      Hi Ahmed. Wow, that is really hot! Unfortunately I don’t have a suggestion for you on an insulation material as I have never looked into this. Please let us know what you come up with.
      Thanks

    Understood that you need to mask glue joints to prevent topcoat from impacting adhesion. Is it necessary (or advisable) to mask for oil or water based stains as well? How about for sanding sealer?

      Hi Michael. You don’t have to mask for stains; just let them dry thoroughly. You will want to mask for sanding sealer, however, as any sealer will interfere with glue adhesion.

    George, watched your video in finishes but still not sure about my situation. what finish would you recomment for small unfinished / natural wood toys? Trains, planes, etc. Needs to be safe, something to give some luster to wood grains, protects wood better, add definition to assortment of woods. and easy as possible to do in small shop.
