    I had the same experience - drilled right through the crown and filled it with amalgam. Porcelain crowns are metal with a thin coating of porcelain. I don't see any reason it should shatter but ask...

    I've veneered to solid wood without problems. An issue with solid wood as a substrate is that the solid wood expands and contracts. If you look at really old veneered furniture you may see splits...

    Why don't you put your location on your profile. Someone who lives close to you may be willing to lend you a spokeshave (or two). That would give you a chance to try one before you buy one. I have...

    Case hardening, technically, is when you have a piece of iron or steel of low carbon content - too low to be able to harden - and you infuse carbon into the surface of the metal so that the surface...

    The Lie Nielsen Boggs spokeshave is excellent. I have a bunch of spokeshaves of all types and the LN is the one I usually go for. But it's for fine trimming. If you want to hog off wood, you need...

    If you're talking about rockers for a rocking chair, I laminate bend mine on a form. Never had a problem with flat spots.

    I have a Starrett 6" fractional dial caliper. (Here's a link to Amazon) I've had it for a bunch of years and it works great. I'm sure the lower cost ones work well, also.

    I like a fractional...

    I have a friend who's close to 80 and he just quit playing. He had been playing on a "senior" team - I think that's what it was called - so all the other players were close to the same age. But I...

    You can be sure they don't go into the landfill unless they're shredded.

    Someone may have posted this, but when you order your chicks, make sure you specify "sexed", otherwise you'll get mixed. The hatchery has the ability to check the sex of the baby chicks and give you...

    I have no direct knowledge, but I suspect that when Amazon does a rebate as you describe, they just charge it against the vendor's account. If the vendor objected, Amazon would just tell them to...

    That reminds me of a sign in a bar in New Orleans (where I grew up).

    It said:

    Requests $5.00
    Saints $10.00

    Now this was lots of years ago, when $5 or $10 was a lot of money. The band was...

    People may or may not react to that low a level. The problem is liability. If you were a company, wouldn't you prefer to put the warning on your food just in case someone had a reaction? It would...

    Most people treat paper backed veneer just like Formica and use contact cement. Roll it with a J-roller, just like Formica. Paper backed veneer is intended for millwork applications.

    I hope you realize that BST is a growth hormone (bovine somatotrophin)for cattle and has nothing to do with GMO. Dairy cows that are treated with BST are not genetically modified, the milk is not...

    Yep, I've used epoxy. For some veneers, it's the only reasonable solution. It's just a whole lot more expensive.

    That can be true, Chris. But a problem with some veneer is that it curls when it absorbs moisture. When you put your glue on, you normally only put it on the substrate (to keep moisture away from...
