finish for carved "throne" type chair

I am building a throne(for lack of a better word) out of cherry wood for a client that will then intricately carve a scene of an old west bank robbery on it.  Sheriff's posse, outlaws, rocks, horses, you get the idea.  We were discussing what type of finish to put on it that would be very durable and easy to apply to the carved detail, I suggested lacquer with some dark glazing to make the carving "pop".Does anybody have experience with such a project and if so what would be a long lasting,…See More

"Well, I bit the bullet and have just finished the first week running my new 43" Speed Sander, WOW!  This machine performs just as well as the bigger machines that I have used and for a fraction of the cost.  It is all but maxing out…"

"You will be happy with tht timesaver. I've been running a 3phase 20 hp on a static phase converter for 4 years and no problems. static phase converters are a bit cheaper than a rotory as long as your machine is not computer controlled."

Wide belt sander dilema

Hello fellow saw dust farmers,  I am looking to upgrade my shop with a wide belt sander.  There is NOT 3 phase power so I am trying to decide between the 2 single phase machines that I have found.  Timesavers 36" "Speed sander" ($8500)and the Extrema ES-137 ($9500).  Is anybody familiar with either of these machines and how do they perform?  Am I making a mistake by not going with one of the 3 phase machines powered by a phase converter?Thanks-MikeSee More

"I can't speak from personal experience, but I've visited several shops with the Speed Sander that were quite happy with the results they got for the price they paid."

"Remove rust with elbow grease, coat with Penetrol, let that dry and then wax with furniture paste wax once a month. The Penetrol really seals the metal."

"Thanks everyone for the input! I ended up using Aeromarine epoxy mixed with wood powder (also provided by Aeromarine) to create a filler. It was definately in the realm of experimentation but worked out quite well after we figured out a system. The…"

"Will the timbers be outside or inside. I work for a glulam manufacturer and we make big timbers with D. fir. Checking as it is called will happen. Unless they were kiln dried in a Vacuum kiln they will split. 24" x 24" is very big and will…"
