Any finish is turning wood black? - 6 replies

A guy dropped off a slab cross section he picked up in Arizona. He indicated it is redwood and from all apperance I would agree. Whatever finish I apply it turns the wood black or very dark. Have tried clear lacquer, varnish, danish oil, and poly. Any ideas??

Need your help - 1 reply

Just acquired this slab of Black Walnut and I’m looking for some ideas. It is approximately 36” across and 3 1/2 thick. This was next to a stack of walnut that was cut for firewood a year ago. There is about two cords of walnut that is all cut into 14” length of which I can have all I want. (it was a very good day)

14" Delta Saw Tune Up - 1 reply

Thanks to Bothus for inspiring me to take a look at my 14” Delta Band Saw. I have never been real happy with the saw so it was getting minimal use in my shop.
