  1. Great job Chet! The bed and the nightstands look better than anything you could buy.
  2. I would assume that they have updated the house to a more modern style and the front door doesn’t fit. Then again maybe Drew just wants a challenging build.
  3. Not necessarily. Generally will have trim at the edge of the door, so if you take the trim off you will get the actual size of the rough opening. If you went to Home Depot and were looking for a interior door, and your rough opening (stud to stud width and floor to header length) is 31”x81”, you would buy a 30”x80” door, once installed you would trim 2 sides and top with casing. The extra inch on long measurement usually requires some slope in case on an entrance/exterior door to protect from water infiltration and flooring. On an interior door, the extra inch accounts for flooring as well. Now if for some strange reason there is no trim, in your photo it has trim, measuring the door probably would work. If you measure the door that should give you a close enough idea on size. First step should be removing the trim. The reason for the door being smaller than the opening is so that you can shim, insulate and weather strip. You don’t want the door right up against the Jack or King Studs, it will bow the jamb when you screw to framing and mess with how the door sits in the frame (jamb) and affect operation.
  4. The first thing to do is measure the opening. The door and jamb should be an inch smaller. Another thing to search is Stave core construction. Doing solid wood can obviously be done, but the grain direction is important as well as the species, want a wood that doesn’t have large swings in wood movement. If it is covered by a porch you can use a wider array of finishes. I know not specific but just things I researched when I was thinking of doing ours after the estimates we got that I mentioned in that other thread. Check out This is Carpentry, I think Gary Katz made a couple doors, he is a “finish and trim carpentry” expert.
  5. I’m surprised you didn’t set up some elaborate computer system that recorded you in slow motion, automatically edit and upload to your social media accounts. 😀
  6. We had a basic door priced for our house, nothing elaborate, just something you would see at a home center, but since it was a custom size due to door opening, the let’s call it $4K door was going to be $11,000. So I could see how that door is $26k.
  7. Coop, the key if machined properly should provide all the tension to keep the pulley to the shaft, hence no need for a screw or anything. Now since the key came out, I would still try to contact PM cause that shouldn’t come out without some force. My guess is that the key was never fully seated and over time worked its way out.
  8. First thing would be how big of a cut your taking, it sounds like it’s being bogged down. Have you tried with less down force pressure to see if it happens. Have you or are you able to check the belt tension?
  9. Hopefully it raises a lot of money!
  10. Great job Coop. You may want to brush some epoxy on the bottoms of the Mahogany so water doesn’t wick up from the ground.
  11. Good reasoning, your turning into a major techie!
  12. If they had to order, why didn’t you get the Pro you wanted?
  13. I still have a 7 and need to upgrade. If I wait 6 months they will then be on the iPhone 25
