Hello from Pullman WA.

Hey everyone, The name is chad. The old man had a wood shop when I was growing up. I thought i payed attention to what he taught me ,but maybe I didnt, Because I have alot of questions...lol.
I also told my girlfiend that woodworking would be cheaper than fishing, and playing golf all the time. I think she figured out that was a lie...oops! I have checked out alot of sites, and I finally decided on this one. I hope you guys can help...
My newest challenge is staining/dying maple??????????

Burg,
Welcome to the forum, there are alot of great and knowledgeable guys on this site, but you will find that out . If i remember i think i have flown into Pullman a couple of times on my way to Lewiston Idaho. One more thing, you better think of a better lie than, i won't fish as much, or i won't golf as much if you think you're gonna hoodwink a woman.

Welcome from Texas !!!

Welcome to the forum, Burg.

What finish are you looking for that you are having trouble with?

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Sealer

I don't think sealer is the right term but I used a "sealer" a few years ago to help the stain work properly on some pine that was large grained. I don't remember the brand name now but I think it cam from Minwax. Check with your local box store and see what the stain mfg's recommend for pine. That may work for your application as well.
