Smallpatch posted a topic in Wood TurnersI used a glaze made by Star Chemical Co. Raw Sienna thinned down turned out to be real close.. This was what I thought I was best at of all the wood working and related chores associated with wood....matching shades of old furniture people brought in to match...
Hi all I am finishing a pine door with a medium brown water based dye, then two coats of shellac then water based poly. My problem is the dye on hardwood always colors everything evenly. The Pine is not acting that way. It seems to have some issue. When dyed it is even and uniform. But by the time the first coat of shellac is put on with a brush or foam brush the dye is not uniform. Would I be better off spraying the shellac? If so the alchol is quite flamable and I need to turn off the water tank and furnance. When I get home I will upload some pictures. My very kind spouse says she likes the variation. This is my first endevour with a closed cell softwood.
Would it be possible to change the color of the spell check underline, of incorrect spellings, to something a little more noticeable? Currently, on my monitor, it is a very pale green. A brighter color would be easier to notice.
Tried something different a couple of weeks ago and am wondering if anyone else is doing it. First a picture of the project. An easy eagle (Pattern by Gayle Mortison). Cut the project in Poplar and made the uneven corners. Before applying a finish, I go out some trusty water based paint and tinned the fool out of it to make a wash. Did the white and after that dried put some yellow on the beak. Jut to make the eye blacker, put a touch of black inside (from the back side). Waited for the whole thing to dry and then finished with two coats of satin lacquer. Have any of you guys tried this technique? Show us some pictures. If you haven't, would you be willing to try?

Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
