Gel stain uneven finish - 2 replies

I’m making a mohogony door. I conditioned the wood with a 1 lb cut of dew axed shellac. Ten applied Mohawk grain filler. Used a mahogany gel stain but I couldn’t stain the entire face of the door because the stain was drying too fast. I had to do it in sections and I now I have some lighter and darker areas. Any suggestions on eveni...

Dust collection for a JDS Multi-router (video) - 2 replies

For several years I’ve tried to figure out how to collect the dust from the multi-router. I tried a few things that didn’t work well. Finally started messing around with 6” pvc that I had laying around. It fits over a Porter Cable 690 router and hugs against the face of the multi-router. It works pretty well and gets about ...

Festool Kapex - 6 replies

My wonderful wife decided I needed a kapex for our anniversary. Who am I to argue with sound logic like that? I was using a friends Bosch miter saw who got tired of storing it since he didn’t use it often. It’s back at his house now.

ebonizing advantages - 9 replies

I need to make some pegs for my G&G furniture. I’ve been using ebony stain because I’m too cheap to pay for real ebony. Is there an advantage to ebonizing wood rather than staining it? thanks,

How do you make positive/negative router patterns? - 9 replies

I’m making breadboard ends on tables but the end of the table isn’t straight. Let’s say the ends have a very lazy M shape for discussion purposes. How would you get a perfect fit between the breadboard end and the table? I believe the proper tool for this is a pin router (or CNC) but I don’t have either one. The opti...

Felder RL 125 Dust collector for sale in Arizona - 1 reply

I bought this unit with the thought that I would be moving to a bigger shop but that isn’t in the cards now. The unit has collected one bag of dust so it’s “like new”. It also has the optional noise suppressor. Felder equipment is expensive. I’ll list the highlights that attract people to purchase Felder DC...

Rockwell Dado for sale - 3 replies

Carbide tipped, Micro set adjustable Dado. I bought it from a friend a long time ago. He said it’s been used once. I haven’t used it because I don’t make many Dado’s. It looks to be in good condition to me. Ebay has these for $35-$50 including shipping. For LJ’ers, I’ll sell it for $15 plus actu...

Silicone on breadboard ends? - 2 replies

I’m making curved breadboard ends on an end table. The breadboard end will “slip” over the end of the table like an end cap. I’ll have about a half inch engagement. Normally I would use titebond glue only in the center of the end so the table top can expand and contract as it wishes towards the edges. I’d dril...

Does your bandsaw sit too low for you? jacked mine up 7.5". - 8 replies

I’m not a giant – only 6’ tall but I felt like I had to really hunch over to see the line on the wood and the blade. Welded up a stand and it’s much more ergonomic for me. There is enough room at the bottom for a shallow drawer that I’ll make when I making drawers for another project.

I purchased some real cheap glides a while back and the ball bearings fell out of a couple during installation. I cant remember the brand. Looking for decent quality and great price. What do you recommend? I need 20 @ 22”, 100% ext, soft close, side mount glides. They can’t be more than 2.25 tall. Thanks Jocks and Jocketts

waxilit vs Johnsons Paste Wax for machine tops. - 21 replies

Got the waxilit to keep glue squeeze-out from sticking to wood but when I read it’s intended purpose I found out it’s supposed to be for sealing and shining machined table tops like table saws. I decided to compare it to a fresh can of JPW. I removed all surface rust with lacquer thinner, barkeepers friend, and more lacquer thinn...

Waxilit to protect wood from glue squeeze out. - 4 replies

Fine woodworking did an article on protecting wood from glue squeeze out using Waxilit. I hate glue squeeze out on my projects but never though to ask how people prevent it. The article said other wax will work too and as long as it doesn’t have silicone in it it will take a finish. Just need to pull the old glue off and use denatured a...
