    Re: stuck on a detail

    With that being said Loren, I would go Kent's route. Sometimes making things right just isn't worth fighting for if it means doing demo on what your father just did. I would feel a bit sick it I was...

    Re: stuck on a detail

    I would get out the framing tools and do some re-frame work. There isn't a right way to make that look fluid. I would demo the left closet door, reframe to make the opening accept an appropriate...
  4. Re: Younger "carpenter" looking for career advice!

    There is supposed to be only one arsonist. And he has set ablaze more than 70 derelicts since October. It's insane how he is still not caught.
  5. Re: Younger "carpenter" looking for career advice!

    I would not move to Maryland, the Eastern Shore at least. Laborer rate is $8-10/hr, Apprentice $10-14, Carpenter $15-18.00 tops, Foreman $18-20.00/hr. Everyone seems to be switching to sub hourly...

    Re: Dws780

    Thanks Kent. I appreciate your input as always.

    And also the new GMC 2500HD is working quite well. It pulls my new 7x16 enclosed trailer like it isn't even there. I found a nice truck cap for it...

    Dws780

    My DW718 chopslide has died this week and the cost of repairs is just shy of a CPO DeWalt Refurb. Does anyone like the new slider better than the 718 slide? I have read mixed reviews online. I want...

    Re: Cheap man's Router Table

    That individual technique on the home-built TS makes me cringe with fears of him losing appendages just to save a few British Pounds. Very very unsafe.
  10. Re: Trimming Vinyl Windows - Pre-assemble everything?

    I second using 18ga staples. They do offer a better grip on the casings as they are transported through the house. Especially larger fabbed window assemblies.

    Sounds like you have a excellent plan...

  12. Re: Trimming Vinyl Windows - Pre-assemble everything?

    I've done this many many times, to many to count. The assembly table idea is key. If you have a helper utilize him while you're cut man. Using this system in a production approach can gain you hours...
