  2. WTH!! I just looked up the watco walnut Danish oil for ASH. I live in Maine and I have a great supply of it!!
    Then I happened to your video from 2014 about ash!! Great work keep rocking it!!

  3. Well it's your home shop. I guess you're allowed to wear thongs there! 0:08 😉
    Seriously though, this video is a MASTER Class on everything about walnut. From the tree itself to a master class in finishing it. Well done!

  4. Thanks for such a great explanation of so many things about Walnut. I have a few slabs in the basement for a few years now not really knowing what to do with it, plus how to finish it correctly, because its expensive, especially here in Ontario Canada I didn't want to screw it up. So your video really helps me a lot in determining what way to go with finishing it. I love that wood filler, man that makes such a difference, I cant believe my eyes when you showed that. I've never seen that product here, so now I need to look around. I could go on and on here, GREAT stuff, and yep, i'm new to your channel….for sure I subscribed. Thanks again.

  5. After you fill it and wet sand varnish it, then let it fully cure and comeback and sand with 600-800. Then varnish (preferably with a solvent varnish because the chemistry drys harder than WB) and varnish 3-5 more times sanding each coat progressively up to 2000-3000 grit. Smaller pieces work best (tea caddy, jewelry box, pie crust tables, clocks). It's an intoxicating look.

  6. how handheld caving scoops and gouges and flat blades, walnut has a pleasurable craving feel to it. carves smooth in all blade edge to grain directions.

  7. Great information! One thing however. Your videos have a extremely high pitch screaming in the background. It's either electrical noise or the microphone. I am watching on a Yamaha surround receiver on my big screen and it is terrible. Might want to investigate.

  8. I’m so glad i stumbled upon your videos I’m an amateur wood worker but absolutely love it. You can find videos everywhere about how to work with wood but your one of the very few I’ve found who talks about what woods to use where and you have a wealth of knowledge on all species. Very informative looking forward to more videos

  9. Hi, I want to buy the home depot european walnut solid wood butcher block and use it as a computer desk. I want it semi glossy and matte. I will be putting a monitor clamp arm with three monitors and a computer tower on it. I don't want to wait a month to use it either. What do you suggest the best combo of finishers that will show the beauty / contrast and shortest time to use that can handle computer desk usage?

  10. Awesome tips. Thanks!

    I am building an edge-grain walnut kitchen Island top. All aggressive cutting and chopping will be done on a cutting board, but I may occasionally cut lightly on the island top for cutting or trimming things like rolled out pasta dough. Any trips for a good finished in those circumstances? (It it 'earns' a worn look over time from use and the occasional cut mark, I'm fine with that. But I don't want a cut mark to suddenly create an area where the finished is now ruined, or wil be ruined if a any moisture gets into the cut. I should also say that it will not be near any running water, but will inevitably have some moisture exposure – wet items, condensation from a cold jar or glass, etc.)

    Any tips/suggestions would be great appreciated. Cheers!

  11. dude your channel deserves a lot more subscribers, I am new to wood working and I have learnt so much from your channel. Thank you

  12. Another thing — it is hard to go wrong, never had bad outcomes even w suboptimal walnut, branches, reusing stereo component sides, etc etc. Makes great cutting boards. Even butternut is good, albeit it light. I have a ton of it, thick desks, beds, tables, sculpture, etc etc etc.

  13. Very informative about finishes — fussy, but informative. One finish that is slightly harder (with enough applications) than anything tung-based is minwax AOF (Antique Oil Finish), a polymerized linseed, gives a slight golden tone to walnut (also comes in dark, but is too dark imo, as is the one he shows and likes and uses!), and if you do several applications of MAOF you wind up w oil poly hardness but smoother and needing less application care (no need for still early-morning air, e.g.).

    (I have no connection to Minwax.)
