Maybe this kind of fitting: Each block is permanently screwed to either the top or the base. You connect the parts using a supplied machine screw (not a wood screw).

I used the platform that the stock fiberglass board sat upon, but I bought two planks of pressure treated board from 84 lumber. I had to secure them together, but that was done with a 2x4 from underneath, near the end of the boards. This kept the side by side boards from moving individually. The rear of the platform offered to large bolt holes so I used a ...

Offgassing has never really been a concern with treated lumber. Direct skin contact and ingestion were concerns with CCA treatment, and to a lesser degree with the products that have replaced it. As long as you're not spending a lot of time in contact with wet wood, and as long as your pets and family members aren't gnawing on it, I wouldn't be concerned.

They should be interchangeable. You can buy a VERITAS PM-V11 BLADE FOR STANLEY & RECORD PLANES 2" which suggests the Stanley and Record designs are both very close to the original Leonard Bailey design.

If you need to attach a cabinet to a side wall or adjacent ...

While I am not a cabinet maker by trade, I have successfully built two full sets of cabinets (base and uppers) and am currently getting ready to hang my third in my newly renovated kitchen. First, always start with the corner box. If it is not already level, square and secure, you'll want to make it so before attaching the other boxes as it's your ...

There are several workshop specific brick-n-mortar stores out there that also sell online. Two that come to mind are Rockler and Woodcraft. Both sell what you are looking for. Both also have solutions for the static buildup that Ed was describing. I personally use flexible hose that has a wire built into it that is grounded. My system is a 3" PVC pipe around ...
