« Part 14: I am international. Oh yeah!!! Part 15 of dust stuff series Part 16: Greatest Project Continued »

I haven’t added to this blog in a while, life gets busy and all that. Plus I have been doing a lot of work with my angelfish when I am not in the shop or helping my kids with homework, so…. Well I guess our interests flow just as everything else does. I am still in the shop most days and I am getting more commissions weekly so that is good.

I once again have the chance to do a “project of a lifetime” What is this wonderful project you might ask? Well I guess it’s easier to show you with a picture.

Any of you who have had one of the pictures, knows that it’s the greatest project to be had. I now have 4 great life projects and I am so very grateful for them all.

As a father of three, I congratulate you on this wonderful project. Just curious, what type of finish do you plan to use on it???

-- ok, is it cut once measure twice, cut twice measure once???? I know....I'll just keep cutting until it's long enough.

While I was reading the comments I was thinking “so what finish is he going to use on this project”. Lo and behold – I get to the last two postings and they ask the same question. Now you do have to answer. Congratulations.

Thanks everyone. I was thinking Havard would be a nice finish, but it’s going to take a lot of boxes for a high-end finish like that. :-)

Is that a hand-rubbed-on finish? :) beware as these kinda projects are known for outgassing and spraying out liquids all over the place when excess moistening is applied. The exact process is currently unknown, but it happens almost every time. In particular, I’ve heard that applying French polish with talcum powder seems to be a major source of outgassing when the item is laid flat on a proper finishing table.
