I’m really sort of an old tools kind of guy, and therefore I’m never very enthusiastic when the time comes to use a poly finish. As a matter of fact, I lurk on another list where we refer to this stuff polyurinate. I’ll use shellac or French Polish in a heartbeat. Now, I’ve used the Minwax poly by the gallon for past projects, and I first picked up a quart of the Minwax water based poly from the big blue bigbox store in order to finish out a client’s library t...

This is the first time I’ve used a hide glue and I must say that I am very pleased with everything about it.

Many times in my projects, I apply glue with a toothpick in mortises and again on their matching tenons. This glue rolls easily off the pick, lea...

this glue bottle has a brush hidden inside with an adjustable metal stem. The stem can be adjusted for different levels to keep the brush at the level of teh glue in the bottle by screwing a set screw on top. The brush helps spread the glue on wood with even strokes. This is a great glue bottle at a very reasonable price! God Bless,Hawg

We all know and love WD-40 for different applications. Well, the new version with the Smart Straw has a new use that you probably did not know about. If you pull off the sraw the opening is the perfect size for those spray can nozzles! Recently, the nozzle of my spray can of glue that I use to affix my patterns to my scroll saw stock got clogged with glue. That meant that I had to soak it in solvent and clear the orfice. look at the second picture above and you can see a spray can nozz...
