Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners

Well, all my pen blank sets have their CA finish and are ready for assembly.To prove I actually do work on the lathe, I made a little video of the process. It is edited to shorten the boredom and the audio is natural. The video shows the process I used to apply the CA and boiled linseed oil finish. A couple of things about the operation. We had considered using a wax finish on these blanks. We found the wood is so soft that just the pressure of applying the Hut PPP wax dented the blank. Even…See More

From Outhouse To Indoor Plumbing- The Bathroom Remodel Part 2

Painting was first. Ceiling and walls. The wall paint was something I had never used. Sand mixed with the paint. It turned out better than I pictured it in my mind when I started. Mimi even got some glitter stuff to mix in with it. I know I rolled my eyes, too. But as always, her tastes are spot on. Everyone who has seen the paint raves over how nice it looks.Once I was done painting, the floor was next. Several years ago, I put down a sheet vinyl floor. This time she opted for vinyl 12” x 12”…See More
