    I am carving greenwood. Can I be able to stain and finish while it is curing?

    Re: Greenwood

    My Opinion.. Yes and No ???
    I have a walking stick I turned while green and finished with poly over 30 years ago and it looks great, never cracked.
    But I have carved some green wood and finished it the same way and it cracked the next day. I guess it depends on the wood ! I would say to go ahead and carve the piece and let it dry for a while then fill any cracks and then finsh it !
    Good Luck !

      After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

      At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

      I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
      Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
