where are you all buying your Robertson / Sq Drive screws?

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I've shopped McFeelys for two decades but I think my sense of allegiance is wavering. Moreso since their buyout a few years ago.

I'm an infrequent buyer, several boxes of 'hundred' #6, #8 over the course of two years.
I've got $60 of resupply in my McFeelys cart and thought I'd ask if anyone has a favorite supplier?

thanks!

Drawer Lock Bit - Drawer Stock Sizing Question

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I just bought the Freud Drawer Lock bit. It isFreud 99-240: 2" (Dia.) Drawer Lock Bit with 1/2" Shank - Perma-SHIELD Coating Red -


OK, can't find this anywhere....how do I size the drawer if I am using this bit? For example, if my finished drawer length needs to be 21",

do I use a 21" side or do I have to adjust the measurement because of the bit I am using? If my finished size is to be 21" deep (the sides) and 15" wide,

I would usually (assuming 1/2 thick stock) make my sides 21" and my front and back 14". Then, with a simple butt joint, my finished drawer would be 21" X 15".

If I use this bit, would that be the same? Or would my prepared stock dimensions have to change to accommodate the bit in order to get the desired final dimensions?



Thanks in advance.

Tree of Life

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


After working on the dining room table for so long (yes, pictures soon after I let the finish cure and put it together) it was fun to do a simple little project. I made this to put on a wall out on the deck.






No hidden meaning to the tree of life. I just like it and thought it would look good in that spot. It's attached to the brick with some metal standoffs at the mortar joints, for an easy repair if/when it gets taken down.

I'm interested to see if the black acrylic will stand up to the summer sun. I might have used Extira (exterior MDF)instead if I could have found a supplier.

Furnished content.

Downloaded 2023 fWW archive. It won't unzip. Macbook Pro, Sonoma 14.4.1.

I emailed Taunton. We'll see what they say. Has anyone run into this? Resolved it?

Thanks.
