    I'm not suggesting that every mid-century home needs to be preserved in it's original form. What I am saying is that they should be updated without ignoring what they actually are, they're 'modern'...

    FWIW, Crown molding is going to look out of place in a mid-century ranch house. I would avoid doing any heavy crown or any crown for that matter. If you really need a molding for something, make up...

    Sam's good people, really helped me out with my order and questions after the sale (that last part is most important!).

    This is 18.5" wide white oak and came off my minimax with a dulling CT...

    I think it would be advisable to go over with a metal detector before you saw it, if you are planning to saw it up.

    My biggest complaint with my current bench is that I made it too short (6'). When I build another (provided some spare time at some future unknown point) it will be 8' long and 22" wide.

    You...

    3/4" is huge, I agree with those who say to remove or repair the soffit. There is no molding that is going to make that appear correct.

    Not all soffits are removable. I'm building kitchen...

    Malcolm brought up cedar/cypress in your other version of this thread. I think that is the most likely wood. It's certainly finer than walnut, very tightly grained and darkens up considerably over...

    Pat,

    A functioning chip breaker is working the chip back against itself and using the blade as its backdrop to do this. The effect is more wear. When I need the chip breaker action of course...

    Pat, I don't see any comments that I would disagree with. I agree with Patrick, Stan, Warren, and Robert. The surface is not improved unless there is a risk of tearout. If I can plane well without...

    Yes and No, in my experience. There are many work horse type planes, though highly refined, that are well over $500. So it's not so easy to simply say that over a certain price threshold you are...

    Not so much, it's quite similar but slightly lighter (in color) and a little easier still to work.

    Same experience and I would tend to think if these are original then they were able to source fantastic European walnut, they had not run out of walnut yet at that point. IIRC the big transition...

    I have ripped the full depth of cut with the 55 Festool. Trick is to use the correct blade, the standard blade is to fine for heavy ripping. Same reason that you don't resaw with a 14 tpi bandsaw...

    I believe it is very hard to stand a board on end and resaw it. The saw dust becomes long fibers and does not cut well. I tried this briefly on a chair seat becuase it was shorter, then returned to...

    Seal the end grain. I use anchor seal on green wood and it works beautifully. I think it is asking for trouble to just let it crack.
