    Shellac is what is used to stop sap from oozing. If you are going to use a waterborne finish you better use a de-waxed shellac such as sealcoat. With standard shellac you can use lacquer or plain...

    Wipe it off with paint thinner or naphtha and see if the spot disappears with the exception of the indentation. If it does lay it with the scratch up and brush some waterlox on the scratch with a...

    I wouldn't recommend a turbine type sprayer. They are alright for spraying latex wall paint but come up short for spraying wood or vehicles. The turbine sprayers tend to splatter the paint where a...

    Then there is the issue of parking the big puffy truck at the box store which isn't truck friendly anyway. I think I get a new dent on my truck bumper every time I get lumber.

    If you haven't done it yet I would suggest using a different stain than Minwax. Minwax stains are prone to fade over time.

    A spar varnish is very water resistant however it is formulated for...

    Codes are just someone's opinion. You will find some of them that don't make any sense. It's also why every town has different codes. Lots of different opinions.

    The auto manufacturers are under a lot of pressure from the government to make them more fuel efficient. That translates to making them more aerodynamic. It's also why it's getting more and more...

    You don't need much. You might lay a level across both tables and see if they are coplanar. Personally I've never seen one that is not but it wouldn't hurt to check. From there just make sure each...

    Shellac is considered an interior finish so I wouldn't use that. If you are looking for a boat varnish you might consider Epifanes spar varnish. It literally is formulated to use for the deck of a...

    There is a lot of different finishes that would work well. The important thing is you don't use an oil based finish since it yellows as it ages. You could apply linseed oil or a natural stain to make...

    Newman makes some great machinery. I have their 24" planer. It's built like a tank.

    They don't seem to give any specifications on the miter gauge online. Looking at the picture it doesn't appear to be a standard 3/4" slot like the old saws. Anyway any sled I've ever made I just used...

    I don't believe the acrylic paint would adhere very well. To be on the safe side I would coat them with Sealcoat first.

    Keep in mind the primer isn't just on the surface, it's penetrated into the MDF and you would have sand deep enough to remove that before you could use any PVA glue. About the only adhesive you could...

    On anything that has multiple pieces of veneer I generally lay the veneer out on a table face up and tape the veneer together. That way it can be used as a single sheet.

    I know of the finish but have never used it. It's just easier for a person to apply it by hand than conventional varnishes. It's about the consistency of mayonnaise but what separates from regular...

    I don't think you can beat spraying the finish. If you use lacquer use a little retarder thinner to minimize orange peal in the pocket holes.
