    Thanks, Aaron. I tried exactly that for a small project (PS’s Hanging Wall shelf) and was delighted with how it is turning out.

    Agree with the perpendicular comments. I laminated 2×4’s together for my legs and they work perfectly well.

    me too. I even laminated some cedar together for PS’s cedar chest. In the future, I think I would buy some clear straight spruce for those, but my work bench has 2×4’s laminated together. It is solid as you could like.

    I had much the same experience with dimensioning rough saw lumber, so I bought a 13″ wide porter cable thickness planer and a 6″ jointer. I’ve dimesioned well dried (air) cedar, cherry and spalted maple. It has helped me to enjoy the actual ‘making’ part of the process. They are clearly only suitable as hobby tools, but seem quite good for that. Before that, I had a friend with a nice shop help me get the material to size, square, etc. Both tools came square out of the box.

    I use my apple TV and my ipad,using the mirroring function. Not perfect but quite good. The remote allows me to fast forward/pause/back up. I download the videos onto my desktop then put them on the ipad. I think you could do the same on an iphone.
    But I have not tried to cut out the step with the desktop, which may be the root of your questions.
    Best of luck.

    I am a novice on a tight tool budget, so this saw is quite a fine. I’ve made 7 dovetails so far. I’m not actually happy with them yet, but I know it is a matter of learning technique!ie I’m not wasting time blaming my tools. It certainly gave me better success on 1/4 that 3/4.

    Eclipse vice is a great tool, better than a third Hans as it holds tighter and I can cut toward it. I was amazed at how much it helps

    Thank you. The tip on the weight was very helpful. I’ll stack it with stickers and let it acclimate in my garage. @ deanbecker, nice try!

    Can I make the Craftsman Style Bookends without a plough plane? I followed Paul’s teaching on using a saw to make a long central recess in making a cutting board with bread-board ends, so it works in some situations. I don’t have the coin to add a plough plane to my tool chest (yet!). BTW, David B, those book ends look great!
