    Interesting stuff Jeff. The biggest problem I've had with WB finishes was with EM-9300 on white oak. If would not coat over the pores, no matter what I did including following all the...

    IMO it is a huge mistake to use a miter saw, RAS, whatever saw to break down rough stock if you also plan to use it for precision work. The odds are high that a piece of wood that has some warp will...

    You weren't the first, Rich, and you won't be the last. A RAS does more, better, than any miter saw ever will. If you don't need portability, and have the space, a Dewalt GWI or larger might be...

    Sure, wiping stains can be intermixed to adjust the color just like dyes. You can layer them, too, if you seal each coat or let it dry really well. Gel stain over a wiping stain is a pretty common...

    Standard Gorilla Glue does give a hard cure, just like Plastic Resin Glue and Unibond 800. It would be a good choice for your application with a snug fitting dowel or other patch. Epoxy would work...

    Those look like they were sprayed with straight lacquer or maybe a toner coat first and then clearcoat. I once matched some red oak cabinets with an aged lacquer finish by doing nothing more than...

    If it actually went through the dishwasher it's no wonder some glue joints opened up TB III has really poor performance at 140 F. Add some stress from water swelling the wood followed by heated...

    Thanks very much for the kind words, Ed. The color variation in the door is influenced by the ambient light, angle of viewing, and sun angle. Even in the first photo, when it was first installed,...

    Brian, please post some photos of the cabinets you need to match. Matching color, grain, depth, and sheen can be pretty straight forward or far from it, and the process to do so can vary widely. ...

    It's never a good idea to store wood outdoors but if you have no alternative then that's the way it must be. If you keep a good roof over it with enough overhang to keep rain from easily wetting the...

    For hobby use my 18V 6-1/4" Milwaukee is the saw I reach for first. I built my shed, solar drier, and a bunch of other stuff using it almost exclusively. A couple of batteries usually are enough to...

    Ouch, sorry to hear that. With some French doors I made I installed the glass while the doors were still in my shop to make fitting and installing the molding easier. I transported the doors to the...

    That's been my take so far, too, Joe; not hard enough for doors although it seems just as hard as the Douglas fir I've seen lately. Sure great to work with though.
