    It's interesting that vendors and many people don't seem to equate "flat bottomed cut" with "bat-ears". As far as I'm concerned, if there are bat-ears, then regardless of the rest of the cut quality,...

    So in summary it seams that.....assuming I stick with a table saw blade.....

    If I want perfectly flat bottomed box joints with no bat-ears, and can live with smaller than 3/8" width I have to go...

    Todd,
    I'm a big fan of restoring and reusing old tools, especially since (I think) they were made better back when. If you're patient and up for it, Delta Rockwell bandsaws from the 1950's appear on...

    Try some penetrating oil and let it soak in for 10 minutes or so. Then wipe the head clean with alcohol or mineral spirits so the screwdriver won't slip. I've had very good luck with unmovable screws...

    Jim, I actually havenít purchased one yet, I was noticing that Freud claims flat bottoms on both the box joint and the super dado. So if they both did flat bottoms, it seemed silly to buy the limited...

    Flat bottomed Blade differences?

    I'm working on some box joints of various widths and looking to purchase an appropriate table saw blade. Freud seems to offer a variety of well-respected blades at decent prices. However, I'm a bit...

    Simulating walnut sapwood?

    I have a quantity of nice walnut that is nearly entirely heartwood. It seems that most woodworkers desire this even, darker wood for finishing. I, however, like the nice contrast of a streak of...

    Videos that I have seen seem to show a lower viscosity than most epoxies....but I can't seem to find Z-poxy in larger quantities (gallon) for a large tabletop. Smooth-on has an epoxy that I am...
  10. Thank you, Jim. I'll look into it!

    Thank you, Jim. I'll look into it!
  11. Hi Jim. I have dyed black oak with white...

    Hi Jim. I have dyed black oak with white grainfiller. Took a lot of chemistry experiments to get the grainfiller to be ONLY in the major grain and NOT graying the black surface of the wood. In...
  12. Pourable topcoats (that are not epoxy)

    Assuming for discussion's sake that a surface cannot be disturbed by brushing, wiping or spraying, can water-based topcoats (such as General Finishes) be thinned & poured and left to dry? I've used...
  13. Hello Tom, thanks for replying. No, I have not...

    Hello Tom, thanks for replying.

    No, I have not found a solution with which I am happy. I have tried just about everything suggested. I have been extremely picky as to keeping the "sharpness of...

    Thanks for replying, John.
    I suppose the bleeding may not be noticable if all you are doing is spraying shellac onto the dyed wood, as it may not "draw" the dye up to the top of the newly added...
  15. Steve, If I understand what you are suggesting,...

    Steve,
    If I understand what you are suggesting, basically I should try a varnish as my seal coat after dying, and again I assume, after grainfilling and before topcoating. I've never used varnish...

    Hi Wayne,
    I did some light planing and a little scraping with newly sharpened tooling before the sanding, so I'm pretty certain I have nice sharp edges along the top of the surface, plus the fact...

    Thanks for the tip, Bob, but mixing with the shellac is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. Thanks, though, might make a good alternative to the Mixol tints if I run out!

    I have a finishing problem that I am trying to solve. I've done a lot of woodworking but not a lot of finishing so I've been experimenting with various methods and documenting my progress as I learn....
