  1. I do some modding for a bushcrafter on youtube who also turns bowls but not on video. I heard from him that he uses a combination of a mix of bees wax and seasame oil to finish the bowls I am wondering what this would do apparently its a food safe finish but I'm unsure of this, and what I am wondering if it would be something I should look into or forget about it entirely and keep using my food grade mineral oil?
  2. Fairly active week here on our forum with lots of posts and discussions- Please remember that we only have about 2 weeks left to reach our fundraising. Plenty of Raffle tickets left. If you haven't made a donation, please consider it- One last bit of housekeeping. Please remember to add Tags to your posts. The tags make it easier for folks to find similar information throughout our site. Tags can be materials used, tools used, techniques used, finishes used, turner's names, object types, etc, etc. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been busy with
  3. If you have a Facebook account, Woodcraft of Pittsburgh is having a free virtual demonstration on finishing. It is today- June 13, 2020.
  4. I hope this Wednesday finds all of you safe and healthy. Our Patriot Turners- @Lissa Hall posted a concern about the crack that occured in a cedar bowl she recently turned. Several of our members provided some advice about what might have happened. Please check out her post and maybe you can offer additional ideas- @Ron Altier turned another beautiful bell ornament! He explains more about it and the finish he uses in his post. We've had lots of updates on past posts. @Kevin Beitz is still fighting with a maple b
  5. I have had my Excaliber 21 for some time now and LOVE it. I love it so much that I have worn the "paint" right off the top near the blade opening. Now, the color of the bale matches the color of the blades. Makes it really tough to see the blade entry. I have tried paper, zero-clearance 1/4" plywood, coloring the blade with no results. OH, most learned members, how can I fix this problem. Short of taking it somewhere to have it ground down, polished and poder coated, does anyone have a real solution? Will be most anxiously awaiting your responses.
  6. Hello, I am to the stage of finishing the kitchen cabinets I have been making for my sister ski condo. In the first time in my woodworking life, I have purposefully attempted to contain as many knots in the wood to make it rustic. The wood I have used to make them is rustic hickory. I need to fill most of the knots before I can finish with a clear coat. I have seen some YouTube videos of filling gaps with black tinted epoxy. This is what I know; you put tape on the back of the board to keep the epoxy in the gap and mix up black epoxy and pore it in the knots or gaps. Has anyone ou
  7. When you create a peice of furniture you sometimes use a back of 1/4" ply. Do you glue or nail it in place? Do you prefinish it and the rest of the peice so that you can spray the interior ? Do you fasten it in place to act as a squaring device then after the glue drys in the frame remove it for finishing later on? I am finishing up my daughters curio cabinet and think it should go this way. 1. cut to fit but do not install. 2. Fiinish the face and sides of the peices and spray if desired. 3. Finish the plywood back. 4. Install the back with Nails to a
  8. Quite a wide variety of things this week. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier posted a question concerning his lathe's faceplate. He was having difficulty removing the faceplate after use. Our turners offered several suggestions and modifications. Head on over to Ron's post and see if you can add anything to what was discussed. @Gerald added a really great tip to the Woodturner's Forum tip section. He gave us a link to an article using the bandsaw for cutting bowl bland. Lots of good information- @John Morris Asked for information o
  9. Hello All, Let me start by saying I am not here to start a debate about politics, religion or motor oils I just don't know where to begin with final finishes. I have made a very simple floating shelf out of oak. I finally got it stained to the color/depth I like. I am not a big fan of oak or shiny finishes but "it matches the bathroom cabinets" my wife tells me. I am curious what my options are for finishing this product and stand up in a bathroom environment (steamy showers). I'd prefer satin if not flat finish. Does stain have to be top-coated
  10. So as I've been building storage in the shop I have yet to put any kind of finish on well anything. I've built a few wall hung cabinets, a router table, a smaller drill cabinet, the outfeed table, a rolling cabinet that holds and stores the Kreg Foreman, the miter station, and rolling clamp cart. And then a few jogs like the crosscut sled and so on but haven't put nay finish on anything yet. Is this normal, personal choice, or otherwise not wise? I admit I'm not the best at putting a finish on anything that isn't for the formal part of the house but that's a two part thing. 1st I'm not all tha
  11. I am about to inherit some blue stained pine. I am to "make something out of it". It is what I call "story wood" that carries as much history with it more than being some high quality piece of wood. I will make some sort of box that is not to be used heavily or often in hopes of protecting it. I've read some older posts on other sites about blue stained pine. I thought I would see if there are any new thoughts about working with it: . What might I do to harden pine so it doesn't scratch or dent quite as easily? . What might I do to finish it such that it doesn't ruin
  12. Woodworking tutorials, education and blogs and a finishing supplies store by Don Williams.
  13. Here is an article on cold weather finishing. Note that it is supplied by a vendor so they lean toward their product. Remember that finishes "cure" by one of three methods Evaporation of the solvent (spaghetti) lacquer, shellac, and wax Chemical reaction with oxygen (tinkertoys) varnishes (that also contains a dilutent that evaporates off first) and oils Bonding of large molecules that have been softened (soccer balls) water borne The first dry fast (minutes) but to fully cure take a bit longer, the second and third get solid in a few hours, but c
  14. From the faces I put one these folks they don't seem too happy but I'm still in the finishing stage so maybe they will cheer up before I get them shined showered and shaved! The baby was wrapped in swattling clothes and I couldn't find any of those while building this picture...
  15. Looking for some use for those old bandsaw blades and found you can cut and bend them into great work supports for finishing.
  16. Like most having a fan is a must sometimes. Whether it be for the heat, to aid with drying, or just air circulation. But the thing is always in the way, taking up real estate on a bench you would be happier full of more junk,.... I mean stuff. At first I mounted it to the ceiling and put it on a plate that swiveled. Worked but still in the way and was a pain to take down. Then someone gave me some t channel track for a garage door. Now this had potential. Made a carriage to slide on the track and mounted the fan. It already swiveled up and down all I needed was side to side. The track
  17. Having done a dry fit I took it all back apart and spent a few evenings painting, or staining and some urethane for a finish. Reassembled and reinstalled finished product. This gives me a much needed run to the bench from an existing outlet for the bandsaw. Even added a future outlet for a potential 10 inch bandsaw if I ever come across one reasonable priced. Free is always better but that has not materialized as of this evening. While I could have just left the PVC white and called it a day I had a friend that has a drainpipe in a cubby hole. His wife wanted to add a shelf an
  18. Got this 12 inch Grizzly a few years ago. At the time I did not have Dust Collection piped to where I put it. So I improvised and used a short hose and a bucket. it worked, not well but was better than dust everywhere. Finally got around to upgrading this bench and gave myself a few goals. I mounted the sander to a plate that locks in at the back to the bench. Just in case I need to move it, it will happen people. Then I decided I needed dust collection done right. The saw points the wrong way for the outlet so I had to get creative to reverse directions. Another goal was to store the
  19. Pulled this from another site. Apparently Charles Neil is uploading his finishing videos- https://www.youtube.com/user/InTheWorkshop/videos
  20. I just wanted to update folks on the status of Kieth Mealy as our Finishing Forum Host. At last contact it sounded like Keith was up to his eyeballs with life and business and he is just having a heck of a time getting back here with us. Believe me, I know how he feels, sometimes just to squeeze in a few minutes can be a daunting task, and it stays in the back of your head as something you know you need to do, but just can't, then ya start to feel bad about not being able to get it done, and then the task just becomes a pain in the rear to have lurking in the back of your brain, yep, we a
  21. To get a nice sheen on a turning after sanding thru the higher grits, grab a handful of shavings, dial up the lathe RPM's and hold the shavings against the spinning piece.
  22. I just read this interesting sanding article. https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/woodworking-tips-1210oct/tracecoat.html Herb
  23. A great week here for the Patriot Woodturners. Just today, @Steve Krumanaker posted his gorgeous, finished "Maple Rocks" bowl- Steve posted more information and images here- @Smallpatch is making more progress on his teapots. He posted his updated progress- @Steve Krumanaker is preparing to give a demo to the turning club, of which he is a member. Steve pointed out how much work it is to create/give a successful demonstration. When properly done, the audience
