    I've used lightweight joint compound several times and it seems to work fine. Just smear it on with your finger or flexible plastic spatula, let dry, then sand. Inspect, repeat where needed.

    Prashun, Clear Poly also comes in flat, in case you were unaware of that. Clear Poly in flat (or maybe they call it matte) looks like no finish on many woods. Also, you can buy flatters from Hood...

    Finished my Solar Lumber Drier Today

    Now that I own a bandsaw lumber mill I need to be able to dry wood a lot more efficiently and hopefully with better control than air drying it in stacks. So I built a solar lumber drier. The design...

    Either way works, but the nail holes will be less visible if you install the trim after the first coat of finish and apply the last coat once it's up. It will level just as well on a vertical as a...

    Both are very durable, but I'd give the edge to Arm-R-Seal for resistance to hot dishes and liquids left on it. That said, I'd much rather spray EnduroVar on a dining room table than try to spread...

    I've been retired for 10 years and average 30 - 40 hours per week in woodworking related activities. In the Winter it's all in my shop. The rest of the year it could be in my shop or it could be...

    I read Ruhlman's quote to mean furniture, et al, in his reference to fashion. In that context I think it's as true today as it was when he said it. People pay ridiculous amounts of money (to me,...

    Interior doors usually present a lot fewer problems. However, I saw one at a millwork shop no less this past Winter where the lower, solid wood, full width panel was bowed so badly that it popped...

    Just for reference and to expand your trivia knowledge, it has never been 100F in Buffalo, NY. A hot Summer here is one that breaks 90F for more three or four days. Summer around the Great Lakes is...

    As far as I know, BIN uses dewaxed shellac. I have used it under pigmented WB products for more than 10 years and never, ever had a bonding problem, including Duralaq and ProClassic.

    I assume you are talking about passage doors, not cabinet doors. I've made exterior house doors both ways, and other ways, too. You will find some who argue all doors should only ever be made with...

    Zinsser BIN white pigmented shellac primer would be a better choice, IMO. It has a viscosity of only about 30 sec. through a #4 Ford cup and you should have no trouble spraying it with the 1.5 mm...

    20 ml is 20 grams for water; probably close to that for Mixol, too.

    I've shown this here before. You can make your own tension meter for the cost of a dial indicator, some scraps of wood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. I found this basic design on YouTube.

    Mike, a few months ago another Creeker measured the tension on his brand new FB510. He could barely get to 25 K psi with a 1" blade on it; IIRC, the spring was just about fully compressed to do it. ...

    Next time make sample boards, start to finish. Those would have told you that it would turn orange, and whether or not it eventually goes back to pink. Now all you can do is hope it does.

    If you want a 20" I'd go with the MM20, or whatever it's now called. If you want something closer to 16" I would get the 17" Grizzly G0636X. In fact, that's exactly what I bought three years ago...

    I mix it with sawdust and then throw in on my mulch pile, so it's pretty much the same as what Brice said.

    I think you just have to pull harder. IIRC there is no locking device. Pull them straight apart, w/o twisting, wtc.
