    When you make drawers, you do your joinery (maybe dovetails) then assemble the box. Use tape to hold it together if you need to. Then set up a slot cutter bit in your router table with the height...

    In my opinion, if you want to fuse a tool that plugs into an outlet you should do that between the plug and the tool. You should not try to fuse a plug in tool with the panel breaker.

    I don't know what Charles Neil's blotch control is but I know that nothing much stops cherry from darkening with age and light exposure. I've had cherry veneer in a box with some veneer tape on...

    I'd change that to "Tenons on the table saw and mortises drilled out on the drill press, then cleaned up with a chisel."

    We travel with a dog, also, and have not found it difficult to find places that will allow dogs. There's usually an added charge for the dog but I'm okay with that.

    Some hotels have limits on the...

    If by "several feet" you mean 5 or 6 feet, then, no, you probably won't notice any difference. You'd have to be really "on the edge" for 5 or 6 feet to make any difference.

    I think the old standard was RG-59. I've heard that RG-6 is better. But I did not work in the cable modem area (I worked in dial up modem area).

    I think it's a 75 Ohm cable.

    I looked at a teardrop trailer a while back. You can build them yourself on a trailer bed. To me, the problem is that you really live outside with that trailer. The cooking space is at the back of...

    Yes, but you can take the cash to the bank immediately. If the bank accepts the cash (and they will check it) you're home free. The bank can't go back and find where a specific $100 bill came from...

    Rather than put a lot of time into that blade, I'd buy a modern blade. A modern blade will be flat and will be thicker than the old Stanley blades. In my opinion, the greatest improvement you can...

    I agree with Michelle but I use a plastic head hammer. I found that rubber hammers often left black marks on the wood.

    I suppose they could but I've never had any problems with using them. I remove the cauls before the glue sets and since I use PVA, I scrape and wash the excess glue off.

    Plus, you're probably...

    If looks are not a problem, put screws in from the outside in countersunk holes and then plug the holes. You can think of the screws as metal dowels.
