Very nice Randy…Your shop progress is taking shape each day. I know you’ve gotta be looking forward to every bit of it.

And you have a place for the shop vac! I kinda like the old bench Randy. It had character. Your new one is probably going to be more efficient. The door on the deck is what I call an “Oh Dah” moment. I have a number of those and tell myself “Back the Truck up!” Or “step away from the project, sir!”

Must be looking at it and seeing the end of the road?

Looking great Randy.
Mine is built exactly like that. This is an old photo … all drawers underneath now.

Thanks all, I almost hate to put paint on it but I’m weighing the options and paint will allow me to move faster and get back up and working quicker, very nice setup you got Paul.

i wanted windows, but for security reasons i kept solid walls, either that or have a spring shot gun, by each window, when we moved here there had been some recent break ins in the area….i wasnt going to put my investment at risk…now i just might take the whole think down

Randy,

If you haven’t opened the paint yet. A couple of coats of seal coat. Dries quick, and some water bourne poly. which also dries quick? The plywood has some character.

FWIW mine is all cheap birch plywood with several coats of waterborne poly (Flecto). Every few years I sand the top coat or two of poly and add a new one or two and it looks new again. It dries quick enough to get two or three coats on in a day.

Thanks for the finish suggestions, I’m going to go with a quick drying finish then, I’m sure it’s much cheaper too.

What I’m going to do is consider forgoing the edge banding on the ply and just apply the water based poly.

Randy,

Talked to Charles(Neil) about a finish for my Butt Bench/ truck step stool. His opinion was waterborne poly , once dried would work just as well as oil based.

I ‘m thinking a quart of seal coat, and a quart of waterborne poly would be at least 20 bucks cheaper? You can dilute the seal coat for staining.

A quick thin slice of pine can do for an edge? Had a bunch of waste ( 1/16th thin slices) I edged some plywod. Works! But sometimes I forget its just a jig, or a shop piece. LOL!
