Finish Identification - is it oil, shellac, lacquer, or poly/varnish?

12-16-2018 01:51 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 6 comments »

I recently repaired a piano bench that had a large flaw in the finish. I wanted to repair it instead of strip and refinish it, but I didn’t know what type of finish it was. I made a video about testing finishes to show how I test to identify the finish – https://youtu.be/iOZyJ9S3B7k I also made a video to show how to repaired the finish on the piano bench seat – https://youtu.be/BBq5kcEcaXo Here’s the before and after of the repair:

No more brushing Lacquer

09-20-2018 08:42 PM by Woodwrecker | 11 comments »

My good friend Barry Reiter, who is an “elder” in our woodworkers guild (CFWG.ORG), and a retired chemical engineer put on a presentation last week on spraying lacquer.His depth of knowledge and experience made the presentation very enjoyable and I learned a lot.I hope there is a part 2 and maybe 3, because the hour allotted just wasn’t long enough. Anyway, I got the bug for trying out what I learned, and the next day in the shop I took out my little detail HVLP 4oz spray...

$10 HVLP Sprayer that WORKS!

04-23-2018 02:43 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

I have been playing with spraying projects lately. I like the look of a sprayed finish and enjoy it more. Cans of sprayed finish can be very expensive though over time. I happened to find an HVLP sprayer at the local HF and decided to give it a try. Surprisingly it worked, and well at that. Check out the video and subscribe to see how it works. View on YouTube

Easy finial finishing with a DVD container #1: This is how I did it.

02-20-2015 12:40 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

What can you do with DVD/CD containers when they are empty? One thing I found to do with them is use them to stain and finish finials without getting stain and finish on my hands. First, I need a way to mount the finials on the ‘spindle’. I found that the spindles have a 7/16 inch inside diameter and the finials I turned had a 7/16 inch turned dowel on them. Coincidence… not planned, I assure you. So with that, I found some scraps of MDF and I mean scrapes. I drilled a 7/16 inch ...

Workshop #28: Finishing Rack

03-29-2014 12:12 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Been working on a number of bottle openers and decided to try a lacquer finish on them as it should hold up a bit better. Problem was how to apply the finish on a round thing. Here is the simple solution I came up with. Basic piece of scrap wood (actually game that did not work out) 3/8” bolts and nuts. It worked worked well. I have 5 new bottle openers already dried with lacquer and the epoxy is now curing on them. Looking forward to delivering these to the gift shop ...

Video: IMO The Best and Easiest Way to Finish Pine

01-20-2013 05:09 AM by JSB | 5 comments »

In my opinion this is the best and easiest way to finish pine projects. This isn’t the greatest demonstration but hopefully I was able to show how easy it is to finish pine. The product I am using is Zinzer’s Amber Shellac. I suppose you could get similar results using a shellac compatible tint or dye for brown tones but I have not tried. I have never messed up a project using this method. The video is a little on the long side so I do apologize. I would love to hear any comments,...
