Why do forster bits cut a slightly bigger hole than regular drill bits? Dowels fit sloppy loose when you bore the hole with a forster but they fit tight when you use a regular drill bit.
Yeah it was empty. Just there to represent the load. I was fully expecting my dog to knock it down before I could get a picture.PS: Obviously, I based my answer on a heavy load being in the bucket. In your photo's situation, it wouldn't matter. As it appears to be an empty bucket!
Last week I let my dog outta the shop at night to go pee.It's a funny clip.
Harbor Freight.Not all dowels are created equal. I would expect that the forstner bit is accurate unless it is a real cheapo.
My first question is resolved. I made these with a 3/4" dome shaped bit. There's no purpose for these items. I was just experimenting, learning. The shellac finishes are another experiment to see if plywood can be made pretty, and I guess I'm also going to see how shellac holds up to skin oil and light friction. Wifey likes to run her fingers back and forth through the router cuts like one of those soapstone blocks with the spoon shaped concavity you're supposed to rub with your thumb.Is it possible to put a roundover edge on plywood using a router, or will it tear it up?
Brand new, minus the plywood edge cuts in the pictures above.How dull is your bit?
Maybe I can just chuck up that bolt in the drill press and spin it while holding a rat tail file in it.The router bit wouldn't know the difference except if you route wood that is glued up like plywood very much it will quickly dull the bit. The glue line is very abrasive on even carbide tip bits.
