  1. Penny Table

    I took a trashed wine table and turned it into a beautiful piece of furniture that is sure to be valued as a family heirloom. A little bit of finish work, pennies, and glazing does the trick. Years ago I acquired this table from my grandmother. At one time it had a leather top. My first...
  2. Hoosier Cabinet Reproduction

    One of the local Mennonites in my area that owns a furniture store referred a man to me to build a custom cabinet. The man told me that he had the top portion of an old Hoosier cabinet that he wanted me to salvage and build a new base cabinet for. I thought it was going to be a simple project...
  3. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    A few years ago I purchased a Rigid Jointer out of the box, set it up and used it with marginal success and went on to other more pressing projects. Over the years had occasion to use a few times but it didn't seem to do what I had anticipated it should do and on more than one occasion went...
  4. Woodworking Skill Share
    Perhaps the learned teams perusing these forums can help me with this question. In November 2018, I had 8 doors dip-stripped. Some had paint only; others had paint over shellac. On one that was paint-only, very nice 110-y-o Douglas fir, my wood putty is leaving a black stain behind as I sand...

    I have a small antique business and often must refinish pieces. I am self taught and have gotten pretty good over the years repairing small veneer chips and removing scratches and fading from vintage furniture. My current problem is a rosewood desk that has an unknown stain I have not been able...
  6. Finishing
    I need to refinish an oak bowl that is coated in polyurethane. I tested a spare piece of oak with Citristrip, but it discolored the oak, darkening it with a dull brown-gray shade. Can anyone recommend a stripper that won't effect the oak's color or am I just stuck sanding the poly off? Thanks, -Matt

    Not a Box . . . This was my project for the last winter and learned many new skills. Soon, she will be in my livingroom for five days where I can apply the last coats of varnish, (and sill use the shop for fall projects). Bending the strips into the wine glass stem shaped stern was the source...
  8. Finishing
    Through my own experience (front door tray) and now a customer of mine I have recently put together the theory that Glade Scented Oil Plug Ins do a far cleaner, quicker job at stripping very thick clear coats (I am assuming a spray poly of some type) plus whatever stain was applied before the...
