Some of you have been woodworking for a long time (you know who you are) and I’m sure you’ve got tips and tricks that you could share. There’s a whole generation of up-and-coming woodworkers who would love to have a piece of the experience you’ve gained.
Use the comment section below to drop a tidbit of knowledge. It’s for the greater good.
I’ll start us off with this tip I found in the latest issue of Woodworker’s Journal. I’ve included it below.
APPLY WIPE-ON POLY WITH COTTON PADS IN PANTYHOSE
I used to use balled-up cotton rags to apply wipe-on poly, but I’ve recently discovered a much better applicator. All you need are a bag of those inexpensive, circular make-up remover pads and some old knee-high pantyhose. I slip two or three of these cotton pads inside the stocking and wrap up the excess. The cotton accepts a good charge of poly that’s still easy to control, and the pantyhose keeps the cotton fibers out of the finish coat. It also lays down a nice, level coating without streaks.
Ok, your turn. Whatcha got? Comment below.
