degree joints at each end of the table just do not seem to have much strength. I was thinking of cutting a spline for the corners but two of the boards are about 87" long and would be hard to hold on a table saw to cut the spline...

    Some Long Overdue Progress on Lingerie Chest

    I started this lingerie chest over 2 years ago, since then there has been one delay or stumbling block on top of another. Finally, today I made some progress. The major problem was how to get around the varying depth of the dado's in the sides for the dust panels. My guess is that the spacers I...

    I have the G1023Z saw with the 25" rail Shop Fox Fence listed below: http://www.grizzly.com/outlet/Fence-w-Standard-Rails/G4722 I currently don't have issues with parallelism but just don't have enough rip capacity and have ordered the 49" rip length rails. Unfortunately, the rails arrived...

    How long for Poly to cure?

    I am finally about finished with my son's crib, except for some polyurethane on a few parts. If he will not/cannot be in contact with any wood surfaces, then is it OK to put him in it fairly soon? Will the poly give off any harmful fumes for any length of time after it is dry? My wife plans...

    How long to let lumber "relax" after the initial milling before final dimensioning?

    Out of curiosity, how long do you folks let your lumber sit after the initial milling? I have been milling mine just to the point where the lumber is smooth (usually ends up ~1/8" over final thickness) then letting it sit for a week before re-flattening, squaring and milling to the final...

    Semi-hollow Body Bass Guitar - new long term project

    Well a few years ago at the NCWoodWorker annual picnic, I won a book entitled Make your own electric guitar & bass.

    Do you have "free" unlimited long distance?

    Even though cell phone plans and home phone bundles advertise with "free" long distance, there's no such thing as free. You just don't pay by the minute. But since that's too wordy to type, I'll use the term "free" as well. I've been looking at teleconference providers. There's two options: You...
