    Need suggestions for finish on funky end grain table

    I have almost finished sanding my funky end table: It will sit on my mostly covered front porch. When it is super windy some rain may splash in it. Also in some seasons I need to be careful to avoid mold as under the porch gets very little sun. I have spent hours sanding the top to really...

    End grain table: how to stabilize checks?

    About 5 years ago a friend gave me a disk cut from a tree he had taken down. This weekend I got around to flattening it. There are some checks in it, but they don't go all the way through. I was debating how to stabilize them. I could do butterflies. But was wondering if just epoxy would be...

    Cherry breakfast table

    I am sad to say it has been a few years since I completed a project. But this Nov I started on a small table for our breakfast nook. The nook gets some sun and I thought cherry would do well there as it ages and deepens in color. I really wanted curly cherry but I couldn't find any stock nearby...

    Great Lakes casters: lathe and bandsaw

    I have a small garage shop with some pretty big tools. All are on wheels except for my bandsaw (18" jet) and lathe (jet 1642). The bandsaw I didn't really need on wheels but the lathe is a pain when turning bowls if I want to bring the headstock to the tail end to give more room to avoid...
