    I bought a reel from Costco years ago, mounted it on the ceiling and it's worked fine. Rubber hose, however.

    Be careful with cross grain mortise and tenon. The end grain does not glue well, even to long grain. You'd do better to make two mortise and tenons in the piece and go with the grain. You want...

    On many blades (the separation piece between drawers), only the front couple of inches is a sliding dovetail. The rest is a regular dado. [Note: The dado has to be the thinner, as thin as the...

    Never heard of it, but that probably doesn't mean much. Do you have a link that discusses it?

    Note that he said he had a black, a red, a white and a ground (post #4). He also said the red went to one breaker and the black to the other. With that configuration, he either has one 240 V...

    There are plenty of situations where a cove is needed but it's not molding. I've built a swing where I wanted a piece to have a cove shape (where the seat and back met). There was no way to do that...

    I assume you mean two 20 amp breakers with the toggles tied together. If so, you probably have two 120V 20 amp circuits with a shared neutral.

    And the wire is probably sized to that 20 amps,...

    I bought one of the "quiet" ones from Home Depot (I think it's a Ridgid). They have a label on each vacuum that tells you how noisy it is. Pick the quiet one. I'm sure the Festool, Fein or Bosch is...

    Good start. For cutting the groove, do your dovetails first, then assemble the four sides of the drawer, use tape to hold the joints together if you need to. Then set up a slot cutter bit on your...

    Even if you take that position, the return is only being made to those who install solar.

    But it ignores the reality of what will happen to the system and to those who don't install solar -...

    Absolutely true. I had a power company executive tell me once that he'd buy all the power he could get during a power emergency at "retail" rates. That's the big argument for net billing of solar. ...

    Yes, I have that also. There's a basic amount, as you and I see, but the bulk of the distribution charge is based on your use of electricity - which was reasonable before solar. Your share of the...

    Net energy metering is being required as a way to encourage people to install solar. But it really isn't fair. Those of us who have solar provide electricity to the power company during the periods...

    I have the Harbor Freight version of the MultiMaster and it does everything I need it to do. I don't use it very often but when you need it, it's a nice tool to have.

    Looks like cherry to me. If it's really old, the veneer will be thicker than modern veneer. You can find thick veneer but it's not as common.

    Also, if it's cherry, it will have changed color...
