    What is the best wood to make a indoor barn door for my bathroom entrance?

    (Listening from Cincinnati, Ohio) I am also new to wood working and have been wondering if you have any recommendations on a solid dovetail saw under $50?

    I'm thinking of getting a drum sander. What is your opinion of the Super Max 25-50 sander

    For the person who inquired about a finish for a "tap dance" floor: Maybe he should check with a bowling alley as their lanes take a lot of abuse.


    Do you have any hints or tips on using Lock Miter router bits across the end grain of wood? I have tired and with the grain on the edge or face is ok but across the end grain is not working out.
