Post: RE: replacement wheels for Shop Fox mobile base

Post: RE: Wood stain outside without finish

That works. Thank You.Did not think of that.  BUT, what about the original question? How does Minwax (or other) stain hold up outside by itself?

Post: RE: Picture Frames? Where To Start?

I have one simple tip you may find helpful. When I make picture frames I go to Dollar Tree and buy an appropriately sized plastic frame and use the glass. Can't get it any cheaper.

Post: Aniline dye and Spar varnish

Since aniline dyes fade from UV, has anyone ever used exterior spar varnish instead of regular interior polyurethane? Potential problems? Just trying to think outside the box.
