    I have an 8' dock section with two posts about 18" above the deck. I'd really like to make a simple table that extends over the marsh vs over the dock. The full support of the table would need to flow through those two posts. My simple idea would be bolt a couple 4x4s to the posts, then 45...

  3. Insulation
    Hi. In Toronto, ON and I'm finishing my attached double garage (20x20) in hopes of setting up a woodworking shop. It's not currently heated or cooled but I plan on using it year-round so heating is definitely coming and I may get a portable AC too in the future. Replaced the 2 garage doors with...

    I'm making a new console table for my entryway, and as I've done with past furniture projects, I am using cheap framing lumber. My plan was for the top of this table to be a 3' piece of 2x12, and instead of my usual staining, I decided to try Shou Sugi Ban, the Japanese technique for burning...

    I am working on some built-in cabinets and the veneer on my oak plywood countertop is cracking (see pic). Not sure why, but definitely not water or sun. It has been sitting in the room a month, so getting hit with the heat maybe did it? Either way, since I am pre-finish I am not sure how to...

    I really enjoy fixing things, but I'm no real expert at any one thing. "Jack of all trades and master of none." No matter the setting I'm in I like helping others by fixing things. I grew up on a farm and enjoyed farm life, which included lots of hard work, dealing with cattle, pigs...
  8. Painting
    Hello. I am working on my first real DIY project, making a simple bedframe. I have sanded my pine boards, but notice that there are some holes from the knots in the wood. Can I fill this with spackle or do I have to use something special? I am NOT staining the wood. Only painting. Thanks for...

    We all need to get the job done as quickly as possible but when dealing with tools as dangerous as a router cutter spinning at up to 52,000 RPM you cannot risk cutting corners. I can count on the three fingers I have left the times I've got away with cutting corners. Basic safety Hints...

    I get a call about every 7-18 months from a client or friend of a client wondering what to do with their Husbands shop tools when they pass away. This is always a sad call and one I have struggled with to answer in the past. Our shop programs in our schools are disappearing. I would think that...
