Anyone use thin kerf hinge blades in a router? - 5 replies

I recently saw some boxes using these: They looked nice, but I see that they recommend using a drill press to cut the kerf slots. That seems a bit cumbersome, and it seems it would be a lot easier doing it on a router table? Anyone have any suggestions or experience? Thanks in ad...

Gluing after tung oil? - 6 replies

I’m working on a project, where it would be much easier to finish with tung oil, then glue up the pieces. However, I’m worried that the glue bond might not be as strong after the tung oil, as opposed to gluing up the raw wood. Should I wait until after finishing to glue, or can I finish first, then glue? Thanks in advance!

What do you use to apply Tung Oil? - 18 replies

I’m currently using cheesecloth to apply tung oil to some boxes. I then use clean cheesecloth to wipe off the excess and buff. Do you recommend anything that might be better? Also, if cheesecloth is what you use, do you have a good source for bulk? Those little bags at the hardware store start to add up!

How to avoid wood swell? - 4 replies

I’m in the process of making some cheese boards as gifts. I’m using primarily birdseye maple, combined with one of several other woods (wenge, lacewood, zebrawood, etc.). For the first few boards, I’ve sanded down to 320 grit, then used several coats of B’s Oil Salad Bowl & Wood Preserver, applied over a few days. Ini...

What wax to use? - 12 replies

I see a number of projects listing wax as a final finish. I’m wondering what products you recommend? I’m looking to bring out the best in some curly and birdseye maple. I plan on starting out with a few coats of tung oil, but I see some people recommending a wax finish. Any suggestions? Thanks,Triman
