This is a remodeling project taken on by a DIY homeowner and shared with us from our Dayton Woodcraft store. Although this may not be their “forever” home, Jane & Eugene are sprucing up every room in the house for that future sale. Knowing that, this couple finds ways to keep within their budget while giving their home that special touch on a classy high-end level. We begin in the kitchen with a before shot revealing a much needed makeover. From what Jane calls her “disco bowling alley” kitchen with it’s old style counter tops, pictured next to the finished product complete with butcher block counter tops, we’ll show you how they did it, specifically the counter tops.
Over the last decade, the editors of Woodcraft Magazine have seen and reviewed a multitude of new products. Some simply represented an attempt to build a better mousetrap, but a few have made fresh impressions on the woodworking world, and we’re betting that they are likely to continue making ripples for years to come.
Perfect with one exception! Too amber!
For nearly 20 years I've used water based finishes on my guitars. Water base has come along way and this finish is proof. It's relatively easy to use, sands level and buffs wonderfully, dries quickly, and is very resistant to scratches and chipping. My only issue with it is that the amber tone is not natural in some situations. This probably would not be an issue for most wood projects. GF makes a similar finish (item # 149272) that is water clear but it is not quiet as durable. I would love to see a version of Enduro-Var that is water clear.
Excellent water-based Urethane
Finally, a water-based clear finsh that can totally replace all my favorite solvent-based products! You can color-sand in 12 hours, and the flow out is the best I've seen. I have not sprayed yet, but can't wait. The hardness reminds me of an automotive clear. Amazing!
Fantastis - Nothing to compare it to
This stuff makes a so-so finisher look like a Pro. It is fantastic.
