I was watching “How do they do it” today and saw the article on the Russian Nesting Dolls. FANTASTIC! The two biggest reasons: 1) The workers are all women! They can out-turn most of us guys and not break a sweat – of c...
I am wondering if anyone has used Titebond’s Fluorescent wood glue? I was going over their website to get the particulars on one of their other glues and saw this as an offer. Here’s what it looks like under a black light aft...
Recently, I have been doing a ton of projects that require me to stick a template to some wood so I can use a router with a flush-trim bit. I never found a double-sided tape that I liked. Either they weren’t sticky enough and were unreli...
