=> Hot Threads

A mysterious panel manufacturing problem has reared its
ugly head once again. Why another batch of glue joint
failures, and why only in red oak?

When a seemingly reliable home-built sawmill starts
cutting bowed boards, mechanics come into question...
Is the mill or the blade at fault?

A cabinetmaker with a creative spark seeks to create a
face frame/frameless hybrid construction method. If you're
interested in the details of merging efficiency with 
tradition, join in:

Moldy, dusty and dirty - that's the look we're going for
at the Finishing Forum. Help this finisher develop a
glazing schedule that will produce consistent (and
well-worn) results.

=> WOODWEB Launches Shop Gallery

Professional woodworkers are encouraged to create a free
shop listing at this new area. Include a description of
your facilities and equipment, photos of your shop and
the products you manufacture, and even a photo of your
shop dog!

We hope to build a resource that will not only provide
insight to how the pros set up their shops, but will
also allow visitors to review Shop Gallery listings
based on what type of product the shop produces.

Are you considering storing some freshly cut, high quality
logs until you have time to saw them later? Think again.
 The Wood Doc warns about the dangers of letting those logs lie.

The advantage to having a finisher - rather than time -
age your furniture is that you can be picky and precise
in designing the end results. Here, the task is to create a 
conservative crackle.

The title says it all: "Finger Versus Tablesaw." Which do
you think won?

When a contractor failed to pay the large chunk of change
he owes, the stiffed shop owner did some research,
discovering that the deadbeat contractor has a habit of
not playing by the rules. Is there any way to make this guy pay?

A little background on buying wholesale and selling retail
may prove quite helpful in determining how much to mark up
your product for sale - and more importantly, for profit.

Living quarters in your shop: space saver, cost reducer,
time maximizer... or just plain dumb idea?
