Cherry kitchen cabinet finish - 9 replies

This is a general fishing expedition for thoughts on finishing cherry. I’ve read several of the posts here and elsewhere but thought I’d throw some ideas out there.

Wynn vs Damn Filters - 28 replies

I’ve been reading the forums for a while on a variety of topics. Now looking to get my first dust collector and I’m trying to decide on the filter system to use. I’m pretty set on doing a modified 2 HP Harbor Freight system based on what I’ve read here. I’ve noticed that a lot of people have purchased cartridge...
