After all, it was available in individual pieces at a lumber yard... well, they were always closed when I thought of looking it up. So yeah, they stock larger sizes, and it costs less there too....

A blunt chisel splits wood. So I think it has less to do with the tip than the over all shape of what's pounded into it. Even when I predrill next to the edge of some boards, the nail being less than...

A properly done wire nut. This discussion is beyond me. I was just using that as an example, but it's like 'we won't let you use that example', okay fine, there can be no examples. Anyway, as long as...

Yeah, they say those have "100's of uses around the home, shop, classroom, etc". Maybe if you have hundreds of shelves. :) Well, I'd think that electrical tape could be used around them for more of...

Well, I found some tonight, looking up chamfer lumber instead of "chamfer strip". They call it "chamfer molding" (WM995). Sold in full bundles only. So I'd have to order 400 ft, and those would be...

Is chamfer strip an urban legend?

Or would that be a rural legend... either way I don't remember seeing it anywhere in person, and it looks to be a wholesale item online. It's shaped like quarter round moulding but isn't round, and...
