        There's some serious sawdust generated in that collection!
        Good looking work. Shame the government has taken away your finishing options.

          Have you tried mineral oil with denatured alcohol? I use mineral spirits but you can’t get that either, right? That’s all I ever use. I mix it 50/50 or 40/60.

            Cannot get denatured alcohol is outlawed in CA. “Mineral spirits” (paint thinner) is a petroleum product and does not work with shellac. I can get the shellac which I think will make a great finish.

              Lots of nice work John.

              On my ornaments I have been using a 50/50 mix of Zinser sanding sealer and alcohol. If it raises the grain a bit I just kiss it with a 240 mac mop.
              Been doing this for many years.

                Does that work on unpainted wood as a finish Rolf? The mineral oil doesn’t make the finish shiny, it just brings out the grain. My customer really like it and it is a cheap finish.

                    Betty not shiny, I just like sealing the wood. John Everclear the choice for spiking punch. Wicked stuff. I didn't realize it was no longer available.

                      You may want to check out Target Coatings they make water based finishes. I used their EM6000 water based lacquer and was surprised how well it worked. It dried fairly quick so multiple coats in one day wasn't an issue and it was easy to clean the spray gun since it only requires soapy water.

                        When Bruce finishes his grinders, he uses the same water base stuff he put on the kitchen cabinets. After a few coats he uses the renaissance wax and buffs on the lathe as a final coat.

                          I just started using this water based poly with great results. Dries in minutes. I have not attempted to brush it but I spray it on using HVLP finishing sprayer i got from Rockler.

                            Using a spray gun seems like a lot of work to setup, spray and clean the gun, unless you have a larger project.

                              Totally agree for one project. I think that this is where my ADHD brain helps. I usually end up with numerous project waiting finish. When the weather is right I take them outside and spray. The water based poly is nice because cleanup is little more than running warm water through the spray until.

                                Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                                • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                                Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
