    Rail and Stile Router bits

    I am in the market for my first set of rail and stile/raised panel router bits. I see a lot of difference in price from $53 for an off brand (Yanico) to over $200 for the name brands (Freud, Whiteside etc.). I have read the review but I am always skeptical about who is writing those. Looking...

    bathroom fan ducting?

    I just did a master bathroom addition and had my final inspection last week. I bought a light, exhaust fan, heater combination from Broan. It isn't too loud and it is nice to have the extra heat in the winter. I ducted it to the soffit and it and it passed inspection just fine. Doing so...

    Bathroom Addition

    My wife and I are considering a bathroom addition that would be about 10'x10'. It would be right next to the master bedroom and would also butt up against a porch. The mast bedroom is on a traditional foundation and the porch is on cinder block pilings. In the interest of saving money I am...

    Portable saw mills

    Oh yes, I have checked it. There are a few people around here and I did business with someone near Bath, NC. I forget the name but we had a great time touring the farm and seeing all the stacks of wood drying. I'd love to go back, however, I need a planer and jointer first.

    Hard maple

    I can usually get between 5-10% off at Anchor Hardwoods in Wilmington when I mention this group. I also know they have a store somewhere in Raleigh, but I have never been to it so I don't know if they have the same policies.

    electrician in Wake Forest

    Well I made a run from my house to a garage of about 125'. I got an electrician to estimate the run and it was in the thousands of dollars to bury to cable. I decided to make the run on my own. I did, however, have room in my panel. I would say that is the biggest problem. As far as the...

    I hate drawer slides

    I ended up getting some bees wax and rubbed that on the runners I installed. The drawer slide like a dream. Part of the case construction called for a "drawer seperater" which is really a piece of 3/4 ply between each drawer pocket (clients request, I think its waste.) So to stop the drawer...
