A good size tub for mineral oil? - 12 replies

I soak most of my pieces in a mineral oil bath. I have been looking for a good sized tub, even ordering a couple on amazon. The problem is the descriptions are very poor. The dimensions are of the top with no indication of the size at the bottom. The last one I order was supposedly 16” wide. When I got it, it was 15.25 wide at the top but ...

Need design help for a lazy susan - 11 replies

I have a customer with a teak patio table and she wants a matching 28” diameter lazy susan made of teak. I told her I would not have the time, nor would she want to pay the cost of an exact duplicate. Those end pieces would create a lot of waste and I’m paying $37 bd. ft. through my supplier. I was wondering if anyone had any ...

Laguna P/Flux 1 early review - 11 replies

I have been using a RIKON 60-200 2HP dust collector for the last couple years. It has functioned well for the money but was messy. I used a cyclone on a garbage can to make it a two stage separator. My biggest gripe are those stupid bags. Even with weather stripping the lower bag would leak around the edges and foul up my air cleaner in no t...

Need some help locating some hardware for my tent - 13 replies

Hopefully some of my fellow craft show people can help me out. We have a light dome tent and I just pucked up some of the 3” gridwall displays. I want to use s hooks to hang them from the tent but can’t find any large enough to fit over the light dome bars. The only thing I found were plant hangers which hang way too low. Anyone know...

Need help identifying a chemical- can I still use the board? - 3 replies

I am working on a treasure chest project for a friend of mine. This is the project that goes on forever. I started ages ago promising to work on it between other projects but I can’t get this thing finished. Today I’m finally working on the final steps, I dry fit the top to the bottom and it’s too small. I recheck the plans and...

What about the bottoms? - 7 replies

I did a quick search and didn’t see anything so I’ll ask here. When you have a flat project ie. cutting board, tray, lazy susan, etc., how much attention do you pay to the bottoms? For a long while I was making the bottoms look almost as good as the tops. Plane then sand to 180. Now I’m having second thoughts. Certainly it ...

Question regarding combining paints with other finishes - 3 replies

I wasn’t sure how to search for this and didn’t see anything so I started a new topic. I want to add some decorative paint to some of my products. A little pinstripe or a flower. I don’t see aerosols being a problem but what about wipe on finishes? Will mineral or Danish oil remove the paint, or can I paint over something th...

New Dewalt 735x Planer - 2 replies

I just picked up the planer a couple days ago and had the chance to plane a few boards. Very nice upgrade from my Delta lunchbox style. I try and upgrade a tool or two every year but it seems like as I upgrade, it only makes my other tools seem so much crappier. Having just upgraded to the Sawstop CS3hp. I was going to wait until next year but t...
