    No surprise: it's a trade-off. How large would the all-in-one panel be? Veneering a large panel can be more difficult than veneering several small panels, depending on your equipment and experience....

    This is often normal. Some confusion comes from our sloppy use of language. Book-matching gives you mirrored growth rings, not grain.

    One of the many things I enjoy about Roy is his use of humor to skewer those of us (me!) who seem to 'need' a wide range of tools.

    I noticed as well that Frank had no trouble putting it to work.

    This is great on so many levels. I've copied the photos of the circle cutting mod.

    First I buy the books, then the tools, then I use them! But I do get around to using them.
    A couple guys in my WW club kidded me about that, but an old-timer told me "Don't listen to them. Buy the...

    An additional point I didn't see covered above (skimmed some of it): a crosscut saw actually cut two parallel kerfs which end up joining together and becoming one. That's why you'd want more teeth in...

    Great process.
    I love build threads.
    I really love build threads that start with a photo of the raw lumber.
    I'm over the moon for build threads that use an obscure tool I use as well (the 5ppi...

    The article topics are repetitive but not the nitty-gritty details within the articles.

    For me the books are well worth the $80, but then I spend freely for knowledge.

    If you haven't made a hollow & round pair, the source material for those will be a big help. DVD's by Todd Herli (simple) and Larry Williams (comprehensive) are common starting points.

    Highland Hardware used to have a nice one. 24" long and 1/4" wide and $9. They appear to be gone. (Sigh.)

    That is wonderful! I hope we get to see more.
    (It takes so much of my 'creativity' to design and build a piece, I have none left over for documenting the build.)

    Here in the US the home improvement stores sell Drywall Screen (NOT the Drywall Sandpaper). They are 3"x9", cheap, and come in grits 120, 150, and 220.
    For me they were a game-changer.

    That depends on two things: your part of the country and if you're buying to own or flip.

    Nicely done!
    Once you've cut a few, the next exercise is to make the mating piece.
    I'm aware of no plan for it, so it's also a design lesson.

    I've got a 5-1/4 set up with a 5" radius on the blade. I use it when a scrub seems like too much and a jack (8" radius) isn't fast enough.

    To amplify what a few people said, your piece list should note what each piece is for. Some pieces need show grain while leg pieces often work best with rift grain.
