Old Masters Gel Polyurethane Finish

Old Masters Gel Polyurethane Finish

326 days ago by Purrmaster | 3 comments »

I got this stuff last summer and have used it on several projects since. Primarily on woods that are prone to blotching. I tried it after I read about it in a Bob Flexner book. I like it very much. It goes on and comes off with great ease. All you need to do is put some on a cloth and wipe it onto your wood. Wait a few minutes and then wipe off the excess. It will dry to the touch in a few hours. It’s not particularly smelly nor messy. It’s as easy to apply as boiled li...

A HOME RUN FOR ROUTER TEMPLATES

A HOME RUN FOR ROUTER TEMPLATES

342 days ago by motthunter | 9 comments »

I used this tape and had to say WOW! It is an advance for the art of router templates like i have never seen. You tear off a piece of this tape and attach it to your router template. Peel off the backing paper and place the template on the wood you want to rout. The tape holds strong and when you are done, you pick off the template and it pops off with zero adhesive left on the wood.. No more scraping adhesive, no more lacquer thinner to remove the adhesive, no more crazy sanding. This...

Saved me a lot of time and money

Saved me a lot of time and money

346 days ago by bluejazz | 5 comments »

Despite years of trying, we never really broke our cat of racing up the stairs and then launching herself at the door jamb, semi-firmly grasping the molding with her claws and sliding down. The results were predictable. Selling the house provided an unwanted opportunity to test this product. There are two photos of the molding here, one before using Howard’s Restor-A-Finish (Golden Oak) and one after. I hope they do the improvement justice. If it turns out the photos don’t ...

The very best super glue you will ever use.

The very best super glue you will ever use.

348 days ago by Rick M. | 17 comments »

I have used a lot of CA glue brands over the years, all the name brands, some generics, and some speciality brands that were popular among model builders but Loctite Professional is the creme de la creme of super glues. Apparently they set a world record for super glues by holding up a billion pounds or something with a few drops but my needs are more modest. Here’s what you want to know: 1. $6 /bottle (20g)2. It will actually stick things together nearly instantly, so tightly you ca...

Might as well just smear on some lemon marmalade and call it done.

Might as well just smear on some lemon marmalade and call it done.

We need a “0 Stars” selection. Better yet, negative stars. Minwax Polyshades would be a -27 stars. This little can of cr@p ruined a chest I was refinishing. Well I did, the minwax was just the weapon of choice. I should have known that the proper finish for a vintage machinist chest is NOT found in Wally World between the light-bulbs and the duct tape. But no, I was too lazy to drive over to Lowes even though IT WAS RIGHT ACROSS THE #@$##$^ PARKING LOT. So I bought this can of ...

Odies oil for Instruments

Odies oil for Instruments

412 days ago by GibsonWoodworking | 0 comments »

I have been using odies oil now for a few months and I am sold on it. I actually have all of the odies products and they are all wonderful and worth trying. The interesting thing about odies is that all the different products and designed to work together, meaning you can basically customize the finish to get the result you want.I have tried all the traditional instrument finishes, Nitro Lacquer, Tru Oil, Shellac, and Odies is by far the easiest to get a great finish with…. and you don&...

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

437 days ago by Denco | 8 comments »

I bought a Rockler glue brush and it works great, just as advertised. When the glue dries, you can peel it off. Easy to clean, spreads well. However….I was in the dollar store one day and they had Betty Crocker basting brushes….for a buck each. My curiosity got the best of me (you know where I’m going with this). I decided to do a comparison….head to head….for the title of “Best Glue Brush”. I trimmed the Betty Crocker brush so the bristles (?) ar...

Elmer's ProBond Advanced, another great product from a trusted name

Elmer's ProBond Advanced, another great product from a trusted name

466 days ago by dj1096 | 6 comments »

Like most woodworkers I have a variety of glues for various projects. I was sent a sample bottle of through the Handyman Club. To be honest, I tried this with some trepidation but was pleased at the results. On metal to wood it held every bit as well as Gorilla Glue which I normally use. Whereas polyurethane glue expands and oozes, Elmer’s ProBond Advanced performed without the messy cleanup. I can only testify to how it worked on the projects I did. The first project was wood to...

HVLP ready primer.

HVLP ready primer.

468 days ago by twc | 20 comments »

This is my first review on LumberJocks. I purchased this primer at HD to use on some knotty pine tongue & groove v-boards. I have to say it worked as well as i hoped. Being shellac based it does have a pretty strong odor but that goes away within a few hours. During the application I wore my respirator and did not spell anything but once removed there was a strong odor. A huge bonus in my eyes was that it is ready to spray straight out of the can. I used my Earlex 5000 hvlp spraye...

I like painting furniture again.

I like painting furniture again.

474 days ago by Tedstor | 22 comments »

Actually, I’ve always liked painting furniture. However, I’ve always felt inclined to use traditional, oil-based paints due to the leveling characteristics and durability. The downside is that oil-based paint is a solid gold PITA to clean-up. It takes longer for me to clean the paint brush than it does to prep and paint the workpiece. And I seem to go through a quart of mineral spirits in the process. And given that I typically prime, then paint, then paint again; I have to endure...
