    I can't answer for Glenn but I've done the same. Shellac sealed the edges but it took multiple coats. Just kept at it until it looked right.

    This. Use the BIN primer, not the enamel/latex version.

    I can spray it with a 1.3mm in a 4-stage HVLP turbine. Prior to purchasing that, I had (still have as a backup) the single stage HVLP...

    Anybody use the paint/roll-on stuff from Rust-Oleum or Krylon?

    Leaning more to the Rust-Oleum brand because that comes in both black and green. But I may be over-ruled and the green thrown out...

    And that's why some plant stands have marble tops. I could see doing a "modern" take on the Victorian designs using Corian scraps.

    Not terrifically difficult but you do have the grain going at least 4 ways as you work around a circle (unless it was glued up from wedges). And it helps to have the right fence attached to a #66....

    The #66 *is* a scraper so it works exactly like a scraper. Try going around a curve with a combination plane some time. Or using the combination plane as an emergency backup small router plane.

    You can use the auger bits intended for power drills that have only one or two rotations of the flute. They work but don't eject chips well from deep holes. And some of them only have one...

    This is quite possible. I've noticed that when I use the flash on my DLSR, it seems to "penetrate" the finish a bit and things show up that I can't otherwise see under various combinations of room...

    Did this when helping a friend with a bunch of baseboard and trim moldings. Worked very well. Did something similar on some small cove molding by just carving a block from some pink insulation foam.

    To that I would add, cover the vessel so that you don't get evaporation. As long as the metal parts are fully submerged, hanging around for more than 12 hours isn't going to be a problem.

    Do you have some issues with nephropathy and can't feel pressure/scraping on your fingertips? If that is the case, seek medical attention to find out WHY this is the case and resolve that issue.
