    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...

    Hello, I am building a coffee table with a nice Peruvian walnut slab. Being that this species of wood is quite dark, what do you guys think is the best way to finish and to not lose out on its natural beauty. The two products I am looking at is Osmo Polyx-Oil – 3043 Clear Satin or Rubio...

    I'm looking to upgrade the look of my bathroom vanity. Instead of replacing it completely I thought I'd just swap the panels. So instead of the plastic-like white, I'd like it to be a nice walnut wood. Basically simple flat panels, like the existing ones. Question is, how? (I'm not experienced...

    Hey there! First off a little bit of background: I've always wanted to work with wood but didn't have the chance until now (no space, no money). I only have basic handtools and some handheld power tools, which should be enough to start the obsession :grin: I've received a lot of wood as a gift...

    Hello, my name is Dona. I have sewn all my life and made many things with my mother. Now I am bored with fabric and have been transferring my skills and creativity to wood. My father has a shop and has started working in it now that he is retired. I got this idea to build a walnut 10x4 foot...

    I'm asked to help decide what type of wood, would be appropriate for a high-end "full wall paneled" hallway, with simple crown, base, and chair-rail moldings. We want an unobtrusive wood with not much figure... because in a large hallway...too much wood figure would get distracting and...

    Hi everyone, I’ve been adding layers to this walnut nightstand, I think I have six coats of pure tung oil from Rockler on it, but there was one that got left on too thick and I had to rub off a bunch of semi-dried oil (that white flakey stuff), as a precaution I sanded it down with...

    Hello. I acquired a rather long piece of walnut that I cut into two pieces. One piece is 6 feet (and I plan to make a coffee table out of it). The other piece is 4 feet, and the one I'm currently working on. I've planed the wood and sanded it to 220 on both sides. I've decided to keep most of...
