  1. TGIF Furniture Polishes Some people feel the need to polish furniture. We’ll explore the options. There are a few things that cause finishes to deteriorate · Exposure to light · Oxidation · Physical damage –impact, scratches, water, foods, solvent, heat, body oils (acidic), chemicals Polishes, other than providing some light cleaning, don’t do much except make the surface a little slipperier to reduce scuffing. They can also make a nice smell, and to conceal surface damage, and provide some internal gratification that you (or the hou
  2. First let me say I’m sorry I haven’t been around lately. Sold my house at the worst possible time, trying to find another one is extremely challenging and stressful. Not to mention my sister has been diagnosed with Altzhiemers...you guys and this forum have been so good to me that I felt you should know...anyhow, I’ve seen a lot of turning videos and it seems everyone is using Acks products for a finish. Does anyone here use it? If so, does it hold a lasting shine? Just curious. I use EEE sanding paste and Aussie Oil as a finish. The Aussie oil seems to hold a much longer shine than wax
  3. Last year I bought a couple of turning blocks from Rockler. They were not large and were coated in a good coat of wax. It was an experiment for me. I wanted a source of exotic wood in my area. I didn't get around to using them for a few months and when I did, I was surprised and disappointed. The wood was wet inside that wax. That irritated me, I was sure it should be dry and ready to use. Yesterday I returned to Rockler, because of my wife. She wanted to go to Joann's material store and it is across the street from Rockler. I was the only customer and got great service. I didn't complain ab

  5. This is the Rob Corson dowel hinge. With a bullnose or ball router bit on a router table the size of the dowel, route a 1/4 round slot in the back of lid and back of box. Set the fence at the center of the bit diameter and run the top and the box through. The fence can be set in or out to suit the particular box and how wide the lid opens. Take a dowel the same size as the router bit and cut lengths to suit the length of the box, they can be the same length or different lengths. Drill a hole in the center of the dowel the size of the pin. The pin can be metal rod, or wooden do
  6. There is not a lot of things to say about wax finishes, so only three things, not three pros and three cons. I am not talking about waxed finishes, but simply using a wax as the one and only finish. Some waxes are light amber, but you can get waxes in a variety of darker colors where the color has been added. Wax is an evaporative finish, meaning with the thinner or solvent evaporates, you are left with the finish. No more chemistry happens. Usually the solvent is mineral spirits, but sometimes, as in the original Briwax, it's something else, in that case tolulol (aka toluene)
  7. A fellow cut down a chestnut tree, not knowing it was being watched and cared for by the University of Georgia. I was given some of the wood. By the time I got it, some of it had already developed cracks, so I wanted to seal it. I looked around and found a package of food canning wax, got out my blower heater, and melted it onto the ends. Took about 30 seconds, didn't need to melt a bunch of wax and dip the ends in it, and it seemed to do a good job. I had been putting a pan on a heater, melting it, and dipping it. Thought someone else might like the idea.

    What kind of wax do you use? I used to use Johnsons paste wax and several years ago Bonnie Klein a local wood turner was giving a demonstration for our WW Club and mentioned she liked the Lundmark carnuba paste wax. She said she uses it because it gives a hard finish and easy to apply and buff out and prevents finger prints on her work when people handle it. So I bought some and have been using it since with good results. https://www.amazon.com/Lundmark-Wax-LUN-3206P001-6-Applicable-Paste/dp/B000BYAQC2?SubscriptionId=AKIAIKBZ7IH7LXTW3ARA&&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&cre
  9. The Product Before beginning, it’s important to distinguish between a wax finish and a waxed finish. A wax finish is using wax as the only finishing product. A waxed finish is using a wax as a polish over another finish such as the ones we’ve already covered. Waxes are of different types Animal – beeswax Vegetable – for example, carnauba Mineral – paraffin (a petroleum product) Synthetic A wax product may (and often is) a combination of different kinds of waxes. To make it workable, it can be dissolved (softened) in a solvent to make it int
