I was having troubles with stain rimming are fish eyeing, not sure which one. Well I remembered seeing Todds video on applying finish. So I called him spent about twenty minutes on the phone with him and he gave me several tips. They payed off I was able too finish the project for a customer. I have admired his work and videos on here for a few years now he is top notch. He is allways willing too help others on here when they have a problem. Many others here are as well aint this site great.
The project was an oak table top that I sanded and stripped twice, with chemical stripper and used a cleaner after that . It had been used for years and put up in an attic, finish was worn bad in spots. Several types of furniture polish had been used on it. The approns and legs took the stain fine the first time just the top was a problem. The stain I had too use on it was a poly stain too match other pieces in the room. Did I mention I hate poly stains , quick note I have found that if you heat them and strain them you get better results. But I still HATE THEM.
I will stop rambbling now just wanted too say thanks and remind all of you how lucky we are too have people like Todd here. And if I can ever help any of you just ask I will gladly give my number .
