    Sorry to not be clear - I have an oak piece inlaid with thin birch stringing and inlays. I'm trying to protect the birch from taking on oak stains.

    I'm trying to figure out how to stain inlaid QS white oak without discoloring the inlay. Found a FWW article that suggests coating inlays with shellac with a very fine brush; tried it - very slow...

    Aprons

    I see a lot of people wearing these heavy-duty aprons on various youtube, FWW, etc things. Do folks here where them, and to what benefit? I can't figure out why I'd want to put one on, but maybe...

    I guess I now have two questions: Is there some way, (say if I cut off an inch off one end) to find out if the plank has residual stresses? and 2, Is it possible that a KD plank that sat in the humid...
  8. Assessing stresses prior to resawing

    I just resawed a (QS oak) plank that popped out like a clamshell and actually split the last couple inches of the plank. Now there is about an inch of space in the middle between the two resawn...

    FWIW, I used 'antique cherry aniline water stain' from LV under a Minwax #224 walnut stain. Very disappointed how quickly the pieces lost the reddish hue from the 'aniline' dye.
  11. Lightfast alternative to aniline dyes?

    Finished some QS oak with a (FWW-described) aniline dye/oil stain combo and was surprised how fast the dye faded after a year of use on pieces exposed to (indirect) light. One could almost deduce how...

    I'm replacing a set of ~40 yr old white pine barn doors; the bottom foot or so has softened/rotted out. Using woods other than white pine is not a option. I'm wondering if i can improve rot...

    Thanks folks. I put the blades in a (metal) vise, slipped a pipe over the handles, and they straightened right out. Hopefully I didn't weaken the metal much.

    Straightening chisels

    I found a set of Sorby mortise chisels at a yardsale. A few narrower ones seem to be slightly bent - perhaps a 5 degree angle between the blade and handle. I assume it was from overenthusiastic...
