Oh and when I bring the infeed table up, the back (far right if I'm looking at it) is lower. But I can't move those little rocker knobs anymore to bring it any higher. I've turned them so much I've go...

If I go the wood dowel route.... There's no chance this thing would be at risk of fire, is there? All those wires running through it

Oooo, that is dirt cheap too. If I can show you the back of the current one, would that give you a better idea if it would work?

You all talk like your made of money. Anyone want to send me "only" $30? The dowel thing is a neat idea but there is a light bulb in there. Guess I'll spend the money that I have lying around. /...

Do any of you have shop dogs? Mine follows me around like he's my shadow. I've been wondering though if the noise from the machinery would be harmful or heaven forbid, painful to their ears. Anyone t...

Thank you everyone for replying back to me. I'll go ahead and make the boxes at least 5/8" as suggested. And I'll screw the front face on. I could see trying to glue them on would be a big hassle fro...

Yes sorry, 5/8 is correct. And yes to 12" vertical. Wife wants to be able to stack pots and pans in the drawer. The entire island is mahogany with the interior drawers being poplar. And I was going to...

I'm no expert and will be doing dovetails for only the second time ever. The drawer opening is pretty large, little over 12" horizontal. I was going to make the drawer boxes 7" tall. Can I glue a fals...
