  • oven pull finishes???

    what type of finishin can i use on an oven pulll? i figure i can stain it, but not quite sure if i should shellac or polyurethane, or what, to complete?

    Shellac doesn't like the heat.
    I usually just use oil or oil based stain depending on if I want to change the color of the wood. Once dry spray furniture wax. A nice smooth wood finish looks good after it's been used awhile too.

          I use Deftoil. It is basically a Danish oil product.

              I only cut them from hardwoods so I leave mine unfinished. Oily is right. Shellac hates heat and water. Oil finishes need refinishing every once in a while varnish is a possible choice...why. The natural wood by itself is beautiful and will get a nice coating of cooking grease as the years go by removing the necessity of you putting an oil finish on them. But that's just my opinion.

              A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

                Could you make oven pullers out of MDF ?

                  Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                  Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                  Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
