"One suggestion. If the shelf is above eye level put the screws thru the top so you don't see them. Below eye level put them on the bottom side. This way you don't have to plug them & they are more easily removed in the future."

Holes for shelf

I am putting some bead board about 2/3 up the wall and want to top it with a 1x4 shelf. The wall are just about 5 foot long in an L. They will have support on the ends but could I put a couple of pocket holes in the center to use to be able to screw into the wall studs? Anything I am missing? Thanks

Outfeed/workbench help

Right now my outfeed table is a metal frame with a mdf formica 4x7 top. I would really like to take advantage of the wasted space underneath. I was going to build some cabinets with casters and do away with the metal frame. It will probably be mostly drawers for power tools, if I use 3/4 mdf do I put pocket holes on both sides. How many casters should I use on a 4x7 base?  Thanks Michael See More

"Cherry is probably the way I'd go. It is relatively inexpensive compared to teak, mahogany or walnut.  It is harder than most pines and firs and is more dimensionally stable."

"Yes, you can most definitely get a strong joint in MDF using Kreg Joinery. Just be sure to use coarse-thread Kreg Screws. They're recommended for use with softwoods like cedar, pine, fir, etc.—as well as for sheet goods such as plywood…"

"Maybe should have put the pocket holes under the board, then water won't collect in them."

"I don't have a planer, is the poplar from a big box store going to be straight enough to make doors and face frame. I do have a jointer that I have not setup. Or should I invest in a planner now?"
