    Beautiful table Mike. I can't imagine what you don't like about the finish; it looks great to me.

    Helmsman spar varnish is one of the ones in the not very good category. It won't last a year in direct 4 season weather exposure. Fortunately, you used it on a door so it lasts a little while...

    What specific finish are you using Brian? Most spar varnishes aren't really very good with direct sun exposure, and if your stain is at all dark the effect is magnified. Even the top end exterior...

    That was good stuff for sure. But you are underestimating how good pine still is for trim work. All of the trim on my 1961 built house is pine. I've replaced one short piece of fascia. A common...

    I have had no failures with PRG in my vacuum bag either. However, I have proven through unwanted failures with TB glues that you do need some level of pressure to get a good bond, specifically when...

    Millions of houses have been built with pine trim. My parents' house was built in 1927 and still has the original white pine trim on it. They keep it painted.

    Weldwood PRG recommends something like 250 psi for bonding. I'm likely wrong, but it's a really high number, far higher than you will get stacking some weight on top. It's also far higher than I...

    Yes, thanks for the updates. If the RH stays pretty constant then wood movement will be minimal. But the ridges you felt where the boards are joined does indicate some wood movement is happening. ...

    Following on what Glenn suggested, I would dye the raw wood first. You can adjust the color somewhat during this step by how much dye you apply to the light and darker areas. Then I'd seal it with...

    Is this anywhere near Elmira NY? I talked with a guy a couple of years ago who had a whole shop full of brand new Felder machines he wanted to sell due to health reasons. He was one difficult guy...

    I would glue the shelves to the faceframe, only. If you cut dados in the side runners and back cross pieces then the shelves will expand/contract as they want while still being supported.

    If it's going to get some sun outdoors, go to it with Epifanes, it's good stuff. But if it's going to be indoors with some sun exposure then there are better products to use than Epifanes. Epifanes...

    I use the 1/2" thread, 2" diameter ones on cabinets I build for a company that puts precision test machines on top of them. They are very robust, very well made, and easy to adjust. A potential...

    That's pretty common. The live edge craze has motivated a lot of people with no knowledge of wood to buy a sawmill in hopes of making easy money. There are at least two guys near me selling fresh...

    "The best resaw blade out there" may mean different things to different people. A 1" x 1.3 tpi Woodmaster CT on my 5 HP 17" bandsaw is a thing to behold in 12" stock, but there's no way it would...

    Maybe Bridge City or one of the other companies that offer over the top priced tools will produce some Invar measuring instruments. You heard it hear first.

    It looks like those areas drank up the finish more than anything. If so, you just need to spray more coats on those areas until the grain is filled, then sand flat and spray your final couple of...
