    Screwing and Gluing Joints

    Clearly this is a reason (excuse) to buy more clamps!

    Clamps on FB Marketplace

    I also don’t see the issue. The seller makes some money (and certainly puts in some effort) and willing buyers get clamps at a reasonable price. How exactly is anyone harmed?

    5/4 Cedar

    Mike, Most of the rough cut wood or wood intended for woodworking i’ve encountered is true to size, so a 5/4 board is really 1.25 inches thick. Construction grade lumber and most everything sold at the borgs is measured as you described. That’s one of many reasons woodworkers seem to...

    Propane for hot water and a fireplace insert

    We have a 500 gallon in ground propane tank that heats the house, powers the range, and feeds the Rianni tankless water heater. If you decide not to own your own tank, price and service are huge. We started with Amerigas and they were very difficult to deal with and expensive. We switched...

    Spicing It Up

    Function over form. I see that it’s called “desk mic stand” but i’m still unsure how you’ll use this.

    How Wide The Board

    Anna White’s “woodworking” projects can be completed in a weekend and don’t require thousands of dollars worth of expensive tools. I once worked with a guy who spent $5,000 on machines before he built his first project but I think most people aren’t like that. Clearly, most members here have...

    I've never had any training in wood work.

    I’m a woodworker under 40. I have two kids, 5 & 3, and a third on the way. I have a full time job and am a part time PhD student. I haven’t meaningfully used my shop since Christmas. Lately, I barely have time to mow my yard. This site is basically my only connection to the hobby.

    DeWalt Service Center BEWARE!

    I am just curious and am not implying anything by this question. Did you save the original warranty contract from 1979 for all these years?

    Traditional/historic furniture vs. modern/post modern/abstract...

    Re: an answer, but not to the question you asked... I'll take a stab at your original question. I like more modern designs and apparently the Danish modern type antiques are sought after right now. My suggestion would be to think about how young people live today if you want to sell them...

    Tired of big box store junk Lumber

    I started with less expensive rough cut lumber. Rough cut red and white oak, poplar, or even maple won't set you back that much. You can do a ton with a six inch jointer.

    Lowes will match Amazon

    I tried two hour delivery. It took longer than two hours. The delivery driver blamed traffic. I wouldn't count on the delivery window at peak times.
