    Seems you've never used RM, Jeff, or you'd know why some of us use syringes. RM costs around $55 for a 350 ml can with catalyst. While expensive, those two little cans will cover approx. 400 sf,...

    I haven't noticed the paper towels I've used to wipe off RM getting even slightly warm. I lay them out flat to dry/cure, then throw them in the trash. I do notice that if I have a few ml left over...

    Well that was interesting. Under the conditions he did his testing Advance was very durable, and Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel sucked. However, all of his testing began only after he covered the...

    I'm not sure yet, Fred. I air dry lumber before putting it in the kiln. My guess is that it will dry like yellow poplar or pine, meaning quickly and without much problem. I suspect even the 8/4...

    You are the first person I've ever seen that said Advance dries super fast. I guess if you put it on thin enough it will do as you observed, but it sure won't if you spray on 3 - 5 mils. It will...

    First Time Milling Basswood

    A month or so ago my arborist friend asked if I wanted a 20" white oak tree. "Of course, thanks very much." When I got to the jobsite and he started cutting it, it was clear the white oak was...

    If you are going to roll it on then precat is out. Advance rolls on great but takes far too long to dry and cure, especially if you plan to live in there at the same time. Emerald Urethane Trim...

    White ash would be my choice, too. Steam bend to whatever shape is needed, then spiral wrap it with epoxy and fiberglass or carbon fiber, with an extra wrap around the area where the hardware goes. ...

    I've used GF's Extender with several manufacturer's WB topcoats w/o issue. If you want to roll your own, Extender is 1/3 propylene glycol and 2/3 water.

    Another option is to add some of GF's Extender to what you have. 5% or so will extend the open time so it has longer to flow out.

    Same here, I use a piece of silicone rubber sheet. It's 1/8" thick and has about 20% compression at 15 psi, IIRC, which gives you quite a lot of compliance to deal with veneer thickness differences....

    Build one and find out. It's not an expensive risk. Personally, if you start with flat stock and have a flat reference surface I think they will come out fine.

    Same here; my supplier said they would not get many more shipments. Their current price is $105 for a 3/4", 5 x 5 sheet. He said their major customer is looking at Eucalyptus plywood as an...

    Enduro Clear Poly is pretty durable. Brief exposure to Windex or 409 won't hurt it. The testing I did was 1 hour exposure if I remember correctly. It was done to see how finishes responded to...

    My opinion is the repairs can only be done properly if the sashes are taken out. Trying to do it in place risks breaking the glass and that's a deal breaker for me. Screw up your courage and tell...

    Glazing putty works well but don't use the orange/red stuff, use gray or white, or it will show through the next coat of primer.

    I have no experience with SW's Water White CV, or any solvent based finish, sorry. GF's Enduro Clear Poly is resistant to short term exposure to most chemicals and cleaners. Like many waterbornes,...

    IMHO 1.25" is plenty thick for a tabletop. You will (should) have an understructure to support the top so it's not going to sag. So, no, I would not rip and glue that beautiful old wood and make a...

    I agree with Prashun. Your inspiration photo looks like those cabinets were done with a matte or flat waterborne finish. I have used General Finishes Enduro Clear Poly in Flat sheen and it looks...

    I use a Bosch ROS65VC, not a dual mode machine. I have both the 6" and 5" pads for it. I use the 6" pad 95% of the time because it works faster and feels more stable, but some sanding media only...

    ^^^ 100 times. No frame and panel exterior door manufacturer I've ever seen relies on cope and stick only. They all use some form of M&T or dowels. As do I. I cannot imagine a cope and stick...

    What separates a good woodworker from one who's not? A good woodworker can fix their mistakes so no one else knows.

    Love that Sapele, too.
