  • Gift for Benji

    This has also been posted on the other two forums, sorry if I am repeating myself to some of you.

    I finished this name train today and it will be delivered tomorrow. The wood is red oak and it was from a tree that fell down in a neighbors yard about 4 years ago, someone slabbed it and it was in pretty bad shape. I ran it throught my drum sander to flatten one side then went to the planer to thickness it to just under 3/4 inch. I applied 2 coats of Watco oil and then our friend Rattle Can Lacquer. Benji's birthday was put on the caboose using vinyl letters, the finished piece is about 40 inches long. We hope the next baby our friends have will be named something like Al or Tom.

    This is a variation of one of Steve Good's patterns---Thank you Steve.

    I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

    Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
    How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

    Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way. Where does the responsibility of the maker of an item end and the responsibility of the purchaser begin? My sealife puzzle is purchased by older people due...
