    Ah, I should have specified. All the shellac I use is dewaxed.
    Main concern I have is how long the strain will take to fully cure. But if I could sealcoat it then I would speed up the process.

    no worries. glad to support!

    Given the stench from it and not remembering the exact label I'm pretty sure it's oil based.

    I'm using a super blonde shellac for my other projects and I do have...

    I saw the option to switch to full mode but for the quick reply I didn't want to mess with it.

    I'm not sure of the wood make up for these platters. felt and smelled like Pine but they were included in the class so I don't know where they were bought from or any other details.
    I'll pick up...

    I'm in mid WI and we're sitting in the 10-20 degree mark, humidity should be quite low and on top of it I have a forced air furnace heating up my shop. So it should be quite dry overall.
    But in...

    Hoping for some saving words of wisdom. Wife and I had taken part in a wood burning class for fun, made two platters meant as serving trays. Not sure of the actual wood composition of the platters,...

    Thanks Jim!
    Some of the marks on the lid appear to be beneath the finish, almost like water marks. Aside from the pictures I hadn't looked it over in that much detail to say for sure. One of the...

    I like the butterfly idea. Could give that a try towards late summer and see how it looks. Wedding is the first weekend in December so I have quite a few months to see how much more they may...

    ah, yeah that wouldn't go too well on the food side.
    After seeing all the comments I may be leaning a bit more towards just leaving it if the two sides still feel decently sturdy. If all it's...

    Interesting
    so for the moment just put a finish on them and call it good assuming the slices don’t separate any further?

    Mixing sawdust and glue does sound familiar.
    Thanks for the reminder!

    filling in cracks in oak slices

    Hello,
    Hopefully a simple question. Had cut about 6 3" thick oak slices last year to be used as serving platters for my brother in law's wedding. Nothing terribly fancy, just milling them down to...

    The current pine casing and baseboard were something I had to throw together last minute before I deployed. Was only in the house a few months before getting orders to ship out, so I tried to make it...

    I see what both of you are referring to but I think my scenario needs a picture.

    In this picture it’s the current door and frame (obviously!). The replacement would be a pre hung 6 panel....

    The hallway already has stained baseboard and trim, so the aim is to keep it stained, just replaced with a different style.
  19. painted trim transition from room to stained hallway

    I've been tossing this issue around in my head for a while now as the first floor projects are commencing. I started work on our upstairs bedroom with stained and finished jamb extensions, casing...

    nope. wasn't going to touch that one.
    Think I have a 3450rpm 110v motor that may have worked to swap, but once I saw the specs I figured it would probably be a downgrade in quality.

    Here is a pic of the motor plate:
    408479

    Appears decently beefy. Maybe it was replaced way back when from a 110v unit.
    Either way, I have the wiring to my garage ready, just have to swap the...

    Yes there is a plate on the motor. I can take a look at that in the morning.
    I did think it was a bit odd for a 220v motor to be on this but figured it might be one of the unique models that are...

    Yes the earlex unit is my only setup at the moment. All of my projects have been stains and WB topcoats, so easily handled through the 5500.
    The 5500 comes with a 2.0 needle but you can go up to a...

    Side question:
    the compressor I recently got ahold of is either a late 70’s or early 80’s Campbell Hausfeld 20 gallon unit. Only model number i can see listed is VT-3311-01 but I can’t find much...

    A master has spoken!
