myersbr2 Okay woodworkers, I need your input. I'm making matching bookshelves out of red oak for my kids. When making the last crosscut for the two tops I found this. The crack is small but obvious. Everything is still solid but what can I do to salvage this? I thought maybe opening up the crack a bit, filling it with wood glue then clamping it. Any better ideas? Total thickness of the top is 7/8". #woodworker #crack #wood #redoak #bookshelves @jaybates86 @bjmacwoodwork @nickferrybuilds 2h
  •   bjmacwoodwork If the crack isn't very deep, just glue it. Otherwise, rip it off and laminate on another piece in its place. 2h
  •   nickferrybuilds CA glue or epoxy. If you go the epoxy route you can add some filler to give it some color. Either that or mortise out a matching grain piece and make a small patch. Hope that helps. 2h
  •   myersbr2 Thank you @bjmacwoodwork and @nickferrybuilds. I follow along all the time and it's nice to know I can also get input in the rare instance I get stuck. 2h

wmwalkerco This #liveedge #redoak desktop is almost done. A little more sanding and some finish. How do you think I should finish it? BLO/spar urethane/mineral spirits? Wiping Varnish? Arm-r-seal? Danish oil?

  •   jeffreycgleason Love this . Wish I knew what all those things are. But it looks good already. Can't wait to see it all finished up 3h
  •   chedballz I'd go with something light. Linseed or Teak oil rub down would do it. 3h

themissjenn One coat of finish left to go + adding the finishing moldings that I custom stained and my house can finally go back together (until we start on the living room installation )! #remodel #hardwood #hardwoodfloors #redoak #midcentury #beforeandafter #hgtv #interiordesign #diy 7h
