I have never taken psychedelic drugs before but I feel like that Woodshimmer video could be close to the feeling. I was not ready for that at 8am.

Look up “The Furniture Guys” or “Furniture to Go” on YouTube – they always had an upholstery segment on the show. Real traditional, using horse haaar and tacks. This is also where I learned about a “spit coat” of shellac for finishing.

Guests at the Embassy Suites during WIA in 2013 got a first-hand demonstration of oily rags spontaneously combusting. Most of us (except Marc) were dragged out of bed by fire alarms at 2am. Turns out the culprit was a pile of oily rags in the kitchen. Luckily, they were only smoldering and hadn’t flared up, so we were all able to make it to Roy’s morning presentation.

Hey Guys, I just wanted to comment on Michael’s rust question. I live in Florida, about 2 miles from the water. The humidity here is always sky high. That being said, I have a wall hanging tool cabinet, and I have no issues with rust on any of my tools. Every once in a while I rub wax on my tools, maybe once a year. Also, I did Paul seller’s can with a rag saturated with 3 in 1 oil. I just rub that over my main tools every couple weeks. Thanks!
