  1. Agreed, assuming you have a local source for the wood. We bought a Boos island top from an online dealer in CT - must have been a second because it developed two splits in the grain, and no one responded. On the other hand, if you buy it from a big box, you can return anything that's defective. The special order people in kitchens should have that information if you can find an employee who cares. Multiple sizes available.
  2. I've been cleaning up an older Jet JJ6-CS jointer that I bought (and paid too much for.) New belt, new knife set, table and fence waxed. I had never installed new knives and was checking some sites. As is often the case, many YouTube videos urged me to buy some great tool. Then I found this one from FineWoodworking, and it included two of my favorite features - it's cheap and it seems to work. So, I'm sharing it here for anyone who might need it, while also looking for other helpful pointers that might help do the job better. https://www.finewoodworking.com/2005/10/25/jointer-knife-setting-jig Jim

    Good Clean Fun

    What model is this? We're overrun with squirrels, and they're pretty crafty. Or maybe just smarter than me!
  4. I've seen an articulating 12" compound MS. Bosch, IIRC, and probably pricey, but not sliding saves quite a bit of space.
  5. Welcome! Great people here, always helpful, never judgmental. But watch out, they'll be happy to help you spend your money.
  6. Around the perimeter is better. If you put them in the center, you'll be working in your own shadow. DAMHIKT!
  7. Nice system, well engineered, and yes, expensive. I did one of those last summer (not for me.) I've heard about some subjectivity with the code people.
  8. It appears that it's near an outside deck, judging from the cable railing system. If that's the case, it looks like a pine board, and it won't last. If it's cedar or similar, then forget what I said. Regardless, I can't see how you're thinking you want the trim to be cut. Jim
  9. John - Sorry to hear about your dog. 9 years old seems like she's getting cheated. We lost two at nine. I've always felt that they understand and accept it much sooner that we do. Still doesn't make it any easier. My head is full of projects, and I'm tempted to rush into them all. But we all know how that turns out! I started building a Murphy bed today. We have only two bedrooms and no place for SWMBO to set up sewing or tv room, etc. So the Murphy is a good solution and comfortable when we do have company. Compared to most of what I see here, it's hardly woodworking - following a cut sheet and some precision fitting. However, the options for finishing the exterior are unlimited.
  10. Another take on the non-miter craftsman look...
  11. Beautiful! I do some stained glass projects, but the detail pieces on the horse are extraordinary.
  12. Excellent advice. And if you want it to be mobile, I am really impressed with these from Amazon... A little pricey, but worth it IMO. The best part is when disengaged, the legs are sitting solidly on the floor rather than on the wheels. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DX7HL9G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Jim
  13. Looks beautiful - I especially like the grain match on the doors. Have to mention - every time I see this thread title, I'm thinking of "completing" the AYCE buffet for $9.95!
