    Epoxy Green or Make'em Wait

    Hey Everyone, I recently joined NCWW and here goes my first post. Actually it's my first on here or on any forum. Haha hope I did it right! I have a friend who had a local sawmill cut him a live edge handrail out of sweet gum. It is 3" thick and 20' +/- long and roughly 10" wide. We plan...

    Door question

    So I have a door question for you GC types out there - but you have to suffer through some backstory first :gar-Bi. First I realize that code in NC and VA may be different, and may be different from locality to locality, but this is more of a feasibility question... LOML wants to remodel the...

    Fein Multimaster question

    Could someone share feedback on the Fein MM 6-38-06-183-01-3 profile sanding kit? I am removing stains to my home doors with raised panel (N=10:BangHead:) and I am considering alternative to my current tool, a Skill octo sander. It is quite effective but the main problem I am experiencing is...

    Donation question

    I have some old VHS turning tapes that I no longer watch. I was thinking to put them on the Classified with a notation that the cost would be a donation that would go to NCWoodworker. On your Donation to NCWW, you say all donations have to be anonymous. Is there any way I can get these tapes...

    Humidor question

    I'm planning on making a humidor. I have some old growth pine that I got from Anchor Hardwoods (recovered from the Cape Fear river) that has some really interesting it would be cool to make something from ~100 yr old wood. Would this work for the case if I line the interior with...

    Grain filler question

    Does this stuff have an expiration date, or does it ever 'go bad'. I have a can that has been sitting around for about 15 years and wondering if it is OK to use. Or just get off my cheap rear end and buy another can. Thanks.

    Question about recalls

    Simply put. How long are tool recalls eligible for repair or replacement? My porter cable 890 router lost performance (doesn't attain full speed and torque) so I replaced the brushes because they were chipped and the commuters looked good. Needless to say that didn't fix the problem...

    Water heater leak question

    My water heater likes to start dripping out of the relief valve at the top side of the unit. If I put a bowl under it and pull the lever a bit and re-close it it stops dripping (the water is hot). So what is broke and what do I need to do to fix it. The old heater had a pipe attached to that...

    I am putting the finishing touches on a dining table for a friend. She wants a semi gloss finish. I have used a 3-2-1 mixture of mineral spirits, semi gloss polyeurathane and boiled linseed oil.

    Have a finishing question

    I am in the long and slow process of finishing my "man cave". I have been working on the trim and molding, and it is, for the most part, stained. I have been spraying Target Coatings Emtech EM6000 Water Based Lacquer with good results. My question is, on the door threshold, I don't think the...

    To spray, or not to spray...that is the question. (one of many!)

    Again...we delve into finishing. I hate to beat several dead horses about this...but the choices of finish and the application methods available, provide roughly 128,000 (through repeatable permutations) options for finishing...and I am very confused, especially when it comes to spraying. I...

    Plumbing Question

    Due to some poor planning on my part I have to redo the air piping in my shop which includes an auxiliary air tank. The easiest way to do things would be to include a ground seat union in the 1/2" steel pipe line. I have used these unions before with natural gas and water but never with the...
