Didn't build the box, but did use the resaw technique for the coaster project in that issue. Worked fine.

Didja have to run out and buy the $70 thin-kerf blade? I tried a 1/16" walnut piece with std blade and filled the house with smoke.

No, I had a 24 tooth thin kerf Freud Diablo blade. Cut 6/4 walnut and cherry like buttah. I used a Highland Hardware 1/2" woodslicer on the bandsaw to cut the coasters off the blank. Also cut like buttah with no drift or lead.

    --FWIW I've done several of their projects. The most useful is the folding router table with split tabletop clamping accessory. I use it for everything and it does store neatly. Only thing I changed was the height of the folding legs, which I increased by maybe 6". Oh, and I used some surplus linear bearings to make the fence slide parallel..
