Crosscut sled sticks - 17 replies

I have made a new crosscut sled that doesn’t seem to glide easily. It doesn’t seem to be to be the glide bars, but maybe is. I get it to flow smoothly, remove it, put it back and it sticks. (?). I treat the saw surface with BoeshieldT90. Could it be that?

Cabinets (wood selection) - 7 replies

I’m planning to build a bathroom vanity. I can’t decide what type of wood to choose for the carcass and front frame. I’m told that it would be painted (although I’d prefer to use oak on front and stain it). But I got to keep the wife happy so I have to use a wood that takes paint well. Any suggestions ?

Router Question - 4 replies

Hi, I’m new here and have a question about router horsepower. I have a 1-3/4 HP now but don’t know if that is powerful enough for cope cutting (stile & rail). I do the raised panel cuts on the table saw, so don’t need the router for that. Always used a shaper in the past, but don’t have that anymore. Anyone with some knowledge on this ? Thanks
