    So after nearly two years in our new house my wife is fed up with the basement woodshop. She doesn't like the noise or the mess the dogs track in from it (you have to go through the shop to get into the finished area of the basement from outside). We are talking about building a new detached...

    Hey Gang- The lumber company I work for has a job opening currently. Would it be acceptable to mention the job in the forum? We're not looking to avoid traditional job websites, we just wanted to go to the source, rather than filter through every Tom, Dick and Harry in the regular avenues.

    A client of mine wanted me to build a barn door for them so they could install a sliding barn door to cover the closet in their bedroom. They had previously said that the condos they live in had are the products of some shady construction habits and that they did not think there were many studs...

    Just getting into scroll saws for the first time I want to start off with a used and inexpensive model. I located this Tradesman 16" model 8355. It runs and needs minimal cleaning.
