Post: RE: Gluing onto Polyurethane Finished Wood?

If I were doing that, I’d reach for turners tape. Put a block across the letters and clamp down hard for a few seconds, and the letters probably can’t be removed without destroying them. I’d apply t...

Post: RE: Finish question on Pine

MinWax Antique Cherry is a good color for pine. It's important that you don’t reverse the grain by using too dark a stain. That’d what gave pine a bad name in the '70’s.

I’m talking real Forbo Marmoleum. It has worn like iron in our van for six years. Hiking boots love to bring in sharp rocks and it doesn’t care. What's ridiculous is that whatever these "experts" re...

My first kickback sent a 12x12 chunk of oak sailing across a shop class full of people. It could easily have killed someone. The #$&* instructor just laughed and never told me what I had done...

I hate to see real wood or stone in hotels, restaurants, particularly fast food, because I know it will be trashed in a few years.

You guys are of course correct. My mind got stuck on “quarter". It would still need to be a dimension you can set the dado to. For shallow shop drawers that won’t be holding anything heavy, I glue ...

It's a very good method. The possible downside for you is that the material needs to be exactly 1/2”. You may or may not have access to such at a price reasonable for shop drawers.

I think I’ve seen what you describe somewhere in Europe—with a little extra. One small t*rd kept disappearing and reappearing. It was so funny I videoed it.

The handle has its first application of Tru-Oil. Not perfect, but good enough. This is a utilitarian object, not a real project. MrNomer talked me into foregoing the epoxy and just relying on the...

Another consideration you haven’t addressed—what kind of wear will these corners get? As is, those corners will be terribly vulnerable.
