    Whether it is or isn't, anything that fills the pores will change the appearance of the finish put on top. I think that's the issue you are dealing with.

    On future projects it might be helpful...

    I haven't had that problem with Unibond 800. I don't use a power mixer, but I mix thoroughly, let it sit for 5 - 10 minutes, then remix again. Oh yeah, I only use shop sawn veneer so maybe that...

    It's not my design; I copied it from one I saw on YouTube I think. I'm sure it wasn't his idea either. People have been measuring strain in materials that way for probably more than a hundred years....

    RM's literature says it works by bonding with the wood fibers. How is that going to happen if the wood has already been finished with another product, or even with Rubio?

    I've used RM and...

    If I were going to rehab it, I'd remove the veneer and replace it, on the existing structure, then build matching leaves if needed. It's likely old enough that the glue is hot hide glue on solid...

    I think most of the responses have been from hobbiests, like myself. It just depends upon what you want to do as to which CNC you should buy. I wanted to be able to cut nearly any part I would need...

    Well done Brian. I'd give that lady a Starbucks drink certificate, or some other thank you, for her assistance. I might have tried adding a few drops of green dye to the amber to move the color...

    Just today I made some brass washers to repair a piece of machinery. No one would have them locally and I didn't want to wait even on Amazon. I had the 4 I needed after 10 minutes to create the...

    Melamine has been used for millions of kitchens. It is hard, flat, and durable against things like cans, etc. Plywood is a distant second measured against those criteria. Formica is overkill. I...

    Like some others above, I recently bought a OneFinity Journeyman. All in for about $4200. As others have said, it is a very rigid machine with a 48" wide X-axis, by 32", or any length if you use...

    The key to applying any OB film finish is to apply all the coats so that they behave like a single coat. To do that you cannot wait until the prior coat is cured. You have to apply each coat after...

    I'd never seen that stuff before, Jim. It might be a possibility. Not as many layers as I'd prefer, but as long as it's flat it should work. Thanks.

    Thanks for the feedback. Not interested in MDO or its derivatives as it's not consistent enough in thickness and is an unappealing brown. I want to use this stuff as the show surface. Woodcraft...

    That's why the lower end shooting board is priced at $175 including shipping. It's less expensive than any commercial offering I know of and does much more, 90 deg, 45 deg, and anything in between,...

    If you want thin finish then I would look at hardwax oils made for that application. Lobadur comes to mind, but there are others.

    It's hard to beat the durability and ease of application of the Bona HD Traffic system, which would include using their stain. I'd save the spraying for another project.

    You can go as fine as you want, certainly up to 325 or 400 grit, but there's no benefit going beyond where the scratches disappear. I would think they should be gone after 220 grit if you've done a...
