Danish Oil

05-22-2012 12:03 AM by thecarpentershands | 4 comments »

So, a fellow carpenter just told me about danish oil so naturally, i picked some up. I just put it on a cherry and ash box which I will be finishing soon and WOW! I was blown away by the enhancement of the oil. I have mainly been using linseed oil, shellac and polyurethane lately but I really think danish oil is going to open pandora’s box of finishes. Again, I’ll say WOW! God bless.

Danish Oil and the care of......

04-21-2011 06:23 AM by majeagle1 | 5 comments »

Just curious…..there are so many opinions out there regarding how to care for your project when it is finished in Danish Oil and then Waxed…. More wax? Furniture Polish? Cleaner then Wax? What do you guys and gals out there use and why? I usually just re-wax with more of the same that I normally use, but not everyone has that available…...

A Guitar for Daniel #5: The first 90% of the project...

12-18-2012 04:50 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

...takes 90% of the time. The remaining 10% of the project takes an additional 90% of the time. So it feels like we’re closing in, but finishing and hardware installation are still going to take a little while. Sunday morning Daniel was off partying with friends in San Francisco. I went out to the shop and did a bunch of shaping, and then Charlene and I went over to Tall Toad Music and, with the help of the very friendly staff there, dug through the basement ‘til we found ...

Oak Wall/Canopy #5: The Finish

07-24-2009 03:41 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

The finish was sprayed yesterday. It was a combination of a dye stain, wiping stain, and a protective coat. The dye stain was srayed on only. Since it was thinned with about 50 parts to one thinner, it dried in about 10 seconds. That gave me the very dark tone I was after. Some production lines use this process only for their color, but I feel it doesn’t give the piece enough depth. I still use a wiping stain, in this case Dark Walnut, to “pop” the grain. The finish...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...

Poly (?) Finish that just won't dry

09-07-2010 04:42 AM by OhhCrap | 3 comments »

Have a relative that has a problem. They have a bench seat, top is simple AC nicely edged, the box under the seat is cedar lined. They believe it has a Poly based finish. Exposed surfaces are nice and dry, but when you open the lid, the finish is still tacky, and I mean TACKY. Flies can get stuck to it, we’re talking duct tape sticky and it’s been like this for over year. How the heck does one go about fixing this? They have left the lid up for weeks on end to no avail.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1148: Different Finishes on My Key Ornaments

10-08-2013 11:14 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was filled by doing lots of odds and ends. Among other things, I was trying to get some planning done for our upcoming trip to Chicago. I haven’t mentioned it much because things have been so up in the air about everything that it has seemed like things have changed every five minutes. It is a little unsettling to say the least. Add to that the issues with my car. It is nothing that I would consider to be “major”, but nonetheless it is a ten year old car with...

Prep for Finishing

04-25-2010 08:48 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 2 comments »

the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean the face of boards, and there are those that prefer hand tools and use a smoothing plane. The smoothing plane takes some practice and I do enjoy using hand tools on my projects but it is definitely a lot more work. No...
