Q. We have some cabinets made from pine and I wonder what is the chance of grain raising. We work in an with an average EMC of 7 to 9 percent. The cabinets are then finished with water base coating. My question is what will this do to the grain (creating raised grain). I know dimensions change but what is the probability of the grain raising?
There are many wood characteristics that can affect drumstick performance and sound.
Q. We use steam in several processes, including the kilns. The new boiler supervisor mentioned that we needed a desuperheater as the steam was too hot after the steam goes through a pressure reducer. What is a desuperheater and why is the steam too hot?
Q. Can you please suggest a non destructive/non pin moisture meter to check walnut core moisture, the thickness of walnut would be 10/4 or 60 mm?
Q. I am having trouble with the saw blade on my table saw loosening after a short time. It happens when we install a new blade....that is, the nut becomes loose. What should I be looking for?
Q. We are looking to make some legs that need to be as strong as possible. What characteristics should we be looking for?
Q. I just bought some lumber from a small mill and they were not certain but thought it was honey locust, but it might be elm. Any ideas how to separate the two?
Q. Explain what a glue filler and a glue extender are.
Q. I am making replacement wood columns that require, due to historical authenticity, 10 staves that are joined with a spline. The column shape is called a regular decagon...I took geometry and actually learned something that proved to be somewhat useful. We are in serious discussions about the correct adhesive to use to be historically correct. It looks like there was no adhesive used in the original columns, but maybe it was hide glue and it has disappeared over the years. What do you think about adhesives?
Q. In your many helpful suggestions on gluing, you indicate that freshly prepared surfaces make stronger joints. Why is that?
Q. I am planning to build a large dining room table, about 10 x 3.5 foot. I have some 2 inches x 8 inches x 12 feet Honduras mahogany (beautiful pieces) I plan to use. I will glue them up, edge to edge. I have questions: 1. Is this project feasible or advisable? 2. What adhesive should I use? 3. What about the table frame? 4. How much will the table top expand or contract in width? 5. How do I finish the ends and top to prevent cracking and warping?
Q. With the price of FAS 1-Face just a bit above No.1 Common, our supplier is encouraging us to try FAS 1-Face instead of No.1 Common. We did a test run and found that our yields did not change much at all. So, we are not going to change grade. Does this make sense to you?
Q. We have some concern about allergic reactions in wood. Can you perhaps tell us more about this?

Q. We have just had two panels of cedar with glue line failure. Normally, we have excellent results. We are using a two-part cross-linking PVA emulsion adhesive with a catalyst. We are checking the glue edges for squareness and flatness; we are positive that we have a good, even glue spread; we are keeping the open time to less than ten minutes; we are making sure we have a four-hour clamp time; and we do not machine for 24 hours. Our press has manual pressure. What should we be looking for?
