I read somewhere that Moses Ts would lift any water ring off a piece of furniture. Here is my question, I have a small oak dresser that a was recently molded on the top (vaporizer). It has lost its sheen and now has little black mold spots. Do you have any suggestions on how I can fix it?
I recently purchased a copy of your book “Shellac, Linseed Oil, and Paint”. It is by far the most informative and enjoyable book on finishing that I have read. I will be ordering the book on hide glue as soon as funds are available. I have worked in the painting and restoration business in Charleston, SC. for a number of years, but the past two years I have been redirecting the business to antique furniture restoration and finishing. I am trying to specialize in traditional hand applied finishes and wood turning. Your website has been extremely helpful and a source of inspiration. Are you currently selling powdered pigments? They are not listed under the Full Chisel Store, but I noticed them on the website’s product line. If not, could you recommend a source. Any direction you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Forgive my ignorance, but what does this product do? (The pistol grip handsaw tang). I can’t figure it out for the life of me.
Also, I’m 48 and my eyes are becoming less efficient. But it also seems like your website’s font is set so much smaller than most. I have a horrible time reading the descriptions of your tools. Any chance you could bump the size of the type up a little?
If I make the images larger they don’t work for some servers, try increasing the size of the font/page on your computer.
The pistol grip tang is for making your own saws with a pistol grip or straight handle typical of early saws.
Yea Stephen! clock turns. Interesting thing about the bow lathe is that I understand a clock of clock and watchmakers used them well up into modern times because you can do surprisingly accurate work. I’ve recently been taken with this idea that we’re all caught up in thinking that if we’re going to do a little clockmaking, the first thing we do is go out and buy some expensive new lathe. What we really ought to do is take a step back and construct something from the past and get on down the road and make something. So, I guess I’m not so much interested in using tools of the past because they’re authentic, I’m interested because they might make a whole lot of sense. Well, sorry to go on a bit here, but why not save a whole lot of money, learn a whole lot of skill, and hang out in the past a bit…
