Renowned turner, Keith Lackner creates a Salt and Pepper Mill Matching Set with Woodcraft's WoodRiver pre-drilled mill kits. Making a salt/pepper mill is an enjoyable project that produces a useful kitchen tool or a great “anytime” gift! The biggest obstacle to making a salt/pepper mill of any size is drilling the stepped through hole.

When a refurbishing project crosses my path, I listen to what the client’s requests are. After taking inspection of the project, there comes to mind a host of questions before ever working on the item. Repairing the item based on sight or conversing with obvious questions to the owner is just the beginning of providing a solution. There are additional concerns that will help the project restoration. Understanding the connection of the piece to the client, such as what the item means to them; what the environment will be in its placement and surroundings; and attaining a clearer perception of the history, as well as the heritage of the piece; can also be important.

    I love it !!!

    This is the first time I've used General Finishes produts and I find them easy to use with excellent coverage and low volatile elements ( not much odor). However both cans arrived with major physical damage to the cans, looked like someone played football with them; but, no leaks and I was in a hurry so I used them. I will use these produts for my future DIY woodworking.

    Outstandingly easy and looks great

    Built replacement cabinets for my kitchen. Used it to clear coat the plywood sides and Maple trim and door. Kitchen really shines.

    Awesome product! Highly recommended.

    This is my new favorite product. Even though I put "Not cheap" in the Cons section, I do believe that you get what you pay for. I applied 5 coats of Arm-R-Seal over one coat of Seal-A-Cell on beachwood, sanding between coats. Since this is wiped on, there are no brush marks, streaks, etc. It does get sticky, so wear gloves. I used this in the middle of a TX summer (90` in the garage) and had no problems.

    Outstanding wipe on finish

    I use Arm R Seal over a first coat of Seal A Cell for all my boxes and small tables, it takes 5 to 8 coats but it's worth it!

    Nice finish, easy to apply

    I've used this finish in two projects to date - on cabinetry and raised panel woodworking in my billiard room and recently when refinishing old kitchen cabinets in my ski house. Product produces a hard, streak and run-free finish, wiped on with a rag. Requires 3 coats buffed in between, as they apply thinly. The finished product looks fantastic.
