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...

dust collection - 3 replies

It stumped the guys at my local Woodcraft store. Any thoughts? I am using a new 3/8 ” hook tooth. It does the same thing with any bl...

furniture repair - 2 replies

Thoughts on repairing antique furniture. Failed joints that have been very badly fixed several times in the past, meaning, layers of old wood glue on old dowels and on the split, or failed joint.

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 ...
