=> Featured Project

Mix together an unusual design, stained wormy maple, and a
dash of elm, and you've got an elaborate French country
kitchen... Over the top? Some think so. Just what the
customer ordered? Absolutely. See for yourself:

=> Hot Threads

Cope and stick Vs biscuits... This thread debates which is
stronger, and just how much strength is overkill in cabinet

How do you move a stubborn elephant? Probably much the
same way you move a CNC machine. Here are a few ideas for
getting a massive piece of machinery from one side of the
shop to the other.

This thread requests some creative ideas on how to get
into the groove... With a dark stain, that is.

Doc deems a sharp-looking solar kiln, right here at the

(Tenon End Cutter in action)

The designer of this blade system needed to cut a lot of
different sized tenons quickly and accurately. He now
uses the Tenon End Cutter - easy, versatile, and
inexpensive - in his own shop almost every day. Watch a 
video of the Tenon End Cutter in action at:

=> Knowledge Base Highlights

Contemporary concerns cloud the design of these antique
reproduction display cases. Large glass doors need to
look the part, but must be light enough to prevent sag
and strong enough to survive transport.

Entertainment factors high on the priority list for many
new homeowners these days. So when building home theaters
for big bucks, why not cash in on the construction of
acoustic panels, as well?

Your customer picked the acorn-shaped door pulls, but now
her husband will have nothing less than the peanut-shaped
pulls (far superior, he insists)... Change-orders: what a
pain. Might as well charge for 'em.

This small shop is considering a little machinery
switch-a-roo. Can a cabinet saw and panel saw be
eliminated in favor of a sliding panel saw?

The search for a smooth-machining Honduran mahogany
substitute leads to a discussion of when a mahogany is
not *really* a mahogany at all. The Wood Doc clears up
this confusing industry topic:

Who is that bedraggled looking fellow, the one with
unkempt hair and bleary eyes? He's the sleep-deprived
owner of a one-man shop, of course, and he hasn't left
his workplace for twelve hours... for the sixth day in 
a row. Is there no relief to this poor man's plight?
