hi from somerset wi. my question is did you apply a finish to your new workbench
I made an oak tabletop several years ago. It has breadboard ends. due to changes in humidity they protrude past the sides of the table in the summer. Can I trim them and re-rout the profiled edges and epect them to remain flush, or will they continue to expand and contract forever?
Thanks for answering my jointer question! I’m in Searcy, Arkansas!
Hi George, I’m watching from Chicago. Love your stuff! My workbench is made of two laminated 46-or-soX24 inch quarters of laminated 3/4 plywood. I laminated them with glue and screws and sanded the edges. I’d like to cut some dog holes and t tracks into this bench, is there a recommended practice for going about this. The top is screwed to the frame by the way. Thanks!

Gary from the Philippines ( ex pat ) I work with slabs mostly and have 2 tables on my list. When I get to the leg attachments 1 is a bit over 4 feet long the other is 9 feet about, I want to router in the legs from left to right but they will be 3 panels wide. Will it depend on grain direction? It is very hot and humid here. Mahagony for the most part is my wood.

We used steel wool when finishing in shop class many moons ago. I’ve seen several finishing videos & never seen you use or suggest it. Is it no longer considered a good idea?
Answered at 15:15
Hi George. I have been watching you build some project videos recently, and I’m seeing you use what appear to be drywall screws to join two pieces of wood. Am I correct in what I think I’m seeing? I’ve always heard they’re the wrong thread and also not strong enough for woodworking. Comments?
