    If you really must have the boxes flushed to one another, there's no reason why you couldn't
    drive in a screw or two. Screws are removable if you put a little paraffin wax on the threads.

    I'm thinking along the same lines.
    I would guess that the last installers
    didn't tension them properly, and there's

    It came with three blades.
    The 'pointed' blade is really useful for stopped dadoes.

    This piece is like a perfect golf swing.

    It's a worthy practice to give a test run on the side that people won't see,
    to get a feel for how a given board behaves.

    I intend to be buried with it, so I can clean dadoes and fit tenons in the hereafter.

    Hand nailing means the roofer can't afford the current equipment. They charge more for this and there's no evidence that it makes for a better roof.

    Since the drive is toasted, this is an opportunity to check the door hinges without anything attached.

    I like this design, it has a lifted floor to get the dog up off the ground.
    That will make it tolerable in colder climates.

    Not for nothing, but have you vacuumed the interior of your PC in four years?

    Call an electrician.

    House fires are no joke.
    They always happen when there's no one
    home to call the Fire Department.

    You'll be able the transport MDF once, maybe twice.
    It's not an ideal material for this application.
