Shop Safety Learn our simple tips for dealing with flammable furniture finishing materials and put a lit on workshop fires.
By its very nature, woodworking is a somewhat dangerous hobby—and it's not just about the sharp bits and blades.
Most of the finishing supplies we use on a daily basis are highly flammable, and disposing of oily rags and old jars of finish involves more than just tossing those items into a trash can (don't ever do that).
Problems with errant glue can be grouped under three headings:
avoiding glue squeeze-out in the first place; planning for squeeze out; and removing glue when it does squeeze out.
Woodworkers have access to all sorts of modern and traditional adhesives, but for the purpose of this article I'll deal with the most common glue, polyvinyl acetate (PVA), also known as aliphatic resin, which comes in white and yellow forms.
An Inspring Documentary from Fine Woodworking Either I wear my heart on my sleeve or the production team that put this video together did one hell of a good job.
Eric Hollenbeck is a 66 year-old Vietnam veteran and owner/operator of Blue Ox Millworks This 10-minute documentary, brilliantly produced by Ben Proudfoot and Breakwater Studios is jaw-dropping in its beauty, musical score, and story.
If you watch only one woodworking-related documentary for the next year, make it this one.
