Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...

I have never felt compelled to write a review for a product before but I am very happy to have tried this product and extreemly pleased with the results. I ordered online from the odies oil website. The following day I received a phone call from the owner who wanted to thank me for my order and find out how I heard about his product. couple days later the product arrived packed very nicely. I applied this finish to a walnut slab that i sanded to 400grit. I tried a few method to see what...

Clogs, Bogs, and Dogs

Clogs, Bogs, and Dogs

01-07-2013 07:57 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I have become accustomed to long lasting sandpaper like Norton 3x, and Freuds excellent ceramic blend sanding disks for my random orbit sander. I was running low on supplies, so I grabbed these Dewalt disks one day. Almost instantly the paper loads and clogs while sanding oak and Titebond II glue. The sanding was short lived, and I clocked about 8-10 minutes of sanding before switching pads. At first I thought the dust collection was excellent, then I realized it was only because these di...

Stress Free Glue-Ups

Stress Free Glue-Ups

12-25-2012 06:06 PM by Matthew Parker | 8 comments »

I have been gluing up sone complex assemblies recently and was looking for an easy way to get it done safely. The west system fit the bill perfectly. With the silica filler i am able to mix the epoxy to the exact consistency that i want. The fast hardner gives me just enough time. One peculiarity i found is that the larger the pot of epoxy the faster it will set up, this encourages you to use the right amount which is good. It cleans up easily with lacquer thinner. I have been giving my...

Major help for garage spray booth

Major help for garage spray booth

12-20-2012 05:36 AM by wwbob | 6 comments »

My garage is my workshop. It is also my spray room. Each time I spray, I need to drape sections of the garage with some form of plastic. I had just about given up spraying due to the hassle dealing with the 9×12 plastic sheets, then I discovered 3M Advanced Masking Film. The film comes in a roll about 12.5 inches tall. You tape the film up without unfolding it. Once the 12.5 inch wide film is taped up, you pull down on the back of the film and the it unfolds to a full 99 inches. I...

Not recommended for shellac

Not recommended for shellac

10-11-2012 08:08 AM by Purrmaster | 31 comments »

I got this stuff after I saw that the finishing test counter at Rockler had a bottle of this. I was using shellac for the first time so I got this denatured alcohol instead of the “regular” denatured alcohol. I was hoping it might have a bit less toxicity. After sticking my shellac flakes in (2 oz of shellac) and measuring out 6 ounces of alcohol I let the jar sit overnight. And basically nothing happened. So I shake and stir and it makes no difference. I even put the jar ...

Yes, you can buy an economical veneer hammer at the hardware store.

Yes, you can buy an economical veneer hammer at the hardware store.

I’ve posted two home made veneer hammers in the past as projects. This one comes right off the shelf and it works better than either of my previous attempts. The only modification needed to transform it from the Clarke Kent of the paint scraper world to the Superman of the affordable, available veneer hammer world is that you need to spend a few moments at the bench grinder dulling it down and smoothing the edge. The main requirements of a good veneer hammer: 1) It must allow you ...

I was in Harbor Freight today and found a sale on Nitrile [blue] gloves. Box of 100 medium duty [5 mil] gloves for $6.99 I stocked up on these as the regular price at the normal wood working places is $17.99 per box. That is over 250% the price from Harbor Freight I do not know for how long the sale will last.

This is The ONLY Construction Aheasive to Use

This is The ONLY Construction Aheasive to Use

07-28-2012 03:11 AM by Eric M. Saperstein | 7 comments »

I’m going to keep this VERY simple … I strayed from this product today and regret it already. Ignore all other construction adhesives. PL Ploy is the one to use. It cures in 24 hours as long as the temperature and humidity are within a normal day. It’s much faster in the summer with high humidity and it’s slower in the winter when its cold and dry. This can be adjusted by adding some moisture to the mix (spray a wood surface lightly … before applying) We...

Danish Oil vs. Danish Oil: Deftoil vs. Watco Brand

Danish Oil vs. Danish Oil: Deftoil vs. Watco Brand

07-19-2012 12:17 AM by Manitario | 9 comments »

Most of the finish on my projects involves Danish oil; it is a simple, easy to apply finish and wipe on Poly can be applied if further protection is needed beyond what the poly content of the DO provides. Most of the big box stores carried “Watco” brand, so growing up it is what I watched my father use, and then what I used when I started into woodworking. Over the last 6 months though I’ve found it increasingly difficult to find DO in big box stores, maybe the crackdown on ...
