    Teak Treatment

    I'm just going to toss this out there as it's a bit unusual! I did a towel rack for our bathroom in teak a couple years ago and struggled with what finish to use. Since it was in a bathroom and not seen a whole bunch, I decided to run an experiment and I used GF Salad Bowl Finish. Weird, I know.. I was very happy with the appearance and now, 2 years or so later, dragging towels off it every day, I'm super happy with how it's held up.. I did wipe it with acetone just before applying the finish.
  3. Some figure 8s would work on the inside corner of each leg.. My only concern with that would be picking up the table. That table looks heavy and I can see where it's natural to pick it up by the top.
  4. Nicely done! I typically don't finish the inside of the drawers but, there's nothing wrong with doing so. If I were to finish the insides, I'd probably go with a WB finish since there's no off gassing or VOCs and cures rather quickly.
  5. Welcome Dave! I'll echo what the other have posted.
  6. I like to lightly block sand with 400 grit between coats. The idea is just to knock off the dust nibs.. As for how many coats, that depends on the look you want. When it looks the way you want it to look, you're done.
  7. Find some off cut material with similar grain, cut to fit the mortise, and glue in. Unless this is up front for the world to see and you can do a decent grain match, nobody will ever know.
  8. Welcome to the forums Tim! Obviously, we need just a little more info to help you out. I assume you're talking about hand planes. Collecting those large shavings can get tricky for a smaller "shop vac" type of set up. A larger dust collector would do the track or, perhaps adding something like a dust deputy to your "shop vac" system to separate the larger chunks from the dust could be the answer.
  9. Great review! I typically order my squares from Harry Epstein which sell these blems as well and have never been disappointed.. https://www.harryepstein.com/index.php/

    Miter saw

    Not sure about deflection on the 12's but, the Kapex get's you close to the 12" but, comes at a premium cost. I have the Kapex and if I were replacing it today, I'd probably be going with the Bosch Glide.. It's a nice saw, just a little behind on the dust collection.

    That's the only thing I can assume.. Nothing like panicking people going overboard buying a lifetime supply of a product because, for them, the world is going to end soon...
  12. Pretty fancy! Really nice job!
  13. I think this is spot on for the most part.. The numbers will change depending on where you live but, it's the "not included" costs that can bite you in the back side. I'm currently bidding out a 16' by 16' storage building and the differences are astronomical! Current low bidder is at about 11k and the high bidder is at 21k.. My point being, look to your local community and get some bids for building in the size and shape that you want. Then, compare those to the options like the one listed above..
