DeWalt ROS - Buffing Pad? - 5 replies
I have a DeWalt ROS (D26453K) and would like to know if there’s a compatible buffing pad for it so that I can buff out paste wax on my table saw, jointer, etc. I wouldn’t use a dedicated buffer enough to justify buying one so am looking for an alternative.

Freud DD208 Dado Set - 3 replies
Yesterday while paying a visit to the big Orange store, I saw they had a Freud DD208 Dado set (~$95). This is the Freud Diablo brand which I wasn’t really familiar with.

Let’s say I buy a set of roundover bits that contains sizes 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 3/4”. For a roundover edge profile, would I normally pick the size that is around half of my stock thickness? I also understand that roundover bits can be used for beading as well but I’m not ...

Need advice - building shop & garage cabinets - 22 replies
I just joined LJ today and have posted a few of my pieces. As you will tell from the pics, my woodworking experience has been limited mostly to smaller scale projects. I want to learn how to properly build cabinets and starting with my woodshop and garage seems somewhat safe (if I mess up it doesn’t really matter much). Better organizat...
