    Get a bottom feed gun, not a gravity feed. Also, get a pressure feed version not the suction version. It makes a difference to how resistant the tip is to dripping. Cheers

    I agree with John but if you are going to fill the area, an auto body filler is the best by far. To avoid the hard work of leveling, fill in 2 stages. Mostly fill it first and then skim coat to bring...

    2 pack polyurethane is the best for this. Stain using a solvent based dye, and straight on with the polyurethane. There is no need for a grain filler. 2 coats to build it, block it flat, apply...

    John has it pretty well covered. I think you may be worrying a bit too much about movement. A well seasoned piece of timber is not going to cycle that much for the rest of its life unless you leave...

    It matters. When a manufacturer gives you a set of recommendations, they are talking in the context their own products. Use a different stain and you will get a different result and risk having a...

    Marble tops were never attached on antiques in my experience.

    The sink clips you show will work fine. Roughen the area before epoxy fixing in place. Use a high viscosity product. Cheers

    Good idea if you have some spline. If not, use a screwdriver to punch 4 neat slots at the points of the compass in the base of the groove. This assists pouring and gets the lid back on tight with no...
