    After Hurricane Ida tore through New Orleans a few weeks ago I decided to take on a project I have been wanting to do for a long while. I went out and gathered a couple of cypress tree trunks cut between 20" and 26" tall and upwards of 10"-12" across. Stripped the bark and plan to let them dry...

    HI, I have a client who wants walnut butcher block table tops for their restaurant. They want them to be 30”x48”. I am just wanting to know if anyone could give their input on pricing for this with either a polyurethane finish vs an epoxy finish. I do not want to under quote myself. I’m thinking...

    I Applied about 6 coats of wipe on polyurethane finish to a desktop I'm finishing. Unfortunately the finish itself isnt as hard as I would like it to be. I was able to make visible indents with my fingernail. Is it possible to apply an wipe on epoxy over the poly? Or is there a better...

    I found this video on the Wooden Boat forum and it relates to us here in general woodworking with structural adhesives. sometimes we need to go beyond the pocket screws and wood glue in joinery. the video is 30 minutes long, but worth watching when you find the time. it is just for information...

    I am fed up with the 5 minute epoxy that comes in the twin-syringe package. You don't get much, and it isn't very good. I need epoxy adhesive for various small projects - woodworking and otherwise. I would like to buy a better quality epoxy. Epoxy that comes in reasonable quantities - more than...

    Hi, I'm getting ready to finish a countertop project and need some advice. It's juniper, unstained, and I'll be using several coats of water-based polyurethane satin finish. But being juniper, there are lots of little knot-holes, depressions, cracks, etc. that need filling... but I still want to...

    Hello All. Noobie357 here, and as you may have guessed... I'm new. I have a quick question about epoxy. My wife has a new island top that she stained with oil-based stain. I did a bit of research since she wanted that bar-top look in the end. I found a thread in this forum from 2014 stating...

    Spouse wants to hang a plaster butterfly on a garden stake. The previous spring/wire contraption didn't work very well. Spouse brought it to me. I made a simple wood bracket in two minutes. I cleaned off the back with a brush and a damp rag. It was a very warm, dry day, and I am sure there was...

    I just finished turning out a segmented mug and got carried away in applying butcher block oil. I typically apply oil to the outside then apply an epoxy to the inside but on this one my brain shut down for a good 5 minutes and I rubbed some of the butcher block oil on the inside of the mug! I’ve...

    Newbie here, so feel free to correct me on anything. I've been working on this red oak (I think) cookie slab to use as a coffee table. I wanted to use an epoxy resin to fill the cracks and prevent dust from getting stuck in there. Question #1: Do you guys think I should epoxy fill the large...

    Hello Everyone - I'm preparing to apply a bar top epoxy as the final finish for a slab of wood I've been working on. I purchased EnviroTex Lite and have been reading the directions and have spoken to the company directly regarding application. There is a lot of informaiton on the flood coat...

    Hey all, Working on a project where I cut a design into a piece of wood and filled it with epoxy, this is my first project with epoxy. I plan on routing it down to get a clean and flush top and sanding from 220 - 3000 grit. My question is: I often see people pour oil over these types...

    Hello - I'm working on finishing a bar top and am searching for a bar top epoxy to use for the finish; I see a bunch on Amazon for sale, but not sure if they're any good. My original plan was to use a MinWax stain and the MinWax Fast Drying Polyeurthane, but after doing some reading I'm now...

    Hello Everyone - I'm in the process of finishing a slab and was considering purchasing System Three T-88 to fill some cracks. These are not large cracks - maybe 1/16th or 1/8th thick - but there are a few of them and a couple of them are about 8" long. Are these worthy of filling w-epoxy? and...

    Our project is using +100 year old 2x12s with kerf marks as a kitchen island counter top. The island will measure 3ft8in x 14ft. We want to leave all of the character/flaws/kerf marks in the wood and the boards do contain a slight crown. We are looking at using a self-leveling pour on epoxy...

    Here's a few pictures of the blank I'm working on now. As you can see, it's got a bit of a crack and a void in it. I had a go filling this with 2 part epoxy-resin. Thing is, it was my first time using the stuff so I don't think I got it quite right, though I'm intending to add the finishing...

    Hi everyone! I just recently received a promising inquiry from a restaurant wanting a big quantity of table tops made with an epoxy layer surface.
