    As for your weathered oak table, just finished a tabletop using Verathane's Weathered Wood Accelerator and it started out grey after 2 coats. Then changed colors when I applied a water based poly to almost walnut or dark walnut. And even darkened with a second coat of poly. The finished product was great but it did change colors in the process, so test on scraps.

    I'm an amateur woodworker in Yuma, AZ which is normally a wee bit hotter than most places and have discovered Titebond Type II Extend which works well for me as it has a longer set time. Was discouraging to have the glue dry before I could join 2 boards together before I found this.

    Just a request...give us huddled masses a day or two reminder before the live Q & A. I like to watch them live but I usually remember/find out about the telecast when the notification comes up that it started xxx minutes ago.

    George do you have any plans on a class @ Rockler Denver?

    On the open time question earlier. Titebond shows the same open time for Original as III. I chose III then for versatility.
