information woodworking resource from Woodcentral - free woodworking information cabinets kitchens Assemblying Door Cabinets 
It may not seem like much but I have been able to assemble a raised panel door, square it and clamp it in just over 3 minutes. BIG DEAL right, the faster and more accurately you can assemble a door, the more time for squaring it up before the glue grabs. Here is the sequence I have used to assemble literally hundreds of cabinet door and interior doors. There are 22 doors here all have been dry fitted and they are now ready for the glue and clamps.

information woodworking resource from American Wood Council - information Calculating the Fire Resistance of Exposed Wood Members 
55 pages (740 KB PDF) - The superior fire performance of heavy timbers can be attributed to the charring effect of wood. As wood members are exposed to fire, an insulating char layer is formed that protects the core of the section. Thus, beams and columns can be designed so that a sufficient cross section of wood remains to sustain the design loads for the required duration of fire exposure. A standard fire exposure is used for design purposes.

information woodworking resource from American Wood Council - information Designing for Lateral-Torsional Stability in Wood Members (PDF) 
43 pages (496 KB PDF) - Lateral-torsional buckling is a limit state where beam deformation includes in-plane deformation, out-of-plane deformation and twisting. The load causing lateral instability is called the elastic lateral-torsional buckling load and is influenced by many factors such as loading and support conditions, member cross-section, and unbraced length. In the 2001 and earlier versions of the National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction [1] the limit state of lateral torsional buckling is addressed using an effective length format whereby unbraced lengths are adjusted to account for load and support conditions that influence the lateral-torsional buckling load.

24 pages (229 KB PDF) - The yield limit equations specified in the National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction (AF&PA, 1997) for bolt, lag screw, wood screw, nail, spike and drift pin connections represent a mechanics-based approach for connection design. This approach, which was incorporated in the NDS for Wood Construction in 1991, permits the designer to determine effects of member thickness, member strength, fastener size, and fastener strength on lateral connection values for the majority of connections found in wood construction. This report covers calculation of lateral values for single dowel type fastener connections using a generalized and expanded form of the NDS yield limit equations. These general dowel equations apply to NDS connection conditions, but also ....

information woodworking resource from Ken A. Nishimura - Some Ramblings About NiCd Batteries 
I have decided to write this diatribe due to the continuing Ni-Cd battery saga. Yes, batteries are LOW tech -- they can not compare to the bells and whistles of our latest HTs, but... your new HT is but a paperweight (albeit an expensive one) without power from your batteries. This is not a response to any particular prior post, and is unsolicited, so in short, I am not flaming anyone.... But, I thought it may be useful, so, without further ado, let us take a more careful look into NiCd battery management.
