    Thanks Prashun. Well you and Jim and others I can't remember have spoken highly of the EM-8000CV; I'm going to have to try it. My only experience so far with TC's products was not good so I've been...

    Beautiful table with a beautiful finish, Prashun. Is is black or English walnut? The first photo looks like black walnut; the others more like English walnut.

    White pine would be a good choice, IMO, especially if you use epoxy sealer before painting: http://www.smithandcompany.org/

    I can sell pretty much anything with at least one live edge on it, as long as it's KD and planed flat. The more character the better. Stuff woodworkers would throw in the woodstove suddenly has...

    No personal experience with that mill, but I know it's a well respected brand and model. $12K for an LT40 with full hydraulics is a smoking good deal unless it's been run into the ground. A mill...

    I had two cans of Zinnser shellac leak before I got wise. Now I either set the can in a plastic pail or pour it into Mason jars.

    Lacquer thinner dissolves shellac, too.

    That's an Insl-X product. The TDS sheet says the viscosity is 90 - 95 KU, which is somewhere around 400 - 500 seconds #4 Ford cup and that's in the range of BM Advance and SW ProClassic; definitely...

    Another vote for the Woodmaster CT 1" x 1.3 tpi. Alternatively, the 3/4" x 2 tpi is a little more versatile and easier to tension.

    Your Earlex will spray most clearcoats very well. I would stick with that and follow Tom's advise with regards to latex.

    I consider bathroom cabinetry the same as kitchen cabinets, so I use KCMA rated finishes for both. So far that has been a winning strategy. FWIW, most bathrooms these days have fans. Those that...

    I would glue the broken piece back on. I'd use Bondo to fill in the cracks and any missing pieces then carve/sand it to fit. And then I'd paint the base.

    As John said, a longer deck makes loading logs easier. Woodland Mills offers an extension to give about a 16' 6" capacity on the trailer package, and probably unlimited capacity for a ground unit. I...

    Yes, MegaVar can be tinted to a solid color, just as the Duralaq WB clear can be. At least that's what the BM guy told me when I asked and he's never been wrong yet. However, it likely won't have...

    I don't see any film on the specimen in your photo. Is that one that you finished? If so, your coats must be way too thin because 6 coats of Varathane should give you a very substantial film if...

    Switching horses is almost never a good idea. I would stick with the Minwax gloss and wipe on more coats. However, now that you are in mid stream I think you are going to have to back up and sand...

    Dyes are the way to go. But they aren't the perfect solution either if you are applying it by hand. Excess dye will soak into the thirsty areas more and result in blotching just like using stain. ...

    Paint thinner as in mineral spirits or as in lacquer thinner? If you used lacquer thinner it should be fine, but not if you used mineral spirits.

    You can use Sealcoat, applied properly, under...

    Rob, your concerns are valid with Duralaq WB with regards to chemical resistance. Ammonia cleaners don't play nice with it. I was in the same quandary with my kitchen cabinets a year ago. After...

    It is amazing how the viscosity can be so low for something with so much filler in it. Good chemistry at work. And the price is a true bargain. I haven't checked the SDS in quite some time, but I...

    Interesting stuff about llamas, John. I had no clue they had fighting teeth. I'll keep my distance if I meet one in the wilds of South America, if I ever get there. Still on my bucket list.

    Welcome to SMC, Joe.

    Are you sure the finish is soft and it's not just the walnut underneath? Walnut is not very hard. If it is indeed the finish that's soft my guess is the finish was old or...
