I have used mesquite on mostly smaller projects as it's hard to find clear blanks without checks and cracks unless you are willing to fill them with epoxy. It is beautiful wood and machines well. A...

Sounds like a really nice system. Mine will also control blast gates but I just have a 2 car garage workshop and don't do anything commercial. Time isn't a factor for me so I just disconnect the DC...

House Sign

Well, I finally finished it. The wood is Cherry and the final size is 15" by 24" by .875" thick. Not the best choice of wood for an outdoor sign but it was on sale. I figured several coats of shellac...
