Popular Woodworking in America Recap

Furnished content.


Popular Woodworking in AmericaI’ve just gotten caught up on work (and made a dent in myDutch tool chest build) after Popular Woodworking in America last weekend, and I wanted to recap my experience at the conference. With so many great speakers and a marketplace that begged to empty my wallet, it’s hard to pick my favorite aspects of PWIA.

Furnished content.


brush-lifts-stainThis may have happened to you. It’s surely happened to me. When you’re brushing a finish, the brush picks up some of the stain and lightens the wood. It’s even worse when the brush picks up so much stain that it leaves streaks. The first solution to try is to let the stain dry longer.
