What type power planer creates this "scooped out" distressing look? I was originally told a "curved planer" but all of them I have looked into create the wider planed out look. This is a 'scooped" out look almost like spooning out the wood. Is there a specific planer tool or blade to go on a power planer that does this look?
Thank you in advance.
I have a table for my green egg made out of redwood and cedar - it is just sanded and has a coat of poly. It sits outside (in the Dallas Tx Area) on my covered patio so not in direct sunlight or direct rain. I just want to know what is the best way to clean and maintain it - is there so sort of oil i need to use.
I’m a complete novice when it comes to working with wood. I found an old trunk in my basement that I’m trying to sand down and refinish. I started the sanding process and noticed a strange, light colored zebra pattern running diagonal across the natural grain. Any ideas what this is and how to correct it? I assume because it’s lighter, it will absorb the stain differently and won’t look very good. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Hello! My partner and I are looking to create a product but unfortunately I'm afraid we may not be able to keep up with demand. Does anyone know of any mass production facilities that allow for the order (kitting or full manufacture) of custom cabinets or drawers? Please send responses to email@example.com
company installed 3ply parquet flooring in November 2018. In February 2019 I raised the claim.
I found maybe 50 spots with similar issue on 80m2. One room where floor heating is not, I cannot see the issue.
We have floor heating and floor is glued on.
Instruction for this flooring (attached) says it cannot be glued on due to lock type - my understanding.
Flooring guys say every wood floor can be glued on.
They proposed to correct those places. But nobody told us what is wrong and if it can repeat later elsewhere. (two years warranty :-()
I am building a table. The farm style table is made with crappy pine from home depot. I need to remove material on the top of the table to smooth it out. Can I use a 60 grit belt sander than switch to an 80 grit orbit 120 then 220?
My job consists of building 13 foot crates with pre-cut wood, however sometimes this wood sits on the side if too much is ordered, after a while when it finally comes to the floor it has all kinds of mold ranging from green, black, and some sort of white web like substance, some of the wood turns blue/purple/pink aswell, is any of this harmful to breathe in or use? (No pictures available since I can't my phone on the floor)
I am not a woodworker, but I wonder if you can help me.
I have 2 pieces of 4 x 6 hardwood at 80 inches long, and 2 pieces of 4 X 6 hardwood at 40 inches long. I also have one butcher block at 18 by 25. These are all solid wood. I wonder what kind of table can be made from these pieces.
I am hoping to make a simple table of these dimensions and am willing to buy more pieces if necessary: 40 inches height by 36 inches width by 25 inches depth.
