    Thanks for all the feedback. I've changed the blade, tighthened up all the adjustment knobs so there's no play in the track, and made sure it's cutting at exactly 90 deg. I'm still getting the blade...

    Glue creep is real. Another possible reason for a raised glue line is if the wood dries/shrinks after the glue-up. Even though it may only shrink a few thousands of an inch in the thickness...

    I feel your pain, Patrick. I've been slogging through a quart of satin EV II and it just sucks compared to EV I. It's a totally different product. The only redeeming thing about it is its...

    Good catch. I should’ve mentioned… I had flipped the top over, so this picture is actually upside down. So the saw was actually traveling from the right side of the pic to the left side.
  5. Issue with blade marks with Makita track saw

    I have a Makita SP6000J track saw that's a few years old and has gotten quite a bit of use. I always use it with one of my Makita tracks. One thing I've never been able to figure out is why I get...

    Are you vacuuming off sanding dust before applying finish? This sounds more like that than dust settling on wet finish (unless you're actively blowing dust around the shop while finish is drying)....

    I feel like those bags are asking for trouble. Thin, flexible plastic is likely to be some of the least chemical resistant plastic. The finish will mess up the bag but the bag will also mess up the...

    Yeah that is a really long time to remain tacky. Minwax polyurethane or spar urethane will dry much faster than that. Itís cheap and readily available and will do the job just fine. Thinning it will...

    I’m wondering if one coat of some oil would bring a little life back and restore the color to that area. Lots of oil finishes out there…Odie’s oil, cutting board oil/mineral oil. You could feather it...

    Good info, Paul. I was so disappointed (and kinda freaked out) when I heard GF was replacing EV1 with EV2. I bought 15 gallons of EV1 and a bunch of quarts, different sheens, almost everything I...

    If you’re wanting to build a protective film you’re better off with a finish like a varnish that’s meant to be left on to dry and not wiped off like Maloof mix and oil/varnish mixtures. A varnish...

    Penofin is good stuff, so is General Finishes Outdoor Oil. But I’ve been moving away from solvent-based. Honestly, Odie’s Oil is pretty fantastic stuff. Non-toxic, smells good, looks good, and is...

    Thanks for the experiment, John. I'm very curious about the Enduro Var II. It's on the GF website and Rockler website but I haven't seen in the Rockler store yet. I'm bummed that it appears to be...

    Interesting. I'm 99% sure it's raised grain. That was freshly sanded (180g) white oak with High Performance straight on it with plenty of dry time between coats. I can't imagine what else it could...

    Two WB finishing questions

    I thought I'd piggyback on the recent WB/OB finish thread because I'm gradually making the transition to water-based finishes myself.

    The first question is about raised grain. When applying a WB...

    Minwax Antique Oil is an oil varnish blend and needs to be wiped off shortly after applying. Waterlox is a varnish and is meant to be left on the surface after applying since it will dry hard. If any...

    This seems like a perfect job for Waterlox. I've finished many vanities with it and it holds up great. The original sealer/finish goes on glossy but fades to semi-gloss, but they also make it in...

    I agree with John ^. I wouldn't offer advice because then she can blame you if it doesn't turn out well. Further, Polyshades is hands down the worst finishing product I've ever used. It will look...

    The rubbing out thing is such a pain and I never like the look. If it were me, I would sand smooth, do one more last coat of satin to get an even sheen, wait a week, then go over very lightly with...

    There isn't really any advantage to "rubbing it into" the wood. Just brush or wipe it on and it will penetrate on its own, especially since the wipe-on version is thinned considerably. I think their...
