HELP! I'm adrift, and being swallowed into the whirlpool! If I make one more bowl, I'm going to end up 20,000 leagues under the sea, Doorlink will make sure of that!
To charm her into acquiescence, I need to make cathedral cabinet doors for her kitchen. I tried making a template for one, but it wasn't good enough, so it looks like I'll be ordering some. Do you have a preferred vendor for this kind of thing? I know woodcraft and rocklersell them for around 60 bucks, but I'd rather throw money to a small vendor, if they have good stuff. Any ideas?
Also, I clearly need a drill chuck for the tailstock of the lathe. It takes an MT2. Someone said to get a jacobs chuck, but it turns out that's a company, not a standard. Any thoughts on where to get one? CHEAP?
Last... my son's graduating from college with a degree in music. I ordered a guitar kit. It's arrived. I can figure out how to assemble it, no prob. But the first step is finishing the body. Now, I usually use a mix of 1/3 each BLO, poly, and Naptha. Lately, I've been using shellac on spinny things, with an overlay of bowling alley wax. Not sure either would work very well on a guitar base. Please, please send advice on a good (and fast... he graduates next week) finish which will preserve the incredible beauty of the quilted maple!
