comment Replacing drop-in stove with free-standing stove. How do I modify the kitchen cabinets?
It helps to cut something like a laminate counter top from the bottom, so the saw blade teeth don't tear it out. Also, cover the cut line in blue painter's tape.

comment Soft touch for trim nailer
It could have been a cordless trim nailer. Those have significantly more bulk than a pneumatic one, since they have to have room for a gas cartridge and piston, or a big battery and motor.

comment Why doesn't my motion sensor light work?
Is the motion sensor infrared? Heat pollution can sometimes cause them to malfunction, if you have a heat source in the garage like a refrigerator or poorly insulated water heater that might be the cause. (This probably not the reason your motion detector is malfunctioning, but if you've tried all the other options, give this one a shot.)

comment What is the difference between a lacquer polish and a varnish
The product page (if I got the right one) states the polish is just a top coat, and the wood needs to be sealed prior to application.
