      profchris replied to the thread Danish Oil Finish.

      profchris replied to the thread Setting up a plane.
      I thought everyone knew that you place the blade under a pyramid at new moon so that the etheric vibrations can reshape the edge to...

      profchris replied to the thread Osmo a bit flat.
      It looks as if almost all the finish has been absorbed, leaving nothing on the surface. Find an inconspicuous spot and apply a couple...

      If you do try recycling wood, make sure you're not buying veneer over softwood. If in doubt try to lift a corner of the piece - solid...

      I'd be up to my local auction house to see if any ugly Victorian mahogany wardrobes are in the cheap section (my local runs two in...
