    George ,just finished a display case for my Dad's violin. The wood is all poplar. Using Bulls eye primer to seal, then sand ,and paint with high gloss white paint to match our piano. What paint can you recommend ? Thanks

    Do u ever use triple E to polish on lathe turning

  3. Wray Lokey

    Should fresh cut logs be sealed if they are not going to be milled immediately

    I just bought my first drum sander. I have tried to final sand some walnut. I keep getting burn marks and or course is trashes up the sand paper too. What am I doing wrong? Feeding too fast, too slow. I've tried to take 1/64th per pass.

    Hi George Tim, From Madison. In my opinion from working on a band saw 40 hours a week in a furniture factory, the band saw is the most dangerous Machine But most People don't use one that often. Sharp Blades are the Key.

    How tight should the band be in my bandsaw?

  7. David
