      I use Tung oil on most of my project, and if I want a real nice shine after 2 coats of Tung oil I spray a light coat of shellac

        I second Paul's use of Deft semigloss. Another way to really give it a shine is wax with a cloth buffing wheel, if it is such that the wheel doesn't catch on the wood.

          When people come into ArtCrafters and ask about a scroll saw, I say it is similar to a sewing machine except with small blades.

          I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs.

          Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.
