  • glue removal

    can some one tell me how they remove their patterns after without leaving fuzzies from the cloth. I find that when I spray clear coat on my projects that it leaves fine hairs that are noticable. Any suggestions would be a help.
    thanks kes

    Kes, I use Mineral Spirits to remove the pattern and if I feel any glue residue on the wood I use a little more MS and wipe off with a lint free rag. If by chance I notice any fibers after spraying on the finish I use a super fine sanding pad (found at my local hdwe) to touch up those rough spots or knock the fibers off.

      Kes, I sand the wood to 320 or 400 grit then apply lavender masking tape to the wood. Then glue the pattern to the tape. I can leave it on the wood for days and not have a problem removing the tape and pattern.

        I use the same process as Paul except that I substitute fine store bought sand paper with a section of paper bag for the final touch up.

          He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

          Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

          I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

          You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
