comment Stubborn laminate boards that won't lock, can I glue
Does tapping from the end close the gap temporarily? If not, I don't see how glue is going to help.

comment How can I make sure my portable toolbox hasn't got any tools missing?
@Tester101, your RFID suggestion is actually catching on in the aviation maintenance industry, where leaving a $5 tool on aircraft can cause $1000's in serious damage.

comment How much weight will a 4“x8”x20ft oak beam support?
A 4"x8"x20' oak beam is worth thousands of dollars. There's nothing comparable on Woodworker's Source, but the equivalent volume in 2"x2" blanks comes out to $1120. Sell the lumber and buy some I beams ($260 for a 6"x6"x20')!
