    I am building a bench top router table that folds away for storage. What type of router would you recommend for the build; a plunge router or fixed based router?

    • Customer Service

      I recommend using a fixed base router for a router table. A plunge base router is difficult to control for micro-adjustments.

    George, I know this is not anything to do with but, what do you think is the best screen color silver or charcoal?

    • Customer Service

      Hello Bill!

      We’re not quite sure what your question is asking. Would you be able to clarify?

      Thank you!

    What’s the best option for routing large areas? Small bit for edging then go for it with large bit or just use large bit?

    • Customer Service

      I’d suggest using a small bit for edging, and a large bit for bulk removal.

    Working with American Chestnut circa 1890, it seems to want to warp if I plane it thinner than 3/4 inch or so. Does Chestnut hold a lot of tension?

    Can you explain the difference between a low angle hand-plane and one that is not?

    Just finished a desk / hutch from red oak. Used an oil based stain then wipe on poly. Had an issue with white spots appearing after first coat of poly. What would be the reason for this? Was able to correct it by sanding them out but why would those spots form?

    Can the new woodturning carbide chip chisels replace the traditional chisels? Or are the traditional chisels still needed?

    How would you make a desk to use to put on top of handlebars when indoor cycling?

  10. Dwayne

    Watching from Indiana, I have low vision and some time it is very hard to make things come out the same. Any ideas or suggestions for measuring and cutting items?

    Is buntings a good wood to use for cutting boards? What other wood would it go with?
