    I live in Texas, so heat is more of an issue than cold. I have a thin, el-cheapo alum. garage door. I decided to invest @ 60 dollars in those 1.5 inch foam insulation sheets at the big box and cut them to fit my door. It took me less than an hour. So far it has made a difference in dampening...

    Anyone know of hardware or a mechanism one can build to lock a stack of small drawers (as in a jewelry chest) with a single lock/key? I know sometimes desk drawers have something called a "gang lock" to lock three drawers at once, but I'm wondering how it translates to "finer" woodworking. Any...

    I've built a desk and need to make two doors for it. The desk will be stained a dark color. The top is made of a single sheet of plywood cut in an irregular shape and has a routed round-over edge. There are two cabinets on either side, one for a computer and one for storage. The computer monitor...

    Going to make corner shelving with a 36" x 89" door. Cut it right down the middle and have some thick ass shelves. I think it's oak so i'll just get oak shelves to match. Throw up some molding at the top and bottom. Not really experienced with stain though. This door will sand up easily and...

    Good day all, this would be my first forum post. I got a grizzly G0661 contractor table saw (2hsp 240volt) a couple weeks back. I have been cutting baltic birch plywood and oak with no burning but have now gone onto hard maple. While cutting the maple I get bad buring and bad saw marks on...

    A few days ago there was a thread about repairing an exterior door. There were some suggestions about some epoxy products to use. I can't seem to find it now. I have an exterior, south facing solid core wood door that has some delamination. I would like to remove the damaged wood, fill it...

    In the process of building my next project, a Narrow Amish Cabinet, using published plans in a 1995 Rodale book entitled Country Pine I found what appears to be a "hinging" mistake. The first drawing shows the cabinet door with NO 'rabbet'. You have to look closely at the bottom right to see...

    Ok, so I have searched through a couple of different threads for a solid answer to this question but didn't find an answer that would satisfy me. Here's what is bouncing around my head: As some of you may know through my recent threads, I have been drying a bunch of red oak that I plan to use...

    My workshop aka garage has an entryway door, 32"x80". It is 40 years old and has rot on the bottom. I am planning to replace it with a Lowes douglas fir door that has glass panes on the top half. The problem with the original door is that it has rotted on the bottom. When I paint the new...

    http://tinyurl.com/k9re2kc Seller says he bought this item new (sometime in 1985) but then for some reason, he never used it, meaning he never even opened it. Now, he's asking $29.99 or best offer for this 28/29-year-old tool with its original packaging. Date code: 7RLZ1 (December 1984)...

    I've been thinking for a long time about making a V-drum sander. I've got a tiny shop, so space is a premium. I have a Delta bench grinder and rarely use it. I want to keep it for when I do actually need it, but the idea of giving it double duty really appeals to me. The motor speed at its...

    Good afternoon Jocks, I just got my first real profitable kitchen cabinet job, so decided to form an LLC and do this right, even if only a part time deal. Now, I'm looking for suppliers in and around the North Florida, South Georgia area for the slides, pull outs, hinges, etc. I found...

    Hello All, I am new to this forum and expecting expertise solutions. I am planning to remodel my existing house in couple of months. Being part of it I want to have a brief idea on present remodeling costs in and around Laguna Niguel area. Would any one suggest where should I get estimates and...

    I've been tinkering with the idea of replicating some old (100yr+) doors. I'm trying to make a decision on construction type. I don't want to do laminated, because the edges of the door would give away that it is new construction. Traditional r&s doesn't fit the look I'm going for. Think old...
