      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

stock wood for cabinets

Recommended Posts

Thinking of making my own cabinets. Any idea of where one would be able to get wood of whatever kind you want for cabinets??

Any Lumber yard will stock hardwoods in a few different species. Oak, Maple, Cherry (sometimes), and some softwoods.

When you get into sheet goods, it will be harder and only oak will be readily available. Menards has a special order for about 6 species of wood. They may be your best bet, but you cannot take any back, and if it is damaged, you are SOL.

Sheet goods are very expensive. $65 up to about $150 per sheet depending on species. Don't make any bad cuts.

You'll use a cabinet grade plywood for the carcass. That could be anything from fir to a vinyl clad or a number of hardwoods.

The face frames will be solid wood. Door fronts will be solid strips of wood altering the end grain and glued. Or you can buy the doors. You'll find Oak one of the most popular and with the most options to the above. So you can't beat it for that reason plus its hard wood and will take abuse. You'll find all that at Menards and Home Depot plus all hardware you'll need.

If your looking for a more exotic wood you'll need to start calling lumber yards.

Renneberg Hardwoods in Menahga MN will have just about any kind of wood you can think of.

Thanks guys. Not sold yet on any one type of wood. Possibly Alder. I was thinking of getting a hold of Renneberg in Menahga. They actually are only a couple of miles away from the deer hunting land.

Not to scare you but, have you done this before? Do you have the equipment? That is a major undertaking.

As far as materials stay away from the big box stores. The veneer is low-low grade. If you so much as touch it with a sander you will burn through the veneer instantly. You get what you pay for.

As far as face frames, door stiles/rails/panels you will want actually wood for that and i would buy it in quanity to save some bucks. I buy it right at the mills and save some bucks.

Good luck!

I can't think of the name of it right now but there is a place in Cannon Falls that seems to have good deals from time to time if you want to buy in bulk.

Do you have a planer? If you do, you could get by cheaper, just buy the boards straight line ripped unplaned both sides and plane them yourself. If not, you can always buy it planed already, just costs a little more of course.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of tools do you own? Table saw, miter or radial arm saw? What will you make the faceframes with? Biscuit Jointer? I prefer a Kreg jig to make pocket holes myself. How about the doors? Do you plan to make them or buy them? Do you have a shaper?

Just being nosey I guess. I like to talk woodworking.

    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.
