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. Finishing is a learned skill, just like operating various power tools, using hand tools, making/fitting various joint types, proper design, material selection. etc. As such, time and effort need to be expended to gain the knowledge and physical skills to impart a beautiful finish to a project. What if you spent as muc...

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #3: Glaze applied

11-23-2018 09:22 PM by kordwood | 4 comments »

Rubbing the walnut gel stain really fills the pores of the oak. I’ve found it’s important to wipe it off thoroughly —and quickly — in order to get good contrast. This piece is small, so I didn’t have to use mineral spirits to remove excess glaze. In 24 hours or so, it’ll be ready for the first of two coats of satin Waterlox.

American flag bench #4: Torched the slats then sanded them down to 320 grit. Stained the red stripes

11-20-2018 07:38 PM by Dubbs | 0 comments »

So I torched the slats in an attempt to make it look more rustic. Sanded them down to 320 grit. I found the poplar sort of burns blotchy or I’m just not too good at it yet. Had Hoe Depot mix up some blue and red stain for me. ($32) Also picked up oil based spa urethane high gloss (expensive.. but I told worth it.)I was able to get the union marked and taped and stained the red stripes! I think it came out pretty good. Cant wait to lay out the star stickers for the union. to b...

Kentucky coffeetree

09-10-2018 12:52 AM by silver1 | 0 comments »

Hey all, Was wondering about stains you have used on Kentucky coffeetree. This is my first experience using it in a project. I have a headboard that I am using as part of a bench. The headboard and legs will be painted white and the seat for the bench (KY coffeetree) will be stained. I do not have many stains on hand to do samples with. I am not for sure if I will do dark and keep it natural. Would like to see some pics because there are not any online, that I have found anyway. Than...

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me to the end. In this video I cover all the little things that have to happen before I can finish, as well as the finishing process itself.
