    Flattening water stones (Not!)

    I have used waterstones for sharpening for years. Up until a year or so ago, when I bought a Norton flattening stone, I used sandpaper on a glass plate for flattening every few sessions. Lately I have been seeing flaky results. I use a Veritas bevel guide, establish the main bevel with the...

    Copper water pipe in ground...

    I hope ya'll will tell me I'm worrying for nothing...... Whilst under the house (no sewage stories this time), large runs of my water pipe is under or sitting in contact with the ground. There is some green corrosion or, as I like to pretend it is, a patina of joy on some of the pipe...

    Water based finishes

    I would like to share a water based finishing system from target coatings (targetcoatings.com) that I think is not just as good, but better than any other I have used. I started out using waterlox oil based on cabinets, urethane based for high traffic and a nice french polish with dewaxed...

    Toe in the Water

    I placed the proverbial toe in the water today. WoodArtz was kind enough to let me look over his shoulder as he created a bowl. He is a very good instructor and the hands on training was quite fun, yet much, much harder in application than what you seasoned veterans make it look like...

    8000 grit Norton water stone

    I am having some trouble with my 8000 grit Norton water stone. Instead of really polishing, I am getting some scratching. I flattened the stone on sandpaper and this is the first time I have used it. Anyone got any ideads or suggestions? Also, do you have to use a nagura stone to work up a...

    Norton Water Stones

    Back in the summer I bought the David Charlesworth DVD's on sharpening and using hand planes. I got inspired! I ordered a set of Norton Water Stones and a couple of Hock 2" plane irons for wooden planes from Highland Woodworking. I plan of making a couple of wooden planes. Just tried the...

    Water Based Poly over Dyed Surface?

    I just dyed the surface of a TV Stand. I intend to apply water based ploy afterward. My question: Do I need to apply a sealer coat in between? Will the water based poly smear the water soluble dye? Thanks for any help. Qui

    Water Heater Pilot Light ...

    I've been out of town this week and got the call yesterday from the LOML saying the water is all cold. Obviously the water heater wasn't warming ... and today I returned home to confirm no pilot light. Now I don't know much about these things, but it look fairly straight forward. Put the knob...

    Which water based poly finishes do you use?

    I am used to using either the Arm R Seal & Seal a Cell or BLO/Behlens Rock Hard Varnish...all wiped on. I would like to move to water based for my next project but have not used any in the past. I was wondering what water based poly finishes you folks use, how you apply the finish and if you...

    Cleaning up water damaged maple furniture

    There's one thing about used furniture, you get what you pay for. So what I got was some twin bed frames of red maple that has some black stains on the posts(appears to be water damage). Being a brave woodworker I thought I could refinish them and have something nice( and a good woodworking...

    Oil based stain & water based poly compatibility

    Are they compatible??? I have a project where I want the durability of poly without the off gassing, and I would like to stain it with a oil based stain that I've used for other pieces for a good match. Dave:-)

    Water dammage

    I recently got this walnut (I think) antique drop leaf table. It's in excellent shape except for the water spots on the top. I really don't want to strip and refinish it and lose the patina. Does anyone know how to get rid of the spotting without ruining the rest of the finish?
