In our newest video Chris Adams and Tom Monohan of General Finishes demonstrate how to update your existing cabinets with GF Water Based Wood Stain and Dye Stain with a technique called toning. Toning does not require any messy stripping or sanding. It involves combining a stain with a topcoat to create a transparent mix to apply to your previously finished cabinets.
Today we'd like to share with you this gorgeous table that was built and finished by Marion Lovett for his own home. This project was quite the challenge considering the table weighs in at about 800-900 lbs! It is 8" around and made of old oak barn wood. The bottom was timberframed in the traditional fashion with mortise, tenon and pegs. All General Finishes products were used to acheive this "medieval look".
What a beautiful day for Woodworker Wednesday! This week features Silvia Song, an artist and woodworker who seeks to combine form and function with beauty and simplicity in a truly minimalistic style. We can't get enough of those gorgeous hand-turned and indigo-dyed maple bowls!
Water Based Dye Stain penetrates deep into the wood and magnifies the grain beautifully. It also provides your project with more depth and color vibrancy than any other GF stain. This product is excellent for highly figured woods like mahogany, walnut, or birds eye maple.
