Amazing primer! Wish all my finish coats were as smooth.

Amazing primer! Wish all my finish coats were as smooth.

So following the advise of Earlextech (Thanks Sam!) I switched from my old standby primer to Zinsser Bullseye Waterbased 123. It sprayed so nice and laid down so smooth. Finish coat smooth. Far superior to what I was used to spraying. The project is a wall desk with lots of nooks and crannies. Hardware removed for finishing. Areas that would be ripe for runs or drips. Nada Nada none! The fresh gallon required minimal water (less than 5%) to thin. Sprayed it with an Earlex 6003 Gr...

UV protection in a clear finish

UV protection in a clear finish

02-11-2021 11:06 PM by BillGo | 8 comments »

I have been working with woods that have bright colors when freshly cut and worked. The problem with these woods, is that the color fades quickly over time. I was going to give up and move on, when someone recommended this finish for it’s UV protection, so I thought I would give it a try. Availability:https://www.amazon.com/TotalBoat-Halcyon-Gloss-Marine-Varnish/dp/B07SD89LZF?th=1&psc=1 Pros:HARD CLEAR FINISH: The end finish is hard and smooth, and looks great.COLOR: The color...

I posted a project that turned into a kind of a review about Rubio Monocoat so I am just going to post that part of it here as a review. It comes in colors. I used Pure (clear). so the rubio do you like it,or shall i say will you use it again.been thinking of trying it,or some of the hard wax finishes many have been talking about. - pottz Yes, I like it. As you probably know, the other popular wax finish is Osmo which has a little more sheen to it and is more labor intensive. The Rubio...

Cheaper for a reason...

Cheaper for a reason...

12-26-2020 07:39 PM by awsum55 | 21 comments »

A story about GluBot. I bought a GluBot a few years ago and couldn’t live without it. It was worn out, it needed a new tip and the tether on the cap was gone. I also wanted another for convenience and to have one for Tightbond 1 and Tightbond 2. I shopped online and found some that were half the price, so I bought two new ones. When they arrived I was disappointed. The bottle was made of stiffer plastic (much harder to squeeze), the caps were hard plastic (not silicone) without a tethe...

My new favorite glue

My new favorite glue

02-06-2019 05:43 AM by JCD | 16 comments »

Ok. Maybe a review on glue isn’t the most thrilling, but after doing a couple rooms of custom window trim, building a kitchen peninsula with cabinets, and making some custom cabinet molding with corbels and cove molding, I’ve found a new best friend to companion my kreg jig and pin nailer. Found it at Menards (not carried at my Lowe’s) and have found what I believe is that perfect, thick (not runny), glue that dries fast (but not so fast I couldn’t get my clamps in place and adjusted). I h...

I just used this product on a glue up and it offers no “Slower speed of set”. Its speed of set is no slower than any other Titebond product. If you get 5 minutes your will be lucky.

A well done dedicated HVLP paint sprayer

A well done dedicated HVLP paint sprayer

10-07-2018 07:15 PM by Holbs | 2 comments »

There are many hand held HVLP sprayers out there to choose from. I keep an eye on auctions and I see way too many returns of the Wagner Flexio sprayers. Granted, for every 200 Flexio’s, surely 1 has a fault. All these hand held sprayers are plastic, after all. To change it up, I went with the Homeright Finish Max since I own the small/large Homeright spray shelters. Great shelters so wanted to give the sprayer a shot. At a respectful price tag, as well via Amazon.Right out of the ...

Gluboost vs CA for pen finishing

Gluboost vs CA for pen finishing

07-26-2018 06:36 PM by Andybb | 1 comment »

OK, I got my Gluboost trio the other day. In short, I like it a lot. First heard about Gluboost here, then read more about it here. Originally used by luthiers, there are a few youtube vids on the product. Sanded to 400-600 as usual. Then I used 2 coats of the thicker blue bottle of Fill n Finish with a spritz of accelerator in between, a quick wipe with .0000 steel wool, and repeat with 2-3 coats of the orange bottled thin formula and another light wipe of .0000, all with the lathe of...
