    I have no finishing experience except what I'm working on right now. So as to staining wood. Does/should the wood get darker with more coats? Using Minwax to match a piece of flooring to existing hardwood flooring. Took sample pieces to the store and got a couple of small cans that matched...

    All, Do you have an opinion on the best way to even out the color of cherry boards from different sources? I started a project, and I using my left over cherry from three different sources. Of course they are differently colored and some boards have a bit of sapwood present. Is dying or...

As shown by the sketch, the 1st rip cut is made and the whole thing is flipped with the cut off piece reattached using double stick tape and then the 2nd rip cut is made resulting in a triangular...

    I am restoring an old butcher block kitchen island for a customer and was asked if I could stain the piece to make it darker. I would like to keep it safe for food prep. Is there a food contact safe stain out there? I was thinking about soaking some coffee grounds in some mineral oil and making...
  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So, my first project is going to be a potting bench for my wife, which will live over the summer on our deck, which faces east. Obviously, I plan to make it out of cedar. My primary questions are: (1) Does the cedar need to acclimate? For how long? I read that wood should acclimate for...
