Re: Video: Bosch Axial-Glide Miter Saw

I thought I already posted a comment. Why am I getting this twice? Also, how is the sweepstakes entered?

Re: UPDATE: Ultimate Miter-Saw Stand -- And the Winner is...

As just a do-it-yourselfer around the house I use a 10" Delta Sidekick that came with it's own attached tubular stand. I don't believe I would ever buy a saw like this and then build a stand out of sawhorses or old doors or a chunk of plywood. Ugh! Why would I want to lug that around? A couple of gripes I have is that this saw will cut "only" 12" crosscuts. Many times I could use more. Also, it would be very nice if my saw would bevel in both directions as well.

Re: Bark Side Up or Bark Side Down?

I'm no professional carpenter by a long shot, although I've done all the carpentry work around our place for years. I built a deck out of pressure treated next to our garage several years ago and just for grins I bought a 'deck book' at the local big box store. The instructions there said to place them bark side down which I thought wasn't right. I did it anyway, and now all the boards are cupped and hold some water after a rain. Not real bad, but I wish I had done it the way it looked right to me.
