Really is fast dry, hard to work with

Really is fast dry, hard to work with

05-11-2018 06:45 PM by jamsomito | 1 comment »

I’ve been using minwax oil stains for years with pretty good success. This particular project called for a different color and better uniformity so I branched out and took a friend’s suggestion of the fast dry varathane oil stain. In the end, I was able to get a good cover with good color, but it was so fast drying that it was difficult to work with and took a few pieces before I learned best practices with this product. —FIRST IMPRESSIONS— First impressions we...

Excellent Spray Gun at a Reasonable Price

Excellent Spray Gun at a Reasonable Price

05-09-2018 09:35 PM by Rich | 6 comments »

I was looking around for a gravity gun for my older Fuji Q4. The siphon gun that came with it performs well, but I wanted something that I could use when spraying smaller projects. The prices of around $300 for a Fuji or Apollo gun were higher than I wanted to pay. Given the number of less expensive HVLP systems out there, I hoped I could find one that sold the gun separately, and maybe they do, but I didn’t see any options for that on their web sites. I was close to giving up and...

Titebond II Fluorescent Glue

Titebond II Fluorescent Glue

03-03-2018 05:32 PM by Rich | 15 comments »

(This is from a blog post I did as part of my UV in the Shop series. Since it is a product, I thought I’d add a review for it as well). Well, who knew that Franklin made a Titebond glue with fluorescent dye added? I sure didn’t. But they do!It’s Franklin 2316 Titebond Fluorescent Glue. I’ve read countless articles about glue residue and how to expose it. Conventional wisdom is to dampen it with warm water and the color will change. I’ve used that techn...

2P-10 RT Gel! Great stuff

2P-10 RT Gel! Great stuff

02-28-2018 09:08 PM by woodworm1962 | 8 comments »

I recently got and used 2P-10 Ca Gel Glue. I need something that will hold fast and set up very fast to continue working on a piece. I tried every sort of HOT GLUE under the sun They all popped off. So I watched a few videos on this CA Glue called 2P-10 which uses an activators to set in seconds. It comes in 4-5 different viscosities but seems everyone uses the gel so that’s what I got with a can of activator. In fact they have a gel with rubberized particles in to so its some wha...

Howard Butcher Block Oil, Conditioner, and Cleaner

Howard Butcher Block Oil, Conditioner, and Cleaner

01-09-2018 12:41 AM by DMiller | 14 comments »

I don’t normally review products, but this is one i’d like to because I can’t say enough good about the people at Howard. Long story short, several months ago I bought a bottle of Howard’s Cutting Board Oil. Around a month later, I was fortunate to sell a large number of my products to a high end decor store. They bought cutting boards, cheese knives, and spatulas; because of this food safety and finish durability was extremely important. Around half of the product...

A Great Finish for Furniture Projects

A Great Finish for Furniture Projects

01-08-2018 10:29 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 9 comments »

I have been using this finish now for a few months and have really found it to be a great finish for furniture projects. Especially, if they are going to be subject to water. I started out putting it on a bathroom vanity top made of cypress. Beautiful color and depth was achieved with multiple coats and sanding between coats with 400 grit. Final coats we wet sanded. I next used it on an antique table restoration and couldn’t have been more pleased as well as my client. Finally,...

Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint - First use review

Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint - First use review

09-04-2017 11:52 PM by diito | 7 comments »

Like most I’ve seen this paint advertised at Woodcraft. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of reviews of it out there and the Woodcraft guys I’d talked to didn’t have a lot of say other than it’s really thick stuff. The price was a little high and I’ve always had fantastic results with General Finishes Milk paint on projects that called for paint so I never seriously considered buying it. That is until I started a stuffed animal storage project for my nearly...

HOMERIGHT Spray Shelter

HOMERIGHT Spray Shelter

08-20-2017 09:53 PM by Rich | 10 comments »

If you’re like me, spraying finishes frequently and don’t have a dedicated spray booth, you know how it gets all over things. Even with the two-car garage door open, and side door open for cross ventilation, topcoats like lacquer get in the air and settle on everything. I happened on the HOMERIGHT Spray Shelters on Amazon, and decided to give the smaller tabletop model a try. At just over $30, it seemed like I didn’t have much to lose. As it turned out, it’s a ni...

Top snapped apart on one bag

Top snapped apart on one bag

08-11-2017 07:33 PM by ColonelTravis | 8 comments »

Bought a pack of 4 last spring, they were doing great until the top of the screw cap on one broke after almost a year. Really ticked about that because I had plenty of finish left in the bag. The other three bags are fine, and I’d like to buy more when I’m done with them because the concept is great. But if another top breaks I will not. Don’t know how the top of the cap came off. Went to open it a week ago and saw that the top was broken and the finish was ruined. In the...

Aerosol Spray Heads

Aerosol Spray Heads

07-02-2017 01:48 AM by Rich | 4 comments »

Not the most exciting product to review, but if you’re unhappy with the spray pattern you’re getting from an aerosol spray can, these heads will make a difference. At only $0.45 apiece, they are a bargain. They also make good replacements for clogged heads. Note that they have male posts intended for female can tops. They perform as described. The fan heads put out a nice, even fan, and can be rotated for vertical or horizontal spray patterns. The fine spray head is really...
