Thanks Al. I watched as much of that 23 minutes of Charles Neil as I could stand - he sounds/looks like a 2:00 AM infomercial:fie:. I dug further into the 'net to see if others had reviewed it and for the most part it got decent or better discussions but with the caveat from a few that it did cover some of the wood natural figuration. Since I do like working with maple, poplar and pine, the three woods most mentioned will probably give it a try next time. I just wish it was easier/less expensive to source then $19 plus shipping.
Del - thanks for your input.i use the blotch control all the time, on maple you may have to stain a couple time's ? i use it on cherry , or on all the wood's , it work's very well , have used it sence it came out, i guess if you don't like his voice turn off sound, and watch a silent movie, that what it used to be, in the olden days'
