beadboard paneling - 2 replies
Question; Is there a difference in the basic bead board paneling that is typically sold at Home depot, vs, more up scale building supply stores? The 4’x8’x 3/16” panels sold at HD seem to need a lot of sanding, minor repair, etc., before you can begin to finish. Not looking for specific wood types, basic pine is fine ( they wil...

Air filtration - 7 replies
Any thoughts, or recommendations on air filtration? My garage-shop is about 4,000 sq.ft. The only one I have looked at is the JDS Air-tech 2000 sold by woodcraft. I currently can not afford a real dust collection system, so I use a shop vac connected to whatever I’m using. Looking to get the really fine stuff that hands in the air. Thanks ...
