    I'm making a pair of entry doors for a church to replace weathered and cracking existing (pic attached). 92" x 36" x 2 1/4" each. Frame and panel. Planning to use QSWO. I'm thinking I should laminate as opposed to looking for 10/4 QSWO because of availability. Would use an epoxy like Smiths...

    Hey, This is coming from a first timer really, trying to put together a little coffee table. Buying a single piece of solid wood is a little too expensive so I thought I may go by the local mill and pick up some off cuts and laminate them together, also it's the aesthetic I'm going for. First...

    Hi, I am considering buying my first router. I like the idea of using a laminate trimmer with a plunge base as a router. A small and light router. I know that I do get less wattage, but does it really matter if I am only going to use it for my DIY projects? I am also a beginner when it comes to...

    Hi, I'm laying laminate for the first time and I'm having trouble. I'm trying to apply laminate to a 4x8' sheet of cheap plywood. We dusted off each surface, spread out a quart of contact cement total, and waited 20 min. The cement felt just slightly tacky, just enough to even notice, so we...

    Hi, I am planning to build a workbench in my garage. I plan to use a 3' x 8' plywood top, and six legs. My question is about the legs. Am I better off using 4x4's, or laminating two 2x4's together? Which is stronger? If laminate, any suggestions for glue, and what type of screws would work...

    Hi All, first post on this forum for me... I have a couple of vintage chairs with wooden laminated seatings, the problem is that some of them have a badly cracked in, I think, such a way that glue-ing them even with the most modern and powerful glue is not strong enough because there is...
