CA Glue - Did I not take Chemistry?

06-16-2011 08:22 PM by Transition | 4 comments »

This usually isn’t a big deal, however I recently let a good deal of it build up rapidly, and got a nice little burn.

The continuation of the Pumice and rottenstone as wood fillers. I let the BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil) harden for 1 week on the boards.This is my spraying table that I use. The bottom is on a lazy susan swivel so that it can turn 360 Degrees. I made a block that I can set on top of it that has a bunch of screws through the plywood so that I can put items on top of the screw points and not have the wood sitting on the flat surface and get finish creep under the boards. The spray gun that us...
