    Best way to remove a convex warp from a maple dresser top that's already been removed from the unit?

  2. Kenny

    I've been asked to build a wooden sign for a business. It would need to be about 4' to 4.5' in diameter and hang from a tall sign hanger. What is the best way to join boards that will be in the weather? Is marine plywood an option? I've never been asked to do a project like this before, so any help would be appreciated.

  3. LINDA

    What paint is best to use on MDF?

  4. Wayne Mills

    Which spiral router bit is more useful, in general--upcut or downcut?

  5. Bob Anderson

    I've been using router bits with bearings for quite awhile. But I'm not really familiar with those bushings. What are they and how do they work? Thanks

  6. Harold Golden

    How can I flatten a cupped board?

  7. Bill

    I build outdoor furniture with 2x4 pine lumber. In order to cut down on sanding I am thinking of buying a hand planer. Are they that useful?

  8. Dave

    Will freezing wood eliminate beetles or other pests in fresh cut slabs? Also, if I use Bora Care on wood, can I still use mineral oil and expect that the wood will be “food safe?”

  9. Dave

    What’s the best resin to use for beginners?

  10. Kim

    When do you wear a dust make when you work and what kind do you use?
