    You want to get into solo backpacking but want to eat steak and sausage and eggs? That sounds pretty posh for backpacking, but a nice treat! I think it would be a lot easier to buy a small cooler...

    Just an update on my project.

    I'm finally done (sans some nail holes in the trim) and my wife and I are very happy with it. We had a bit of a delay (our son came 3 1/2 weeks early) but I got it...

    Do a Google image search for "performax 16-32 shop made base" and I think you'll get all you need.

    You need to address the problem at the source - the doors. Either the installation, the doors themselves, or the materials used.

    I don't have any experience with any if the ones you listed except Evapo-rust, but I love the stuff. Personally I wouldn't bother trying anything else since it works so good.

    Mike,
    You can keep running a board through a planer, taking say 1/16" off each pass, until it's the thickness you want. But you need to start with a flat (jointed) references face or you're going to...

    A DW735 for $260 is a steal! Nice work!

    Buying new though, a dw734 hands down is the best IMO. I had one for years and it was great. Blades last quite a while and are reversible.

    I would paint them without question. I was astounded by the amount of houses we looked at, when we bought three years ago, that we're last remodeled in the mid 80's early 90's. They are a huge turn...

    I don't think mobility should be a concern. Any machine can be put on a mobile base. My 1000# Powermatic BS is on a mobile base for instance.

    Mike,

    I think that's where a 2x8 would go, but a 2x8 is 7 1/4" wide I think.

    You're just talking foam right? I'd put them on their side (think side/long grain if visualizing hardwood) stack...

    Very cool! New link worked.

    It would be cool to see a comparison of different blades to see how they cut.

    The variation of thickness will be the maximum cutting depth of your planer I think. For example, a stationary 15" planer can probably hog off around 1/4" in one pass, and a lunchbox maybe 1/8".

    I'm not following what you're trying to do. Could you explain your design more or include a picture?

    Normally aprons dead end at the legs so there's no mothering of them.
