    Very nice work, but how am I supposed to read that in the jacuzzi?

    You know, you could advertise in KQ's xmas thread and sell a bunch of those.

    Did I say very nice work. It is. Looks like you got the finish you were looking for.

    I assume that's the kind of book that requires an incantation to open it and another to close it. Woe be unto thee if you do not close it. Plus all pages must be written in blood.

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    Sounds a little like a high tech, low effort version of a finish I used to do--Danish oil allowed to dry without wiping off, then wet sanded with nmore Danish oil and wiped off, then wax. Not good for high wear, high moisture. But then I didn't have an accelerator which I presume polymerizes the finish? (I had an uncle that knew about accelerants, but that was different.) I might see if Fine Woodworking or some other magazine does a test.


    I get sapele from a couple of local hardwood dealers in Sacramento. I like Hughes. (Front area has thicker pieces in small quantities; the 4/4 stuff is at the far end. Took me years to figure that out.) Auburn Hardwoods has it. Unfortunately it's surfaced 3 sides. I would prefer it rough. It resembles mahogany in color, most pieces have a prominent ribbon figure and its grain is more open than mahogany. I would prefer mahogany if I could get it in a reasonable quality, quantity, and price. From what I've read Khaya is another African "mahogany" that might be preferable, but I haven't seen it around. I've sometimes found rough boards at Aura Hardwood in Sacramento. Macbeath Hardwood in the Bay area and Stockton might be worth a look for rough lumber. I used to be able to find rough lumber when I had to surface it with hand planes. Now that I have a jointer/planer I can't find it any more.

    Question #3 from has their discussion on rubio. As far as wear, my upstairs coffee/dining table is now a year old. High touch, high wear, medium moisture and it looks good as new.

    Wood by Wright did a pretty detailed comparison to Boiled Linseed oil too

    If you're looking for rough boards in Sacramento, Urban wood rescue is a cool project that slabs out local fallen trees. Decent prices, but inventory is variable

    First time looking through this thread but I'm a big fan of rubio monocoat. Used it on my butcher block kitchen island that I did last winter. Turned out great. Looks good and preserves the wood feel.

    I have a brand new festool rotex 150 for sale if anyone is interested. Looks like it retails for $670, happy to sell it here for $500 and split shipping before it goes to ebay/craigslist.

    I'm only selling it as I have a duplicate of this exact sander in the garage already.

    The roof has taken a long time.

    Finally got the bird blocking in and now, today, got the chimney support box and the chimney in through a high temperature resistant and not python silicone boot.

    Windows ,some salvaged, some new, next.

    I repaired (with my mitts) a Thule Frontier my wife wedged under the garage door econo. This was my first time using Oatey ABS adhesive. Drywall tape fiberglass and some elbow grease did the rest...

    The damage:

    This is the only beta on the dent. The box sat dented in the garage loft for almost a year. Ye Olde Youtube taught a kids that ABS plastic auto body can be easily manipulated with boiling water. A kettle and rubber mallet got it back "into shape" no problem.

    This was my greatest area of concern. The ABS sheeting had deviated more than the pictures show. I considered cutting off the top flap completely, I considered trying to pull the sheeting together with wires (See Supra Ye Olde Youtube), I considered giving up.

    Some shots of the first layer in the interior. With pliable, adhesive fiberglass it was relatively easy to get the sheetings to pull together/reform/line up on cracks that weren't as bad as the area of concern. I also ignored Ye Olde Youtube advice to remove the top half and re-rivet. I don't do riveting. sand/salt bags on sawhorses provided enough support to get the job done inside and out; base down and lid down.

    Actual fiber glass spreaders might have gone a long way here. I tried just the Oatey OEM cotton ball dip stick alone to flatten the fiberglass tape down at first, and an aftermarket dipstick might have helped out significantly as well. I ended up using a few cheap plastic putty knives, they were toast at the end.

    I used both a circular sander and a sponge. The Makita only got used for a minute, a 60grit sponges was plenty. Also, white gas for the camp stove really went a mile in cleaning/prepping the spots that got the love, thanks for the tip Ye Olde Youtube.

    This was my alternative to snipping and drilling wiring. The third picture above shows best the weight I put inside the lid to get the pressure and angle right for the scrap wood stints supported by the sand buckets.

    Lots of progress with just 1.5 layers of fiberglass and Oatey ABS cement on the interior side of the lid only with some stint jury-rigged pressure to assist.

    Note also the white gas for cleaning/prepping.

    Glassing on top. I did two layers on each side. It made for many recesses which became a minor problem later. But I wanted to have the rudimentary drywall tape fiberglass crossing in different directions for strength.

    Last layers and paint. I saw a "thick, fills gap" auto primer in Home Despot today. I wish I'd seen it when I was buying these cans.

    I'm not quite sold on the process, do you have any more photos to share? J/k, sincere props on keeping that out of the landfill! Nicely done.

    Can't even tell it's been repaired.

    Needed a new cabinet for musical electronics. Those are tough to find to my spec so I built one. Roughly kitchen counter height. Houses DJ controller up top, two slide out shelves for laptop and small mixer. Standard 19" rack gear can be mounted below that with random stuff on the bottom (need to get a small bin for that still). Rides on 4 locking casters. Nothing fancy but overall I am happy with the results.

    That looks incredible, is it particle board? We just used it for our built-ins. Couldn't believe how smoothly my ancient, dull table saw ripped the shelves to depth.

    I got stencils and another round of sanding and spraying...

    Wife couldnít find a coffee table that she liked and fit the space. She also liked the concrete look so I built this fucking monster. Doesnít look like much but thatís like 600 pounds.

    She just wanted it unfinished looking and with some imperfections so I didnít dye the concrete or do much with the base nor did I get rid of every air bubble.

    Needed 6 guys to get it in the house from the garage and I had to get under the house before and stuck an additional post under there to prevent sag. You just canít have a table like that and Ronteleís mom on the same floor.
