Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat #2: Waterbourne Finish Coatings

01-06-2015 04:15 AM by pjones46 | 1 comment »

Wash Coat #2: Waterborne Finish Coatings As previously mentioned in Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat #1, most any standard finish can be used as a wash coat. These are Lacquer (both waterborne and solvent type/nitrocellulose), polyurethane (both waterborne and oil based), Oil-based Varnish, and Shellac. The above being said, lets talk Waterbourne. It really makes no difference which you use waterborne lacquer, waterborne shellac or waterborne polyurethane since they all are simply...

The trouble with Yew

Then I tried to find some. Yew, as a wood is as ...

Am I just picky or what?

08-14-2010 01:22 AM by Dez | 2 comments »

When I left you I was just about to cut all the pattern pieces. Well I did this successfully and cut all the pieces 2 mm longer than necessary, to allow for clean-up. With pieces 6 mm x 3 mm its very difficult to avoid split out on the cut, even with an 80 tooth cross cut blade. The two mm allows for precision sizing as well. First to clean up the 45° ends. Here’s my belt sander, 915 mm x 100 mm belt. 180 grit for this job. Surrounded by the usual clutter. The mitre gauge for ...
