Re: Michigan Squirt Build

as some one that uses aniline dyes almost daily. they will raise the grain, some times quite a bit.


I would avoid the ones that use water as the solvent and get either the alky or spirts kind. they will fade over time unless you seal them with some that has a uv blocking component.

Re: Clinton or Trump?

The funny part about this is not Hillary nor Trump, it is Comey (FBI guy). Totally true... Mr. Comey's pretzel logic has likely cooked his own goose no matter which way the vote goes. This election boils down to putting an end to "In your Face" corruption, preserving the integrity of the ...

Re: interesting use of red oak

I find his videos to be absolutely captivating! That video surprised me, specifically his use of RA.......insofar as he has other videos that clearly show the problems with RA. its a cheap working boat, that is not designed to last for ever. no reason to use white oak for something like that. its l...

retrofiting clamps

I would rather not use my good clamps( read that as the clamps I make my living with) when it comes to building a boat. I was on youtube not too long ago watching one of my fav wood workers retro fitting clamps. any one try this?
