    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...

    Hey guys, brand new to woodworking and I was hoping to get some advice on how to finish this interesting piece I have (image below). It's built from about 200 1/2" cubes glued together.

    Hello all, Recently I accidentally left a vegetable on this wooden table. It decomposed while I was away for a week or so. After scrubbing the wood, I nearly got all of the mold out, but not quite. I also removed some of the stain. How would you go about restoring this to the original...

    Can Watco Danish Oil Natural (clear) be applied to an already stained wood? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but the directions seem to indicate it should only be used on bare wood. I would understand this for the Watco that contains stain, but what about the clear? Thanks for your input.

    Hi All I came across this forum while doing a search for a solution to my "too much teak oil" problem :) I month ago I purchased a Danish mid-century teak dining table. When it was delivered it looked fine but it did have a light smell of what I thought was varnish but it turned out to be...

    Hello, I bought red oak stair treads from one of the big box stores. I sanded them to a 220 grit finish then stained them with oil-based stain. I did two coats of stain, rubbed off excess stain after 15 mins for both coats. The last coat was done about 60 hours ago and the boards have been...

    I have a rather large bookcase that needs to be repainted. The first time around I used a Glidden latex paint. It never seemed to fully dry and remained sticky to the touch for over a year. Needless to say, it needs to be redone. I intend to sand it fully before i repaint it. I am not sure...

    I am working on a sideboard from the 70s in teak veneer, which I stripped and bleached (with two component bleach) as I didn't like its dark stain. It now has a colour I like and I would go for a natural finish in wax (was thinking of Briwax). But after enduring all the washing I wonder if I...
