      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

  1. I carve large scale carousel animals and would like to finish my next two projects clear coat to emphasize the wood. The issues being similar with those of boats, I thought I could get some good advice on what to use as the options at Jamestown Distributors are more that extensive. These pieces will be carved of basswood (very fine grain) and I likely will want to deepen the wood with a transparent stain. Destiny is likely indoors, but very long lasting clear finish that stands up to some abuse would be desireable. Ease of application will be a factor, I will not lie. Advice and suggestions appreciated. Sky carver
