Varnish recipe using Walnut Oil?

09-16-2010 07:42 PM by Dez | 5 comments »

A very good friend of mine recently emailed me with a status update (I asked how he was doing), and a question!I have some experience with finishes but not this type of finish – so I thought I would pose the question here as there are so many knowledgeable folks that hang out here. ”You wouldn’t have any idea of a recipe for a short oil varnish using walnut oil would you?I want to finish this instrument in a varnish with a French Polish over it.” In the meantime I w...

My Journey #2: New Toy!

09-16-2010 07:21 PM by Trimble | 8 comments »

Wow, so much can change in just 24 hours. (yeah, i’m going to pretend I wrote this last night hehehe) So, yesterday, I was slaving over a hot sheet of sand paper trying to lap the plastic parts of the fence on my newly gifted router table, in hopes of being able to use it as a mini jointer to make at least some little flat boards… Well, today, I spent a little time looking at Craig’s list for Charlotte NC, and found an add for “Millwork tool” including a ...

Wood Identification

09-16-2010 03:55 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 4 comments »

OK LJs, I need some help here. I went back to the barn where I got my Performax and picked up the clamps Ralph had. As I was leaving I walked by a wood pile and these two pieces were just laying on the ground. I kicked them over as asked what they were. He had no idea and said if I wanted them, they were mine. I was told by my wise old uncle one time, “NEVER PASS UP FREE WOOD”. So I threw them into the truck. I need help in trying to identifying them. The are local Pacific...

The new version is here! The new version is here!

Not sure what changes they made, as it looks and performs just like the old one and I’m not expert enough with it to notice any nuances. If anyone notices any significant improvements using the new version, please write a blog on it for the rest of us.

Well, yesterday turned out to be a day where things just don’t go right. I know we have all had those days, and it was just my turn apparently. I wasn’t any one thing in particular. Just a lot of little things that added up I guess. I did get all my cutting done, and that was a good part of the day. But in between cutting there were several messages that weren’t what I called positive. I can see my computer screen from where I cut, and I check in on messages every on...
