You and Dye

03-25-2011 04:44 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 22 comments »

Download Low ResolutionDownload High ResolutionSubscription Options Its all about dye, “Wood Whisperer Style”. My goal with this video is to grossly simplify the confusing world of dyes, while also giving you the knowledge you need to determine the working characteristics of any dye just by looking at the ingredients list or MSDS. We’ll discuss the different types of dyes, how to apply them, and we’ll even get into the chemistry behind water-based finishes and a ke...

Shop Skills #5: Using Toner to Add or Change Color

09-13-2009 05:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 35 comments »

Sorry for the False Start Guys… I had the privacy setting turned on when I posted to YouTube. (D’oh!) It’s Finally Here! Whew! It takes a lot of work to shoot a video, edit, and get it posted to the internet. I am still struggling with posting to the internet. My HD file sizes are too big to be accepted by BlipTv and YouTube, and once I get the size down to an acceptable limit, they lose quite a bit of quality. This is a bit frustrating and makes me sad to see al...

Spray Finishing #1: Spray Cans

06-28-2012 10:52 PM by captferd | 2 comments »

In my recent blogs I posted videos on a Contemporary Clock that I built. While doing that I found some video I taped while finishing it. The face of the clock was finished with spray cans and the main assembly of the clock was stained with a spray gun. In the first part Ill show how I spray this cool looking stone paint on the face with black buttons.I really love spraying water based stains and dyes and in the next part Ill show you some of the basics to water based finishing.

Time to Step Up My Skills #7: Looking ahead to figure out what kind of finish I want

07-24-2013 02:34 AM by AngieO | 15 comments »

So… I bought a compass over the weekend so I can do my curves on my bench. Also… A friend of mine gave me a jigsaw. He had three… all the same kind… so he gave me one. Cool! So I’m close to cutting my end pieces. But over the last week I’ve been checking out Charles Neil and some videos of his on finishing. Got me really thinking about my finish on this thing. I hate the finishing process. I get these projects built and get to a point where I’m pre...

Wood stabilizing #6: Spalted elm and dyes

01-22-2019 01:35 AM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

I did some more experimenting this weekend. First up was some spalted elm for the surprise swap. I think I’ve got some stuff I can use! Next some rotted oak. We were interested to see just how spongy the wood could be and still be worth stabilizing. I’m not sure it’s worth it, but I’m glad I tried it. Then some spalted sweetgum. This shows a lot of promise, and I’m going to need to get a bunch more of it, I think. And then the dyed wood. They are, top to bottom, left c...

Sycamore Finishing #1: Has anyone had experience dyeing QS sycamore

05-06-2011 02:48 PM by mrfixitri | 4 comments »

Has anyone had any experience using dyes (not stain) on quarter-sawn sycamore? I have some beautiful stock that I want to use in table tops. But with the wild grain and softness of the wood, I thought I’d ask before taking dye to wood. There’s been a bit of tearout which I guess I’m just going to have to accept. I typically like to use brightly-colored Transtints on my figured woods. I’ve had great results on curly maple, but was wondering if dyes would muck this up. ...
