Re: Sanding smooth inlay

I'm getting closer now. One thing I havent learned well is the finishing steps. In this case its 2 or 3 coats of polyurethane, but im always wondering how much sanding between layers is required or if its necessary at all. Between each coat here-I inspected the surface for defects etc and sanded the...

Re: Crosscut Sled Sustained Accuracy

Seems like a replacement spacer for that rubber thing could minimize variance on that part. Maybe a piece of hardwood or something? I use the rubber stop as a first approximation-but then move the table a bit back and forth to align with ZCI. Final test is hand rotating the blade to listen for rubbi...
