    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

Well, not so much "plans" as pictures of the completed unit, but it should be obvious how to recreate something similar. Due to poor planning on my part and a lack of any real sleep, I made one...

    Very Super Cool Table Saw Fence...

    Thread Starter: Derek Arita

    Wood Movement Question

    Will screwing this brace to the lid do anything to prevent the lid from cupping?

    The lid is 20" wide and the brace is 3/4" x 1".
