This part was actually quite a few months back now, but I have been a busy bee and happy monkey, in my wee allotment house, where lots of projects in the garden and fixing the house, is taking all the e...

Finishing #3: Reference Books

05-29-2019 04:46 PM by OSU55 | 3 comments »

I consider the finish 50% of a project. I continually read/hear woodworkers who are disappointed in the finished look or who are afraid to try color (dye/stain) on a project.

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...
