  2. refinishing sewing machine cabinets

When removed, just wipe on your favorite finish (I like than wipeable poly satin varnish) and you're done. Much easier than messing with stripper, etc. I used to own a refinishing shop so have used this very often. Good luck!

You can also order the water soluble anilind dye I mentioned in the refinishing a cabinet above. I usually order the brown walnut for the oak and the walnut cabints. Mix the dye with denatured alcohol as stated in the instructions on the dye. Pour a cup in a container and add two or three table spoons orange shellac to the stain and stir well.

I try to keep the piece as original looking as I can. I always prefer to restore rather than refinish unfortunately refinishing is a must on many sewing cabinets.

  9. Visit to PH doctor today

    by , 11-02-2011 at 02:09 PM
    Today was bad news. The doctor said he thinks I have Pulmonary Venous Hypertension, which is now being discovered as another diabetic disorder related metabolic syndrome. The bad news is there is no effective treatment for it. The treatments that are helping PAH, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension actually make PVH worsen. Where does that leave me?

    I really don't know. Untreated PH leads to CHF very quickly. All I know is that right now it is miserable to breathe, I stay exhausted. ...
