This is all the good with none of the bad. Wood that is beautiful, with consistent color, and nearly everlasting durability. If you’ve never heard of Teekri, you are in for a treat.

My New Favorite Dust Masks

My-New-Favorite-Dust-MasksIn My New Favorite Dust Masks, I’ll introduce you to my newest favorite piece of PPE. The dust mask can get a bad reputation because most of them are not comfortable, and they make the air humid. Not these.

After being given a box to check out, I can’t believe how good these masks actually are. I’ve used several masks in the past, and they were all about the same, but these are much better.

It’s all about making the mask comfortable, so you’ll wear it. That’s where these guys really nailed their product.

Sealing Wood After Staining

A good sealer makes a difference, and though you can do without if you want, you should really see both before making your decision.

After reading this post, you’ll know why to use top coats, and when you can skip them on your stained woodworking projects.
