    So I bought a house and it has an outdoor bar that was left unfinished by the previous owner. I asked him about it and he said it has a few coats of polyurethane on it but that's it.

    I'm looking to upgrade the look of my bathroom vanity. Instead of replacing it completely I thought I'd just swap the panels. So instead of the plastic-like white, I'd like it to be a nice walnut wood. Basically simple flat panels, like the existing ones. Question is, how? (I'm not experienced...

    I am making a torsion box using 3/4" plywood and overlapping the boards by cutting slots using my dado blades. In most instances, everything works great. I have run into a problem where the blades will not cut through a few of the boards. They stop and spin against the wood. Anyone have an...

    Hi All, I'm curious if anyone has any feedback regarding what sort of unsupported span you could get from plywood (I'm ok, if you say to use good cabinet grade 11 or 13 ply), specifically if you laminate 2 or maybe even 3 sheets together. I'm specifically asking for a computer desk that I've...
