    Combining stock

    Here is a question from one who is inexperienced: If I have two boards that are 4/4, can I glue them together to get the 8/4 thickness that I desire or am I better off starting with an 8/4 board. Look forward to reading what you all have to say.

    Does anyone use a scratch stock for beading? I would like to add a bead to the hall table I'm working on and need to make a scratch stock that will handle curved pieces. I'm mostly concerned with the holder. If you have one, will you post a picture of it so I can see how to make one?
