Salt and Pepper Mill finishes

05-04-2011 04:26 PM by Craig Havran | 1 comment »

So I’m going to be turning a salt and pepper mill this weekend and I’m curious as to what kinds of finishes I should use. I was planning on a sanding sealer and maybe a friction polish, but does anybody know if the salt from the mill will damage any of this? should I use a poly? Thanks everybody…. i love this site.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #321: I Need Some Advice from You

04-26-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

OK, now it is my turn to have the questions. I know there are many seasoned woodworkers out there that will hopefully be able to help me with this: What do I do to get the dark, moldy-looking streaks out of oak?

Hide Glue Wash Mix for Cherry I read somewhere that a thinned Hide glue wash was at one time used as a preconditioned to cure blotching so have taken 2oz of Titebond Liquid Hide Glue and mixed it with 12 oz of water as a second test. The reason also for choosing the liquid hide was it was more transparent vs being a cloudy white when mixed with water and this I felt would dry more transparent. Anyway, I sanded my sample board with 220 as prep, applied a liberal coat of the hide glue was...

Pow-wow Dancer -painting in progress

I have been painting on this guy for about a week and still haven’t got him finished! There are a lot of little details and it just seems to take a while. I hate not to be carving, but I really don’t mind the painting that much, at least not like some carvers do! It can really add to a good carving, depending on the subject or style of the carving and I learned to draw and paint a long time before I started carving. I use different painting techniques, but I’ll describe ...
