Anthony Watts displayed a number of Shaker boxes, finished with milk paint, that he made for Christmas presents.
Gaetjens brought in a Biltmore Stick
he constructed from Red Oak with Mahogany end caps and secured with popular
Tom Cowan discussed a small walnut table with lots of delicate and detailed inlays.
--------------- HAVING TROUBLE STAINING "END GRAIN " ? -------------
When applying liquid stains, the stain soaks more deeply into the pores of the end grain than the face grain, darkening the ends much more than the faces, see top photo below.
One way to even out the stain color is to sand the end grain with a higher-grit sandpaper than the face grain.
In the right photo below, the face is sanded with 220-grit and the end grain with 600-grit, resulting is a much better color match.
