  1. top coat both sides or one in a cabinet made with plywood

    So if using ply do we top coat both sides (show and hidden) of everything or just the show die is enough. I figured there is so much glue already inside plywood that the force introduced by poly may...

    I have been told I have slightly longer arms for my height, I am 5'8" and from the tip of my fingers to the arm pit it is 29". I have a Diston #8 panel saw and I find the length to be just about...

    I have made wooden planes both with and without a tote. I find the traditional grip on a wooden plane to be uncomfortable, the tote helps in creating a balanced and comfortable grip when working on a...

    It seems I am in the minority, but I don't think a bench top needs a finish. I certainly don't want my bench top to be slick, just flat and "grippy" like Mike said.

    Nothing is installed, I have a sheet of plywood waiting to be cut and joined. I learned a long time ago to finish everything before glue up. So all stain and top coat work will be done pre-assembly...

    Scott, what do you suggest as a source for lacquer. I choose Deft because I do not have an HVLP sprayer so any spray option I use has to come in a can, Deft is just more easily available through the...

    Sheldon the bowl reflection you see is actually a window behind me when I was taking the pictures, both pictures were taken in day light and no artificial light. Cellphone camera I guess. I want to...
  9. I think I am getting close

    So after some alchemy and trial with dyes this is what I ended up with. Look at the sample stick against the cabinets. Interesting thing is as I move the stick around two colors stand out as good...

    the finish is lacquer, that I am sure of because it comes off with lacquer thinner.
  11. suggestions for matching existing cabinets

    Finishing is probably my least favorite part of a project and I try to stick with a a one size fits all type solutions, consequently this one has got me stumped. I have a relatively older kitchen...

    What Zach said, I have a mix of both but the wooden planes are by far my favorites. Flattening the sole of a wooden jointer is so much easier than a cast iron plane, that in itself justifies getting...

    I too have a Clifton 410 shoulder plane (which coincidentally came from Chris Schwarz when he was thinning his tools way back in 2004/2005) and have previously used the Veritas medium shoulder plane....

    Mike, exactly. The WWer in me woke up and said what sloppy craftsmanship, but then I thought the cabinets have survived over 18 yrs across three owners and are still in pretty good shape. All the...

    staples, glue and particle board

    I'm having the counter tops replaced with granite in my kitchen. When the installers removed the old counters I got access to the guts of the cabinets. I was surprised/shocked to see the sloppy...

    I use a more simplistic approach, so far no issues after 1 year of use. I have actually slightly modified this now. The dowel hole in the middle of the bench now houses a bench hook, which serves the...

    I'd say if you have limitations like you described stick with wonderdogs. I am assuming you will have your table saw on the right side which limits the use of an end vise. You can possibly put your...
