I don’t live in an area with any woodworking stores, so I took advantage of being near a big city to visit alll the stores and stock up on stuff. Here’s a picture of the goods.

Included was:

  1. General Finishes Gel Stain – Java
  2. General Finshes Arm-R-Seal – Gloss
  3. Flush Trim Saw
  4. Birch Iron-On Banding
  5. Kreg Pocket Hole Screws
  6. 35 mm forstner bit
  7. X-acto knife
  8. X-acto #11 modified blades
  9. 3/8” Plug Cutter
  10. 1/8” round over router bit
  11. 320 grit sanding sheets
  12. 4” glue roller

Most of this is to help me finish a built-in desk I’m working on. Can’t wait to get ‘em covered in saw dust.

Aren’t woodworking stores the best? It’s like walking into the catalogs that you have been getting in the mail!

One of my favorites is the WoodSmith store in Des Moines, IA. I feel like I am making a trip to Mecca every time that I go there.

I see you got a Whiteside bit. Whiteside and CMT are my favorites.

Looks like a good collection. I love general finishes. I also use X-acto knives for all of my marking.

-- Happy woodworking!

I like going up and down every asile more than once just in case I missed something the first time.
