Top notch Waterborne Finish

Top notch Waterborne Finish

1688 days ago by mckenziedrums | 2 comments »

When I moved into the new house I had to set up my “spray” area near to a hot water heater… That pretty much eliminated any chance I had of spraying flammable liquids. Since I don’t have a dedicated work shop I needed a water based finish I could count on. I’ve tried many of the brands you can get from the box stores and they always had that blue tinge to them that drove me nuts on naturally finished wood. Sure I can get away with blue drums but I didn’t wa...

Better than your average Tung Oil by miles...

Better than your average Tung Oil by miles...

1688 days ago by mckenziedrums | 14 comments »

I was surprised I didn’t see a review for this one… In the world of drum building (and probably most woodworking in general) tung oil is the gateway drug to finishing. It’s pretty much impossible to screw up and while it takes forever to apply in amounts that actually build up, you end up with a fantastic finish. Myself… well I’m a little impatient when it comes to finishing. When I do use an oil finish I want it to build quickly, fumes be darned. Waterlox ...

all in one - color and finish

all in one - color and finish

1694 days ago by Rick | 4 comments »

Sometimes when all a project needs is some oil to pop the figure and liven up the color, it seems that a wipe-on oil finish is the best solution. Some local, experienced, woodworkers pointed me to Deft danish oil. They all use it on their rocking chairs and other various projects. Compared to Watco, I believe that Deft utilized more resin in their formula. So while prividing the great hand rubbed look it provides much more protection than the standard danish oil. I also prefer the way th...

Pretty good so far

Pretty good so far

1708 days ago by Rick | 7 comments »

I just bought a can of this at a rockler store. I think it was on sale for $14. I was finishing up a christmas present that I wanted to use wax on and I wanted the best for this one. I had read other review and everything seemed pretty positive about it. My experience wasn’t any different. It “seems” to work well and I’m not really sure how much protection it provides. I was hoping that it would dry harder than it does. It also doesn’t dry “instantly...

Rust Remover & Preserver for South Africans

Rust Remover & Preserver for South Africans

1739 days ago by PG_Zac | 1 comment »

I can’t speak for it’s wood finishing / polishing properties, but MAN it’s fantastic for removing rust !!!.Here in a very rural area in South Africa, I have no easy access to large stores of any kind, let alone a specialist woodworking store. I’ve never seen Boeshield or the other products many LJ’s use for protecting their machines, I doubt that they are even in the major centers in S.A. I had a problem with rain on my Bandsaw – here is the upper guide...

Homemade veneer flattening solution

Homemade veneer flattening solution

1751 days ago by RBWoodworker | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a veneer pump, and got some veneer along with the deal.. but the veneer that I got, was rolled in a protective paper and left for who know’s how long.. it took the curve of the roll well and would not lay flat no matter what I did.. I put it between two platens and left it for 3 weeks and that did not do the trick…SO.. Lee Jesberger has this solution on his website prowoodworkingtips.com and it consist of 1 gallon of water..8 oz. of pure glycerin which is avai...

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

1766 days ago by drfixit | 9 comments »

This is going to be my first review here at LJs and hope some one finds it of use. I normally use the cheap little shop brushes for spreading glue in joints and on tenons and such. I went by the local WoodCraft the other day to pick some up and came across these polypropylene glue spreaders. There is 6 in a pack and at $3.50 I figured it would be worth a shot. Love em! I use a lot of Tight Bond glue, after using one the other night while glueing up a clock case, I simply let it dry over n...

Great for something, but not for spreading glue!

Great for something, but not for spreading glue!

1794 days ago by thiel | 14 comments »

I hate the idea of tossing out acid brushes after a few uses (they’re steel!) and I’ve been looking for alternatives (for the record, there aren’t any :-) so I bought these little dealios. Long story short, they are TERRIBLE for spreading glue. They act more like a squeegee—pulling glue away from your intended target. Which brings us to what they ARE good for, and that’s scraping glue off once its skinned over. These things are a nice plastic, they are g...

Hi Guys. I don’t know if I’m doing this right or not. There was a previous review of this gun and I just wanted to give my review as well.Came across Woodgal’s entry about the Critter so I read more reviews from Amazon. Got my Critter Sprayer from Amazon for $33.81 free tax/shipping.Got 12 regular mouth Ball mason jars from our local Stater Bros. supermarket for around $10.Filled 1 with blue tinted water (used food coloring) just for practice, 1 with clear water for cleani...

Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show

Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show

1935 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 113 comments »

Calico Polish Off Artifical Nail and Polish Remover. Excellent and effective product for removing CA glue build up from fingers. I haven’t had the need (knock wood) to separate my fingers from themselves or a workpiece using this product, so I do buy the Super Solvent that is a shelfmate of the other Hot Stuff Cyanoacylate glues I use. However after fiddling with some inlay banding today, I developed a thin coat of CA on the fingers. At $2.99 the Polish Off (with Acetone) is significant...
