Hot Threads

A built-in subzero refrigerator has caused its installer much cursing and hair
pulling. Advice on making fine adjustments to a seemingly immovable object
is given here.

A system for installing wooden tray dividers is sought at the Cabinetmaking
Forum. Simple hardware solutions are being reviewed.

Production of strong, quality cabinet doors is under discussion: dowels,
nails, or just glue 'em and go?

The good news: there's lots of work rolling in. The bad news: the shop is a
disorganized mess. The thread that holds this shop together: bonus
incentives doled out to employees upon completion of a job.

    components supposedly stained with the same formula, and consider what
    techniques could be employed to fix the problem.

    Practical machinery and jig options for haunch cuts on beaded face frames are
    discussed here. An affordable, efficient system for the small shop is sought.

    Veneer pros discuss vacuum bag and other techniques for making veneer
    conform to a three-dimensional surface like the gauge panel of a Jaguar
    automobile dashboard. While some suggest the process is simple, others
    find that idea laughable...
