    Commented to ask one about shellac – and then got to the part of the video where you learn shellac is a subset of varnish! These are so great.

    Hello Bob, I have a little request for you, as a French, I have some difficulties to find the name in my language for the tools you use. Could you make a Bit video with the name of you main tools writed on screen ? Like this I can use Google Translate to find the name of the tool and buy one maybe ? Thank you very much !

    Doesn't the -crylic in polycrylic actually refer to that it is an acrylic finish not a polyurethane? Or am I reading into things too much? I thought only oil based polyurethane was actually polyurethane and water based "poly" is actually acrylic.

    This was really cool to further understand but, could you add some examples of how they endup?

    Mr. Bob, I'm working on a pine outdoor table that will be mostly under a tent/gazebo. Is there a particular product you recommend to protect it from the elements? I live in MA.

    I was thinking about coating it with danish oil and then epoxy. Would love to hear your thoughts.
    Thanks!

    your bits video is what every producer should be doing. as someone who is self taught and trying my best to branch into nearly every type of craftsmanship these are incredibly useful

    Thank you for being the one to make a concise video on this! (Apologies to anyone who has who I missed)

    This was incredibly helpful and I already see how I’m going to apply the knowledge to my next project.

    Wait, is polyurethane a varnish? I missed something.

    Polyurethane is the shiznit. In one form, used to glue your windshield on. In other forms, gorilla glue. Polyurethane is a good compromise between strength and flexibility. I've used it to secure safes. One of which I had to destroy to remove because my key broke.

    BUT the real question: is left-handed poly better than 80 grit lacquer?
