    Trashcans on Etsy

    Several years ago I built a bathroom vanity for a neighbor. He also wanted a matching dirty clothes hamper. The one I made was on the same principle as these thrash bins with a lift out net bag hung on internal hooks. Customer was very happy.

    Board Length

    agree with Henry W for best fit. Tkae 5 of your coffee mugs and lay them out with spacing like that shown. Measure the length - adding just a bit on the ends. Estimate that way, AND ensure that this piece fits where it is intended to hang. George

    I hear you Mike. I'm in the middle of fighting Medicare for oxygen for my COPD. They have so many i's to dot and t's to cross I probably won't need it when it gets approved. George

    Looking for a floor drill press in the Triangle area

    I have the fifteen year old version of this one. I have replaced the chuck with a keyless (just for convenience) and made a table with replaceable cutout for drill area. For medium use it has been great for me. YMMV...

    Should I get the contractor or professional sawstop

    I can't say for sure with SawStop but in general the cabinet saw has a smaller overall footprint than the contractor when you count the motor hanging off the back. You had said you were tight on space so the cabinet saw may be better from that view point. George

    Living With Arthritis in the Hands

    My wife has it in one of her wrists. Every six to nine months (when ever the pain returns) the Orthopod gives her a shot of cortisone (sp) in the wrist and it lasts until the next time. George

    what oil for hand plane maintenance?

    I have never used anything on the few planes I have (and I don't use them often either). My question is - would not the oil transfer to the wood as you use the plane or is the amount so minuscule that it doesn't matter?

    Project Glass

    Just a hint - get 'non-glare' glass for picture frames. Much better outcome without the potential glare messing up viewing the picture. George

    ISO Planer

    I have an old (15 or so years) DeWalt 733. It has real knives that can be, and have been, sharpened. I have had no problems and have no reason to ever change out for my use. George

    Wheelwright's Magic

    Roy Underhill had a program on the Woodwrights Shop some 5-7 years ago (or longer) that he presented the entire process as done at Williamsburg. It detailed the entire process and was very interesting. George

    Drill Bit set

    Good find, as long as it is not like Abe Lincoln's antique axe. A man went to buy an antique axe claimed to be owned and used by Abe Lincoln. Upon questioning, the seller told him that the head had only been replaced twice and the handle had only been replaced 4 times but other than that it...

    Rigid planer

    Don't know about the Ridgid but I have had a 733 for over 15 years and it still runs like a champ. I like the idea of re-sharpenable blades. As with any machine, don't abuse it, keep it well maintained and clean and it will run forever. George
