    Feedback on Dec 2019 white walnut. The question may have been about English Walnut vs American Black Walnut. Many years ago I head english walnut referred to as ‘white walnut’.

      I believe that it is quite good for the money. It’s not as precise as my more expensive “pinless” style moisture meter, but more important than precision accuracy is being able to monitor for when your material stabilizes. In other words, if it says 10% today, and it said 10% two months ago, and has been stored properly inside that entire time, it is probably safe to use. On the other hand, if it says 10% today and it said 11% last month, I’d give it another month to see if it has stabilized at 10%.

      If you are referring to joining boards together to form a table top, you don’t really have to use either of those mechanical aids. As long as you establish good square edges to form your joint, your glue alone will form a bond that is stronger than the wood itself.

    I have home made carts for most of my tools and have medium sized shop vacs under each tool. larger tools share a large shop vac while being used. and a dust mask.
