Go Ask The Lac-Bug About Finishing WoodIn one of my previous comments on Finishing Recipes and Tricks by SteveKorz and the corresponding forum, I offered these last words; ”I mean when we start thinking about shellac, maybe we should also consult with the lac bug.” I know that one can get technical when it comes to talking about finishing along with all those books and DVDs out there, along with all the recipes we get so hung up in and about….so I have decided to offer a ...

WoodWorking Vision ....how big is your wood-working vision?....and what happens to your head-room once the expansion within your head decides to get a vision of be-ing a-head outside?....where will you get your vision from and will you also frequent the market-places of traditions to honor the money-changers? ....for without a vision your wood will perish! ....just as the fire you feel within your belly of now,will just as soon also go into the alley ways of extinction,just like ...
All Good Wood Projects Need…. ....a StoryLine! Yes that’s right, and with the story line one can start with an image in their head, which when transferred to wood, shows a start. Now this project began before….where we are jumping into at this stage….but the before only included some wood, jointing of the edges, planning the two faces, then the process of glue ups, cutting the inside out with a jigsaw and the original orbital pre-sanding with #60, #80 and #100 gr...
