    Yes, for the fox wedging, bore the hole the size of the handle, stopping before you go all the way through. Use a gouge or similar to taper the hole so that it is bigger at the top. (Only taper it...

    I don't have any issue if this guy wants to use a Dremel for his work (though a Dremel is particularly awful to use even in the corded world), but his choice of using it in this particular venue...

    At the very least, bore and thread it deeper and screw a new handle in. But I wouldn't do it that way. My experience is that a screw-in handle on a mallet is a bad idea because an off-center hit...

    You can successfully make a plane out of pretty much any species of wood if you really want to (or are limited in choices). Wenge shouldn't have any wear issues and shouldn't split as long as you...

    A bench, tool box, saw bench, assembly table, and room to work in 100 sq ft? I really don't see that happening unless you are willing to stray a bit (at least temporarily) into that other 200 sq ft....

    I don't crank down on things with all my might, but I suppose I tend more toward the "tight" side of things than the "just snug" side. I'd rather have something...
