I have used Minwax and Formby products for a long time. They work well and are readily available. This time I need a true penetrating stain and I bought stain and urethane from Cabot. They are a bit thicker but have great control and I got a great final finish in two coats. (With steel wool buffing between) Check out Cabot products for your next meditation/refinishing project.

The publishing business is nuts. Both real and ethereal bookshelves are crammed with every subject imaginable. Many books are duplicated and they seem to all run together after a while. This is my first shot at the blog-thing and I would like to share thoughts on what I am reading with others who are thoughtful about what they are reading. I am a Christian and a pastor. You can sort out your baggage on what that means to you. I don't fit neatly into anyone's box but don't apologize about my faith or its impact on my viewpoint. My tastes are varied though I do read mostly about leadership, spiritual formation, history and biographies. Some times trashy fiction sneaks in every now and then. I don't fear discussing things that are different or even provocative to what I believe-though I loathe mindless pokings from the controversies of the day. I hope to dialog about things that are interesting, whether new, old, downloaded or dusty shelf sitters. I would like hear about things from recreation and hobbies too.
