Thanks k2, I'll look into getting that bit. I don't even know if this came with one. I'm glad to know I don't have to exchange the router. I'd li...
Don't look at the drawing. The b-board messed it up. Like you bevel the edge of a countertop, I need to to that to a 1x2. Thanks.
I guess "groove" was the wrong terminology. I need to cut a bevel (or even a 90 degree wedge) off the corner along one of the long edges. But bec...
I just purchased a 2HP plunge router (Craftsman) and wanted to know the best way to accomplish a task. I have a 1x2 piece of oak that I need to ...

I just built my own jamb for my basement window, so that I could trim it out in the old Craftsman style. It looks great, but I ran into a lumber p...

Yes, we are completely renovating our basement, and making cosmetic fixes on the rest of the house. We gutted the daylight basement last year and ...
Light colors on the ceiling lift it up to feel like a larger space. I would stay with warm tones, rather than cold ones. If it's a nursery, it mi...
On new drywall, how even should primer coats be if they're just going to get painted over anyway? I just primed the ceiling (new drywall) and ouch...
Thank you. I just realized that a happy side-effect to spraying the texture on is that the surface is now dust free from the air pressure. I'm ra...
We just finished texturing our new basement drywall. We used thinned joint compound and blew it on with a rented compressor/hopper thing for an or...
I don't know about plans, but I just bought a premade cap from my loal home improvement store. It looks easy enough to build yourself. 1x6 on the...

Thank you for the tips. Spraying seems less labor intensive as we plan to do it all ourselves anyway. One last question though. How do you go ab...
