With a large quantity of random-sized doors lying in wait,
the search is on for a finishing rack design that will
allow the doors to spin, then pivot, then be rolled out
to the drying area.

This shop is facing a desperate situation: with a chipping
problem in freshly finished cabinet doors, profits are down.
The strange part is that no changes had been made in
finishing schedule.

An eccentric client, who prefers to take her supper seated
on the floor, has commissioned a dinner table at coffee
table height. This table, however, must accommodate others...
so the legs need to extend to standard dining table height.
Design ideas are passed around at:

An expensive speaker set on top of a high-end piece of oak
furniture... At first glance, this scene doesn't present any
problems - until it's revealed that the speaker is not only 
stuck, but completely adhered to the tabletop.

the sales of your fine furniture... But does selling through
galleries really make sense for you?

How many of you size the width of your stock with a
planer? One woodworker is searching out the most efficient
method of doing this, and welcomes advice on special jigs
and techniques for edging.

When the estimate for replacing the custom-sized filters
in a dust collector comes back at $8400, this woodshop
manager wonders if he can retrofit the system for less.
He's looking for help in working out the kinks in his
new design, which would use canister-type filters.

When she starts spraying the first 5' x 9' conference
table in this job, this finisher has trouble laying down
an even, wet coat on a surface that is too large to cover
all at once. Is it her technique - or her finish - that
must be modified?
