Been complaining about bad days. I serve whine with my cheese!” LOL! I have been refurbishing a sofa for my re opened office. I also am making my office sign. Why? Cause I have more time now than money!
When I took the sofa apart to rub down the finish and fine sand some gouges, I found the webbing was breaking down. It might be funning in a comedy show but not in my office! Found webbing today at my Ace Hardware place in town. And brass grommets. Problem solved. I Screwed up the sign, and made a new one. The painting of the lettering is the tough part. After all I am a professional so no tacky lettering.
Got the sign background done and the heat is up in the shop to dry the paint. Also rubbed down the finish with 4 ought fine and matched the stain.
Hey haven’t screwed up …yet! LOL! Cleaned up and came in the house. Two clients lined up and one maybe. Relief!
And my final purchase of what I think are necessary tools came today…early! A 22 inch smoothing plane with a four star Amazon rating. Even negative criticism was good, and I got tired of waiting to find a Bailey #6 in good condition in my price range.
Soooo! tomorrow I will put a finish on the wood for the sofa. Thinking either water bourn poly or Tripp Danish oil? Any thoughts
Then I have a small desk for my small office that needs upgrading. It’s Art Deco. A found piece at my old resale shop. And I have a chair( needing repining that matches!
Then I can finish the office and get back to figuring out the shop!
How’s your day been?
