    I heard you talk about glue a minute ago. Is there anything wrong with using Titebond III for everything to avoid buying three different glues?

  2. Matt Stanley

    What brand of router bits would you recommend for a beginner?

  3. missgoalie

    Are you coming to the Toronto woodworking show on Feb 7 to 9?!

  4. GARY

    FYI In South Africa the Baobab trees are 2000 years old

  5. MMOHAR2

    I'm fixing to buy a new dust collector and looking at the 2 HP PFlux2 with HEPA filter, is this a good choice for both brand and size? I am a hobby woodworker for over 30 years and spend a lot of time in the shop

  6. Jim Wilson

    A very cool and special project for your sister!

  7. Scott Owens

    Hiw would I locate a professional company to survey my shop and advise on a total dust collection system?
