Default I Sure Found A Great Friend

Flirst of all, I want to tell the members of this forum how much I have appreciated the help and encouragement that I have received from being a member. Recnetly I began to correspond privately with one of our members. I will not tell you his name but we e-mail each other almost daily and exchange information about what each of us is working on. This man is dealing with a real crisis in his life at the present time and I do hope that his and my friendship are of some value to him as he deals with his situation. He is a very experienced woodworker among others things and has been, and continues to be a great help and encouragement to me with what I am trying to do. Hs is just full of great ideas and so willing to share them with me.

Presently I am working on a small table that is made of walnut. I sent him a photo of the table top which has some whiteish sap wood in it and he has suggested that I find some "pure walnut stain" that can be used to blend the light wood with the darker wood. I have ask him where I can find such a product and am waiting for his response to my question. Wonder if anyone reading this thread has any ideas along this line. My friend has express a real dislike for Midwax as it is not pure and will not do what paure stain will do.

One other point that I would like to ask about is in regard to the forum, recently I started a thread in which I asked about how to find the place where one can start a new thread but I did not get any response to it, or if I did, I missed it. Right now in order to start a new thread I have to scroll clear down to the bottom of the site and click on a subject, ususally "tools and woodworking: then when I scroll back up the block with "New Thread" can be seen and I go from there. Now this is O.K. if this is the only way to start the new thread, but it seem pretty ackward in light of how much effort has gone into setting this site or forum up. If somebody will give me a glue on this issue I sure would appreciate it. Thanks in advance and also any points on the pure walnut stain will also be very welcome.

Jerry

That is one way to do it Jerry, and usually the easiest.

The only change is to click on "RouterForums.Com" at the top left of the page. This will take you to the home page where all the sub forums are listed.

It would seem that you are starting on a page which is not the home page and this may be confusing. I would get into the habit of going back to the home page before you go out of the forum. Just me....

Walnut stain- Sorry but I had to share this with you... I had a friend who was from Riverside, California. His family had walnut orchards. Somehow during harvest, they pick the walnuts, take off the pulpy part of the fruit and keep the nuts. The pulpy parts all went into this wagon that went behind a tractor, where they would haul it back out to dump.

Well the pulp was stuck to the sides. Someone would have to get into the wagon from time to time to break it free. My friend said he got up in the wagon and was kicking it free... And he slipped as it all broke free at once. He was completely covered in walnut pulp. He said he had the nicest tan that summer!

You mean that kind of a-natural walnut stain? Or is "that" a little more natural than you are looking for?

Hi, Jerry.

I had a similar experience with one member of this forum. Without knowing me, he was willing to give me a hand to get a tool and some accesories at USA. After several e-mails he took the issue for him giving to me some valuable recomendations and sending the tools to my country.

As you wrote, I find a friend here.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!
