    This is, when ever I try and turn anything over 10" tall (10" away from the chuck) it starts to chatter, and makes it hard to turn :confused_ So I thought a simple project, running a couple of roller blade wheels up against it might help, but the project just kept getting more invloved :widea...

    The Dark Side was strong in Richmond this weekend

    Gluing after finishing - How strong is it?

    I'm making this big (10'W x 9'H) wall cabinet out of esentially 14 different sized boxes made out of veneered 3/4" plywood. They will have 1/4" veneered plywood backs. The whole thing will then get a face frame put on it. My question has to do with completely finishing the individual panels...
