Festool Surfix Finishing System - 4 replies
This is kind of a review and a quest for a little feedback too… I have debated for several months, or since it came out, to get the Festool Surfix Finishing system. Like a lot of us, I am a bit fearful of taking on a new finishing method because we know many a nice project has been ruined (at least for me) by finishing. Its painful to g...

Any luck spraying arm r seal - 4 replies
I’ve found this stuff to be my one, go to finish now. I usually wipe on and gotten great results. Today I sprayed it on a walnut bathroom cabinet I made. It appears to be slow at drying but looks glassy-smooth so far. I’ll finish it with oooo steel wool and paste wax. What were your results? Isn’t finishing sometimes the mos...

Case Hardening & Burns! - 11 replies

But, is it really? Lumber processors are probably just like any other manufacturer today-do it in mass quantities as fast as possible to reduce...

Gel stain sucks.... - 14 replies
That pretty much sums it up for me. I hope your exeperience is or was better. I made a nice book case for my good customer (daughter) and it is great. She is happy with it so far.

Tools-hand, power, store-bought, hand-made?? - 2 replies
Sometimes i wonder if im a woodworker or tool collector. Sometimes im better at one than the other. With more and better tools we usually get more desirable results. I see jocks here and other places who build their tools and guys who prefer to buy them. I see guys who prefer more ‘primitive’ tools vs modern tools. I see people who l...

Powermatic PJ882HH - 4 replies
I’ve been looking and looking for an 8 inch jointer. I wanted a standard machine but got tired of searching to no avail so I broke down and bought a Cadillac. I’m glad I did. Got the mobile base also. Got it in Delaware during Powermatic’s 15% off sale so I saved a little. There is no sales tax in Delaware. It is wonderful ...
