Thanks, Herb. As for the wall, this kind of wall isn't everyone's cup o` tea, but the look changes with the colors you choose, too. There's a lot of color combos out there to play with. Personally, I was thinking a light oak instead of the gray in there, but it wasn't available. The only other color at this store was white, and I definitely didn't want that.

There was also another brand there that was pre-cut and ready to hang, but one: it was from China, and two, at least with this company, while it would take a little more work, I was able to pick the colors. I have gray backsplash in my kitchen, and figured once the wall was done, it kinda tied in, as well, I guess.

Maybe not a track but definitely a straight edge. But blade shape/quality will make a difference in the quality of cut. There's an old trick of using painters tape over the place your cutting to eliminate/reduce splintering. You could try a straight edge and tape both sides of the intended cut. I use a sheet of foam insulation, in my case 2", under the wood and set the blade depth for just over the thickness of the wood. In my case if I'm cutting say 1" wood I set the blade for 1-1/4". 1/4" into the foam hurts nothing and the foam can be used for a long time. If needed clamp the straight edge. Double check the mark and blade before cutting. You need to set the straight edge for the width of cut and the offset of the saw base. Do this once for both directions, put a piece of tape on the top side of the base and write down the offsets for next time. If you're making a cut for 10" width and the wider offset is 3" you'll need the straight edge at 7" from the edge of the board. Easiest way is to make several test cuts and measure or simply mark your cut line and back the saw off manually until the blade is on the cut line. Secure and measure for future use. Hope this makes sense as I'm doing this in my head.

- I agree.

- re: the protruding edges, I can see a few small slots there to capture all those small 4-6" ratchet bar clamps I have that now reside in tangled mess in a drawer. Or just simply clamp them on the edge.

Hi Barb, in principle, yes. I use my DeWalt cordless with a track (both recent acquisitions, the track is a cheapy but from Wolfcraft - not total junk). What you need to establish is whether the sled that rides on the track can accommodate your saw. My only complaint about the sled I have, is that it is rather flexible plastic - can be displaced upwards on manmade thick boards (e.g. formica countertops) - leading to cuts which are not necessarily perpendicular to the surface of the board.

I will probably take a leaf out of Theo’s book, and make my own sled in due course.

They all look great. I like the wall, if we had the money we would do the bedroom in knotty pine.

Neat head phone storage. Suggest you put your picture in the center hole so that Ken will not try to adopt it.
