    I use Watco DO quite often, but avoid the tinted versions. I find the suspended pigment solids always give me uneven results. If I'm going to stain the wood, I use stain or dye. All that said, I...

    Yup, looks like it’s been sharpened or retoothed a few times. I’ve seen these before. Sometimes the etching is touching the teeth. They work great as panel saws. Just cut the length back and rework...

    This takes me back. I grew up on a hobby farm with all manner of critters. Newborn foals are very cute. Calves are fun too. My favorite were the Nubian Goat kids. They love to play when they're small.
