Dan -

Beautiful work!

If not a trade secret, what is a “heat gun finish”?

How are your new tiles coming along?

It’s all really great work, Dan. I think you have an awsome grasp of the true meaning of Arts and Crafts. I don’t see copying here but real original thoughts with in the frame work of the movement. Thanks.

Very nice as always Dan. Very nice combination of woods. I went to the web site you show on the tips and tricks but don’t find where it talks about the wax and heat gun. So how do you do this heat gun deal?

the heat gun pushes the wax around and makes it easy to shine, it melts into the cracks, joints and gaps.
