Any ideas on how you might cut/inlay this? - 13 replies

A friend has asked me to make him a small coffin for his ashes. It’s made from Cypress wood, which I’ve never worked with before and hopefully will never again because it’s so soft and dents from anything. He wants of his cross inlayed in the top but only about half the depth of the cross. So far the only methods I though of is to outline the...

I’m new to spraying and wondered if there are a techniques or steps for spraying a rectangle box with measurements similar to: 20” length X 6” width X 8” depth?

Question for Cyclone Owners - 10 replies

I’m wondering what HP (horsepower) people are using for their cyclones in the garage shops. Recently Finewoodworking wrote an article stating a garage workshop only needs a 2HP but then the article states even with a 2HP you should install your most dust making equipment as close as possible to the cyclone. I would like to know what ...

Woodworkers in California, I need your Help - 8 replies

I have searched all over looking for SDR35. Everyone I contact states SDR 35 only comes in gasket form. There’s a gasket on one end of the tubing. The woodworkers that I’ve talked to, tell me not to get the gasket ones but the regular green ones. I was told with the white ones I’ll need to glue them together because friction isn’t enough b...

How would you secure small miter corners and a question about biscuits - 37 replies

I’m making the doors to my TV stand. Since the doors are rather small, 16” X 7-1/4”, I used a 1-1/2” frame. The panel is wood so if won’t be glued in place. Do you think the miter corners will be secured enough on their own with only glue? I was planning on using biscuits but two problems with this. First the biscuits have to be cut down so smal...

Problem with Raised Panel Doors...What am I doing wrong? - 13 replies

I’m having a problem with the raised panel. This is my first time making raised panel doors. I have made cope and stile with 1/4 plywood before but not raised panel. I’m using a Rockler raise panel cutter with a back cutter. My wood is ¾” thick. The problem is, my understanding is using a back cutter allows the panel to be flush with the rail...

I would like your opinion about unusual size cabinet doors - 4 replies

I’m making a TV stand. I had plan on adding flush raised panel doors. After making the case, I’m thinking the door openings are too small and might look strange with raised panel. Each door opening is 16” Wide by 7-3/8” high. So either the rail and stiles would have to be rather narrow or the raised panel would have to be. I also thought of o...

I’ve always use Titebond or Titebond III. Do anyone use something different and why? I’m doing a 48” long by 26” wide glue up. I’m using just two boards so there’s only one glue line and I’m a little worried about strength so I thought I’d ask with everyone else uses. This is a photo of th...

Filling African Mohogany - 2 replies

I’m making a TV stand and I plan on filling the mohogany. Is there any reason I should fill both sides of the top or the inside parts that aren’t visible? I figure filling is only for show and not for stability but I wanted to make sure this was right. THanksAngela

How Much Should the Top of the TV Stand Overhang? - 7 replies

I’m making the top of my tv stand and I was wondering how much should the top overhang? I plan on added some type of molding below the top, maybe a cove or something like that. Since I haven’t made something like this before, I didn’t know if there’s sort of a standard for how much the top should overhang the main cabinet. The stand is ...

Does anyone sharpen their Ridgid planer blades? - 7 replies

I know the knives are “disposable” and Ridgid doesn’t recommend it because the knives are indexed so sharpening the knives is going to reduce you maximum depth of cut. But if this doesn’t matter, I was wondering if anyone sharpens their own Ridgid planer blades?
