    Where are you buying methylene chloride stripper these days? It was banned a year or more ago. In any case, I've never had problems with wax contamination from stripper. You have to neutralize the...

    Hope it helps, Paul. Being an oil modified product, I'm sure you are right that Emerald will take several weeks to fully cure, much longer than ProClassic at about 7 days, but likely better than...

    SW's Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel

    I like the durability of BM's Advance but hate how long it takes to dry and cure. Last week I got a job to refinish some kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts. I was thinking of using SW's...

    Dye will likely give you brighter colors while still letting the grain show. But getting deep colors like in those samples is going to take a fair amount of dye which might make up the difference to...

    You don't need a lot of power; what you need is good insulation around the wood. A 1.5 KW heater would be more than enough if you put R13 insulation on all 6 six faces of a box. If the box is 3 x 3...

    If that area in photo #1 is from glue or some other contamination under the finish, shellac on top isn't going to fix it.

    No, I made that. It's a standard 3000 lb 6 x 10 ft trailer from Tractor Supply. I built the arch using YouTube videos for reference. It's 6 ft tall in the center. It's held in base brackets with...

    The first photo in your latest post looks like there is some sort of contamination, like maybe glue, that is preventing the finish from getting down into the grain of the wood. If that's the case,...

    Wow, gorgeous. I, too, am not a huge fan of the live edge look but I appreciate beautiful wood and that definitely is.

    That is one impressive router sled you have there.

    Got a photo of what it looks like now? If it's dull in some spots but glossy in others, and that applies to the areas you did not repair, I'd guess it's because the micromesh was bridging and only...

    Alaskan Milling

    I've had an Alaskan Mill for over 15 years and have milled several thousand board feet with it. It's a younger man's game, though, and was one reason I bought a bandsaw mill last year. I even...

    I would switch to an alcohol based dye. That dries plenty fast enough but you can slow the drying time by adding water to it. Or go to a water based dye and get even longer working time. If you...

    No personal experience with that mill, but I know it's a well respected brand and model. $12K for an LT40 with full hydraulics is a smoking good deal unless it's been run into the ground. A mill...

    I had two cans of Zinnser shellac leak before I got wise. Now I either set the can in a plastic pail or pour it into Mason jars.

    Lacquer thinner dissolves shellac, too.

    That's an Insl-X product. The TDS sheet says the viscosity is 90 - 95 KU, which is somewhere around 400 - 500 seconds #4 Ford cup and that's in the range of BM Advance and SW ProClassic; definitely...

    Another vote for the Woodmaster CT 1" x 1.3 tpi. Alternatively, the 3/4" x 2 tpi is a little more versatile and easier to tension.
