Looks great, been hunting for threaded inserts to make some tap handles, do you mind sharing where you found what you used?
I have read that they are available at Lowes. I found them on Amazon but I plan to try Lowes first. I will follow up if I find them.
Looks sweet! How’d that water based stain work for you? I’ve been debating on switching from oil base (would rather wash my brush out w/ water than thinner) but read a few sour reviews on water based. And issues or tips on your usage?
Final product seems fine but it takes a few coats to get there. The first couple are really rough, like sandpaper. I like using it when the goal is to be done quickly and it doesn’t have to be perfect. This was a project that I had to start and finish while the wife was at the salon so water based it is.
I have attempted to sharpen the tools but I have no frame of reference to know if they are sharp or not. I consistently break the part when I start shaping the bottom of the piece. The one time that I got it right it broke as soon as I tried to tool the end. I moved from between points to a screw chuck. It immediately started wobbling and shattered.
My guess is that this is partly dull tools and partly working with pine, any truth to that?
Ours had free reign until we bought a new couch. We got couch alarms to train him and it worked!
Unfortunately, I am weak and wanted to cuddle a couple times, so now he is right back to not asking for permission and just hopping up.
May look into the alarm. This couch is days old.
You should feed your dog raw. Bones and all. Do some research on the B.A.R.F. Diet. Unless if your dog is SUPER picky and has to have food warm or something lol.
I will read up on that. This was just leftovers from firing up the charcoal grill on a cold Michigan night.
What kind of epoxy? Did you have to clean up the sides or does it dry pretty even?
Famowood glaze coat. Available at Lowe’s. Thinner in the sides than on the top but it left a nice finish. It left massive drips off the bottom but I hit it with a sharp chisel and sanded it down.
Shit I have no idea man.
It just seems wasteful to buy something only to destroy it. It seems like you know what you're doing
If you look at the light on the website you will see that i didn’t really destroy it. I just routed the existing wires through the beam.
