    I thought I'd post a half-brained idea as my first thread. Pine is notorious for its tendency to blotch and also that the grain reversal occurs when staining. This is because the lighter soft-grain part of the wood tends to absorb more readily than the darker grain. I wonder then, what were...

    Well I finished the Hall Table for my wife. Not sure about the top - she may yet change it to quartz. The primary wood is clear pine stained with Minwax Jacobean and 2 coats of Varathane semigloss. The accent on the top is unstained hard maple.

    Howdy all! First time furniture builder here and need some advice from you experts. I am building a dining room table with a concrete top. The top is approximately 4'x8' and 2" thick. I used 8 80lb bags of concrete, so I am estimating the top to be about 700lbs. I planned on making the base...

    I asked this question on top of another post but I figure it may be easier to just post it separately. I was charring a pine table top last night and to my dismay, I found that when I was done that the sides had warped upwards. I imagine this is from the heat of the torch shrinking the fibers on...

    Ahem, I am working on making a very simple replacement table top for an antique sewing machine. I have used boiled linseed oil for previous projects because a friend who happens to be a woodworking professional told me that it was a really great finish for most woods. I am now attempting to...

    This may seem like a dumb question but I am trying to work on my sanding principles when it comes to woodworking. I am gluing two 2x4 pieces of wood, fresh from the lumberyard, together. Is this the kind of thing that I should be sanding before I glue? They seem like a perfect shape and size at...

    I could really use some help. We bought an old home, the newest room is 40 years old and has rough cut knotty pine paneling. It's been stained once, but we removed old shelving and now we have large areas without stain and it looks awful. Any suggestions how I go about cleaning the wood (it's...

    I have been given a 12 foot by 22 or 23 inch pine slab, I think it still has the bark on what do I do with that? I want to use if for a bar top, air drying just isn't an option I don't have a large enough space to store it for the quite a few years it will take to dry. So what are my options on...

    Here is my plan. I am using my Kreg Jig to build a toy box with Pine and Oak. In most cases it will be connecting Oak to Oak or Pine to Pine but in one or two cases it will be Oak to Pine. I know you want coarse threads for soft wood like Pine but my question is; 1) Can I use HiLo screws when...

    Hello, I recently purchased an armoire, which generally looks great and is nicely built. However it has a large knot/ repair on the inside of the door (see image). My question: is the size / appearance /location of this knot-repair normal and expected or acceptable, or do I have grounds for...

    Hey guys and gals. I'm making a bookshelf out of sanded pine plywood and I wanted to stain, and polyurethane it. I've never done either. I've seen lots of videos on it. What do you recommend for applying the stain? Rag? Or brush? If brush, what type?

    First post so bear with me. I'm building a bar for a friend and he wants Gunstock finished oak hardwood flooring for the top. He wants the body of it to match the top. I used pine shiplap panels for the body and I'm wary of using gunstock stain on pine because it always looks too orange-ish. I...

    Hello all! I'm a complete newbie to the entire woodturning process and I hope that I'll be able to get some answers from the experts who are on this site! My father-in-law has some downed pine trees on his property and I want to cut the trees into some slabs to use for centerpieces or cake...

    LOML decided that our son needed an update for his room. He’s had the same look for 10 years now. Anyway, she came across these bookcases designed originally by Gerald Summers. Nothing special, just butt joints and screws with a little paint thrown in to make it look nice. All done...

    I'm going to use the wood sanding dust to make a filler on a new white pine floor to fill the gaps and imperfections in the wood. Everything I have read online about how to do this mentions to mix the fine dust with my finish, but I haven't seen any specific type or brands of finish (I want to...
