Interested in your thoughts/methods- prep and Tung oil - 3 replies

Yeah, Dust collection, this is what I am thinking... - 37 replies

Ok guys (and gals), I suppose I will pick up some DC “system” before I get the jointer. I am in the process of building my benches and got a nice coat of dust even after blowing out the garage.
