Maybe my mistake will help someone!

When building glass rail and stile doors, I forgot to pre-stain the grooves prior to assembly.

oh my - how many do you have that was done this way ?
if you have some scrap wood and glass available, I would
cut the same groove and put the glass in and squirt some stain
in the grooves with a syringe of some sort and see how it goes.
[I've never done it - it is just something that I would try on some
sample pieces to see what works].

Most states wont let you purchase hypo needes in a pharmacy without a prescription of sorts. Sometimes if you ask the pharmacist, they will give you some. Now if you go to an agriculture supply store, you can buy all you want. They come in all diameter/sizes - no questions asked. I'm sure you could do the same with a veterinarian supply house. Or move to NYC where you get all you want from the state for free.

You may not be able to purchase in pharmacy. However, you can probably purchase in an animal supply house. Places that sell shots for horses, cattle, dogs etc. When I had my Feed & Seed store I sold them.


You can also get on Amazon.

if syringes are not an option, I save (hoard) all the plastic
applicator bottles I run across. if you're gonna be a DIY Fixit guy,
you need to start a collection of assorted application bottles.
(in my area, medical syringes are not regulated).

It's bad form to tell us something like that and not show us photos...

When you do a lot of repair and refinish work, you use a lot of needles. Most are too small for epoxy, but perfect for CA glue to repair lifting veneer and lacquer thinner to remove plastic laminate from a substrate and a whole bunch of other stuff.

There are larger gauges that are fine for epoxy. I use the larger gauges for injecting thick liquids into turkeys.


Or if you have something really thick, get a baster from a kitchen supply store.

I live in NH and I go to a local hardware store and I purchase wood glue syringes. They are legal and easy to purchase and they don't work in any medical (legal or illegal) applications. I paid about $5 for a set ( s & l) and they are easy to clean with hot water.

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Bashing the places where people live is rude and inappropriate, and does not belong in a woodworking forum. Such comments do not contribute to answering the OP's question.

People from all over the world make positive contributions to these forums. They are equal and active members of this community. Humor at other people's expense is not funny, at least not to them. All you do is display your own ignorance and lack of consideration when you insult the places where other members live. You are entitled to your own thoughts, but keep them to yourself and focus on the woodworking topic at hand.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but I have grown weary of such comments and feel a need to speak out.

Its not that noticeable and I would fix it if it were really necessary, but this is a drill storage cabinet.


I've decided to leave it like it as a constant reminder not to do that again!!


At least until I get so used to looking at it that I forget............................

Really? I was trying to save someone the embarrassment of calling them out directly. My home state is the butt of frequent insults and "jokes" here. You want to talk about woodworking? I am all for it. You want to pile on my home state? Save it for some political forum where I don't have to see it.

-> How would you feel if people kept making related snide remarks about Florida, even though they have nothing to do with woodworking, while you are trying to make a positive contribution to this forum?

Repeating my apology to others - I am sorry for hijacking the thread, but felt a need to call it out. It happens all too often at WoodworkingTalk and I have grown tired of it. This isn't about "political correctness", it is about common decency and respect for others, which seems to be more and more uncommon.

I take comments like that as someone just trying to be a "smart Ass." Especially when they do the cute little spelling of Kalifornia. They think writing like that makes them into one of the "in" people.


Sorry it offended you.

I thought the Kalifornia comment was quite funny (and accurate). Its in all the states to be fair, but seems more common here in Kalifornistan and by the way, I live in CA and have been here over 50 years. Yes, it was off subject but it was funny. Yes, I will be moving to the USA when I retire next April.

I just play with wood in order to make sawdust, I make the very best sawdust.

So uh back to syringes...



Great little things they are! They come is handy for awkward gluing and assorted other tasks. I keep a few around my shop, just keep them clean as you don't want glue drying inside of the needle.

God I love Trigger. Inferno Cop is exactly the sort of idiocy they do, It's what makes them so cool. Met them all, great guys.

Sorry, not funny and not helpful to my point. I guess I am too thin-skinned for this forum.
