Salad bowl finish

Salad bowl finish

I read about Clapham’s salad bowl finish for turned bowls and started using it on several projects including my last boxes. It goes on fast and dries quickly, give wood a nice glow, food safe.

Spackling Compound

Spackling Compound

1339 days ago by BigDaddyO | 5 comments »

I’m sure most of you have used Spackling compound before. I must have tried dozens over the years and have never been happy with any of them. Either they don’t stick to the wall well, or they shrink too much, or they dry so hard it makes sanding difficult, or they don’t smooth well. I was at my local paint store and needed some more spackle to repair a water damaged ceiling joist. I picked up the only thing they had. MH Ready Patch. When I got it home and opened it...

Hot glue gun for woodworking

Hot glue gun for woodworking

1359 days ago by WoodLe | 5 comments »

I bought this Hipurformer several months ago and I’m nothing but pleased with the performance of this high quality glue gun. I was a little hesitant to spend the money at first, but so far this glue gun is all that is bragged up to be! My first project for the Hipurformer was to assemble window headers that I was making for my house remodel. The headers are a flat board with crown moulding around the top, which are mitered at the corners. (so there are two very short pieces on the e...

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler (Mahogany)... Its PINK!

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler (Mahogany)... Its PINK!

1382 days ago by spaids | 18 comments »

As a grain filler I have to say that I believe it will do the job. As a Mahogany grain filler I think this is some kind of a joke. Its absolutely pink. Even less natural looking than it appears in the photo. That stirring stick was a scrap of white oak and its sitting on mahogany. Why on earth would I want to fill mahogany grain with a pink filler? Because of the color, this product is a FAIL.

Hand sanding that I actually like doing...really

Hand sanding that I actually like doing...really

Bill Bush was at the Chantilly Va. wood show this spring demonstrating his finishing products, so I had a seat, watched and listened as he showed how he finishes his projects. I did not purchase the kit but rather the Bush oil, some PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) sand paper, fiber pads and a DVD. I have since called to order additional sand paper and a couple sanding blocks, so this review is for the sanding products and the technique he uses, and well I use it now too. First the PSA sand...

Crystalac Grain Filler

Crystalac Grain Filler

1484 days ago by vicrider | 37 comments »

I have recently discovered a product called Crystalac Grain Filler (Rockler, Amazon). It is water based, easy to apply, dries clear and will fill open grain woods like Oak, Walnut, and Koa in 2 or 3 coats. It is the consistency of loose toothpaste and costs about $25/qt. But a quart will last a loooooong time. IMHO, it is hands down the best grain filler I have ever used. It is not granular, doesn’t require thinning, doesn’t need volatile chemical reducers, doesn’t require stain or color to m...

Excellent performance at a decent price

Excellent performance at a decent price

DISCLAIMER:This is the 1 and only spray system I’ve ever used/seen so take this with a grain of salt. this review is based on my expectations and experience from this unit. I have been brushing/wiping finish, but always wanted to spray for the benefits of:1. time (faster process, and faster drying time – also less contamination probability of the finish)2. ease and effort (less sanding, and less effort applying finish) I got this unit used off of craigslist for a bargain pr...

After watching Scott Phillips on tv I got increasingly interested In this Gorilla glue. I picked up a small bottle and tryed on the first project I could. It was a box with I actualy sold so I never got to post It on here. It was made with curly maple. So a fairly standard wood.I spread A healthy amount on each miter and brushed it out. I made this box with no splines because I wanted to put this glue to the test. And boy did I.First the day after glue up I was outside brushing lacquer onto i...

Ever wish you could spray a finish without the complexitys of compressors hoses and the clumsy time it takes to clean out the gun after?Ever wish you didnt have to go through the effort of the already mentioned set up just to spray something like a jewelry box or small items? Well this lacquer is for you!In a convenient spray can just shake it up and your good to go.You can even turn the tip of the nozzle to change the spray from horizontal to vertical.It sprays nice and even however it does...

Disposable supplies

Disposable supplies

For some time, I tried to find something to use when working with small amounts of glues or finishing supplies. A sign painter friend told me of these ‘Souffle Cup’. We know these as sample cups when we go to the deli and are given a small sample. The cups come in many sizes, from about 1/2 oz to about 4oz and in untreated paper or plastic. The benifit of these cups are several; First, you always have a clean container into which you can put small amounts of various glues, ...
