comment How can I paint kitchen cabinet hinges?
This isn't an answer - it's more suited as a comment on an answer suggesting the use of spray paint.

comment How do I know what's cross section area of the table leg?
It's been a while since I took Mechanics of Materials, but if you're mathematically inclined, search for "buckling strength of an eccentrically loaded cantilever column" to find the right literature/formulas for this application. Sorry, I'm feeling lazy today and don't feel like relearning the material for a proper answer.

comment Countersink and Screw Size
@TDHofstetter I think he was referring to passing through without the threads biting into the first workpiece, rather than just screwing a countersunk screw into the wood just for the heck of it.

comment Why are “Wire Nuts” not used in the UK?
Do you have a source that wire nuts significantly weaken the wire? Also, are you saying that every time a new resident moves into a building that an electrician dismantles the outlets, individually tests all the wires, and rewires everything? You can't just use a receptacle tester?
