Just a quickie video encouraging everyone to rub out your poly or lacquer finishes. This is really a simple method that I use all the time to get a nice, bump-free, satin finish. There are a lot of ways to rub out a finish — all the way up to a high-gloss piano finish. But this one will get ‘er done fast and you’ll be pleased with the results.
I have used the glue and sawdust and made my own fillers. I read about using epoxy and sawdust and gave it shot and this is what I came up with. Enjoy—http://blip.tv/file/3705398
A quick little video about a new finish I stumbled upon and I truly think this is a great product. I can not say enough about the way this thing finished. Check it out-http://blip.tv/file/3702906
It was so much fun gluing the frame of the bench together (!#$%^&* *&^%$#) = need more clamps , I forgot to take pictures.I like how it’s shaping up though.This is after glue-up, before finish:To glue up, I wiped all mating surfaces (including the dowel holes), with acetone. I used TiteBond III; hope it goes well.To finish, I sanded down to 220 grit, wiped clean. I then wiped with acetone, and applied Penofin. I had to take it outside to see how it looks in its future ‘...

I have been working on a pair of nightstands for a while now and I’ve been trying to sort out what stain to use on them. They are quartersawn white oak and reproduction Stickleys so I wanted a nice older look. I started digging around in magazines, books, online, etc… and I found some great resources – like Captain Skully's forum post. Unfortunately, viewing something over the net always makes it appear a bit “off” to me. So I decided that I needed to prototy...
I have at least 8 coats of wipe on poly on this Log coffee table and it has some light streaks and or some light dust in the finish. It has cured about a week & I want to use some fine buffing compound to make it look better. I have some #3 compound for car finish that wont scratch & then plan to wax after that. I remember some say to wait for a month but I don,t want to wait that long, but don’t want to ruin the finish either. Can any of My fine friends here dig into your wareh...
Before I take the hull off the molds I want to attach the rockers and finish the bottom. I needed a change and finishing the bottom felt like a good idea. Now once I attach the rockers I shouldn’t have to go back to the bottom again. Here are a couple pics of the rockers and hull bottom with several coats of shellac rubbed on.The finish makes the flecking in the white oak stand out much better than unfinished.
Refinishing ?A few weeks ago I started working on refinishing this old chair of my grandfathers. I have been storing this chair for about six years now and with a break in business only doing a few small jobs at the moment I thought is was the perfect time. Now I will be posting the video on how I sanded the chair in a few days then I will be on to the finishing process. As I stated in my last video I have a few Ideas on what finish I might use but am unsure. Once the chair is all finished I ...
