    Thanks Dan. You're in a better situation than me it seems. No local retail outlet carries ML Campbell; only commercial outlets. When I've looked into buying it on line it's been the same deal. ...

    All the info. points to a problem with the wood before it was shipped to you. Surface checks, in particular, are a sign of drying too fast in the initial stages. Maybe as has been suggested it...

    Ha, I now realize that I thought your drop cloth or spray booth curtain was part of the workpiece. It's hard to see very well, but what I think is your workpiece looks like the BIN dried before it...

    Oak is never going to look like walnut, nor the other way around. You can get the colors to match, but the grains won't. If it were me, I'd ebonize the bases with India ink and then clear coat...

    The only way I know how to match colors is trial and error. This could also be a multi step process, not just dye. When you look at those first 3 pictures you see the dark brown color in the grain,...

    What is it you are painting? No, that's not orange peel, but it sure is nasty looking.

    I don't think staining it before applying Cetol would be a good idea. I think Cetol is meant to be applied directly to the raw wood. I would try the Mahogany on some scrap of the same type wood to...

    Non yellowing is an interesting requirement considering the Minwax OB poly you now use will yellow. Assuming that is OK then you might want to try Minwax's WB Oil Modified Poly: ...

    I use the painting pyramids most of the time. I set them on a panel that is smaller than my workpiece so that the overspray doesn't rebound back up to the underside of the piece. The problem with...

    OK, northern NJ is pretty much the same as where I am in western NY, maybe even more humid. My shop runs 30% or less in the Winter, too, so I run a humidifier to keep it at 35% or higher. For my...

    Kilz is lousy stuff in my experience. Surprising it peeled off though, but that makes me wonder how thick you applied it. Paint primers are meant to seal the wood and help give you a smooth surface...
