    The Butler's Desk - Build Thread

    Thread Starter: Brian Holcombe

    Recommendation for new dovetail saw?

    Thread Starter: Pat Barry

I also have another even larger backsaw and a Zona universal razor saw. I'd like something easier to control...

    Dumb Question re: weight

    Thread Starter: Adam Less

    I have a 6040 Weike laser arriving in a couple of days. Because I have a door too small to bring the laser through, I have to remove a 4x6 window and bring the laser through that. With that said, the window is 33" off the ground and my intention is to uncrate the laser in the bed of my pick up...
