Cool repair trick . . . .

This is a cool way to repair a crack in a board you really want to salvage.

Repair a check.

The tip is such a simple one, but I wouldn't have thought about it. Thanks

This could be the start of something good. I'm glad someone thought of it. And it didn't take long to get it started.

Keep up the good work guys.

That was a very informative video. It made me think of the way I have made laminate seams by running a router bit through both pieces.

If the cutting tool veers of in one direction it cuts both pieces as it is veering off.

I guess it's like a jig saw puzzle.

This is a version of an old trick called curfing in. It was used to get miters tight without getting the pieces cut perfectly the first time.
I belive that Its shown in part two of the joiners tool chest video
Check it out...

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo
