    The box stores normally carry a cheap 1/4" plywood called underlayment for that purpose. Saves a lot of work cleaning the old floor too. Some people use a wood or metal transition strip to cover the...

    I don't use the OSMO finish either. I looked it up and it's a mixture of oils and wax. It also contains vegetable oil. These ingredients makes it incompatible with polyurethane. You could have used...

    No deeper than it is I would be inclined to sand it with a belt sander rather than having a fill on a table top. I quit using sawdust and glue for wood putty more than 45 years ago. Anything you mix...

    Is there a place in your shop you could pour some level quick? Another option would be to pour a small pad of concrete just outside your shop. If the legs are large enough you could also install leg...

    I wonder if there is anything re-enforcing the back. Unless there is a fairly large dowel running through the back it would break off because it's all cross grain. Looks good though even if it can't...

    You might use some brass lacquer on the numbers if it is raw brass. Nothing will adhere very well to the Corian. If you roughened it a little an automotive urethane clear coat would stick for a...

    Sometimes the GFCI and AFCI breakers don't do well with electric motors, especially something like an air compressor that draws a lot at startup. It won't hurt anything except perhaps many trips to...

    I used poly on a work bench and I didn't like it. Paint and other finishing products seem to stick to it easily. Benches I've finished with oils or wax seem to be more resistant to finishing products...

    You are right, the tops on a Northfield jointer are dovetailed into the brackets that adjust the height. They are not adjustable but the head is. It could be loosened and shimmed. Now, is the two...

    It looks like there is a block of wood with 8 sides in the middle of it and the legs just have a plain butt joint with screws in it. The screws look to be countersunk with round top hole plugs...

    About all you can do with a plane is set to cut very light and run the plane in a diagonal direction so it's more slicing the knot than a direct cut. If it were me I would sneak in a belt sander when...

    Something doesn't sound right. Either the powerfeed wheels have gotten hard or you didn't have sufficient pressure on them. You could have bogged down the shaper but it shouldn't have allowed a board...

    I wouldn't alter the pulleys on the compressor. The larger you increase the pulley on the motor the more stress you put on the motor. Then it's designed to run at a certain RPM and if you put a...

    You could use a sealer if you wanted to but not standard shellac. Standard shellac has a natural wax which is incompatible with waterborne finishes. You could use a de-waxed shellac such as sealcoat...

    Primer has a lot more solids in it than paint so it will build a thickness quicker. It also is easier to sand between coats which makes the substrate smoother for the paint.

    A yard of cement is literally a block of concrete 3'x3'x3'. At 4" thick you could get 9- 3'x3' sections of floor or 81 square feet. At 6" you could get 54 square feet. Unless your soil is very soft...

    Polyurethane has a slight yellow cast to it when you apply it and continues to yellow as it ages. This would look bad on the white. You would probably be better off using some rattle can clear...

    If it were me I would tint a gray primer as near black as I could and level the finish with that and then spray it with an oil based satin black paint. You would probably have to go to a real paint...

    I think you would get a better quality finish by brushing it. Rattle can paint dries so fast it's difficult not to get lap marks. If you use an oil based enamel the quality of the finish alone is...

    The blo won't alter the color very much but the garnet shellac certainly would. That white sapwood would end up looking pink. The waterlox finish would do more in not altering the color of the wood....

    I don't believe I would use the lamp oil. Any I've seen was primarily kerosene. The MSDS on both products is not very clear what they are though. A finishing oil in normally a hardening oil such as...

    It's fahrenheit for me. I'm near Dallas TX so it doesn't get that cold very often.

    The auto drain isn't going to do anything that you couldn't do yourself. The tank would still need to be tilted to where the drain hole is. Is the compressor oilless? you could just prop it over to...

    An air compressor draws a lot of power at startup. If you are a long distance from the breaker it draws even more. Also if your shop is cold it makes it all the harder to start. I have a large...
