Man, looks like you’re building a kitchen, that’s already wonderful. You’re going to have one heck of a cozy cave once you’re done with the expansion!

so you will have 13 different donut flavors, i would have bavarian cream top and center….lol..looks great randy, nothing like being organized, maybe you should add some color instead of white, white sounds boring to me, but its your shop…what are you doing for a top, you could add some vices…just an idea..

Griz, I plan on building a center stand alone work bench that will house my vises but.. I could put one on this bench, the top will consist of starting one sheet of 3/4 ply, a sheet of 1/2 ply and a top with masonite to give me 36”

These drawers are roughly 28” x 21” x 5” that’s a lot of donuts :)

Randy,

You probably have a color chosen. I used an off white in my main room w/a bank of multi frequency florescent lighting. The natural lighting comes from one large window on North side, where AC unit is. ( after many years of this i am trying to figure how to get more natural light and maintain security.)

In my add on room, where I went with OSB walls I primed both sides and then used a white semi gloss. Turned out well because I have no windows on that side for security reasons.

The more light in the shop that approximates sunlight the better are my chances of producing fewer mistakes. LOL! and my finishing is more consistent with natural lighting when working inside.

Dark colors psychologically change visual perspective.

I’m guessing you already know this …. :<)

Yep Tom, I’ve already purchased the paint, and also by painting I’m not going to have to mess with edge banding either, I see no point in edge banding if I’m going to paint over it. After speaking with the paint guy at Home depot he recommended this

Tom, I got it for $44 a can but it’s self priming so I don’t have to buy primer it sorta breaks even.

well i was thinking you would paint it a dark brown to add some difference in the room, white walls , brown cabinets….LOL just kidding randy, i bet things will be just fine…paint is getting pretty spendy, even at 44 bucks, things are just to expensive these days, that 44 bucks would buy a lot of bacon…lol…

Back!

Great concept. Hope it works. i’ve tried a primer/paint spray. Always stayed soft.

Anyway, the newness will be there for awhile, but you will be using the space and it will become background for your creativity!

Bob, you giving Randy a hard time? LOL!

Gotta change my clothes and work on my drill press table.

later LJ’s
