    That looks very nice, Phil. I'm interested how it fares, too. African mahogany is a good choice.

    I often spray a coat of Sealcoat shellac then 2 or 3 coats of waterborne finish. The shellac prevents grain raise and 2 or 3 coats of WB gives a beautiful finish. I use mostly GF'S products but...

    Mike, you are entitled to your opinion, but to say that Unibond 800 is very toxic stuff far exceeds the actual hazard. Many of the products we use have risks. Following the manufacturer's PPE...

    Sort of surprising TB III failed considering the ends of the laminations are tied together around the handle. There should be almost no stress on them.

    True, but if you look at the literature for PRG you'll see that 1800 lbs/sq ft is not even close to what's needed for that product. That said, it does work ok in a vacuum bag as long as you apply at...

    If its a non drying oil I would wipe it with the appropriate solvent until it looks as clean as possible. This might take several wipings using lots of fresh rags. Then sand it really well, or hand...
