    Hi there, my name is Garrett. I am relatively new to woodworking. Was recently laid off and found some spare time on my hands so i decided to try my hand at it again with some home improvement type projects.

    A client sent me a table that she needs refinished. The table was site unseen as I was out of town when it was delivered. She had mentioned the table had been coated in "many layers of Tung Oil" which had remained sticky and tacky over the years. Little did I know...that was the understatement...

    I run a restaurant that is about 20yrs old. I am wanting to refinish some stained/varnished wood near the cooking area. The wood has a buildup of grease and grime. Very coarse sandpaper just gums up on one swipe. Scrapers dig into the wood. I am obviously not experienced in refinishing wood...

    Recently, I purchased teak outdoor patio furniture. I was told by everyone it needs to be treated with teak oil so I bought Waco Teak Oil Finish and it turned the furniture a golden color. It doesn’t look bad but I prefer the pale color of the wood prior to treating. What I would like to...
  9. Wood Finishing
    I've just had some oak doors made which have had a clear semi-matt lacquer applied and I really don't like it. It feels as though it takes away any life from the wood giving it an almost 'fake' feel that could be mistaken for laminate. It's not laminate, but do you know what I mean? I've a...
