  2. put some wax on the surface at the edge of the board. When the glue dries – it will fall right off with the chisel. Then sand.

  3. I have only started to use a biscuit joiner, and so far not having the same results that I just saw in your video. For example when you put in the biscuits, it was very tight fit where you needed to use a mallet to place them. I have used mine 3 times so far, and every time, the biscuits basically 'fall' into the hole that was drilled, and is not a tight fit. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I am pretty sure I have the right depth set for the size 20 biscuits I am using. Any suggestions? Thank you for the video.

  8. Kind of funny that you used Sapele, I went my hardwood supplier this last week and bought some for a customer. I was going to use mahogany but it wasn't very good quality and I asked the employee what would he use instead. It sanded beautifully and finished the same. It was also quartersawn.

  9. What grit do you go to with the belt sander with the grain or did you stay with 80 since you started with 80 with the orbital sander?

  11. Great job! What would you do for a long section of counter, though, say 15 feet long? Would you stagger joints or find some other method?

  14. I have already built two Boats. Both were a great success and the building was very straight forward. I have recommended your plans for a long time now [Check Details Here==>https://t.co/bqkyWnfKRC ] . I look forward to building Eight Boat soon. Thanks.

  15. Hi Jon, do you have any recommendations for deciding which way the annular rings should be organized on a wide table top? Should they alternate rings up versus rings down, or should they all face up or all down? I'm about to make a 48" x 72" table top and wonder about this? Thanks, John Treble

  22. And, I didn't know, I thought you had to apply some pressure on the belt sander in order for it to remove a lot material faster.

  25. Hey Mr Peters I have a question. A guy I work with wants me to make him a bar top, but doesn't want to spend a ton of money. Is there a species that you would recommend that wouldn't break the bank? He is looking at 8'x4' and I just don't want to use pine or fir. Thank you much!
