March 2009 meeting: Three ways to a beautiful finish

This meeting was opened by Jeff Brown with 8 new members present.  Jeff discussed our participation in The Woodworking Show in Edison this month. Paul Weber gave us his input about dyes, stains, and finish techniques. Matt Greco talked about how he applies shellac. Marc Gaertner went over his process of applying wipe on and aerosol polyurethane.  Roger Ackerman made a home electroplating rig to extract rust from iron. The components necessary are a bucket, with a steel anode as a positive and the work as the negative attached to a low amperage battery charger or rectifier. The solution Roger used was sodium carbonate and water. the results were quite pleasing. Some links related to the process are provided by Roger are listed below.
