I was supposed to visit a small saw mill about 80 miles north of me but I don’t have a truck. I was going to use our family van but Martha took my daughter to a Christmas parade and made an entire day of it. I got stuck at home so I worked on the desk. It needed a good sanding so I got on with it. About the time I was planning to go, I still didnt have the van so I said “Sanding sucks but I can do another hour.” 2 hours later, I was close to getting all the rough sanding done so I finished.
What a drag! I still have to do all the ‘finish sanding’. At least that part will go fast.
I did get to add dowels and I trim routed the desk top. Little details and a good sanding just seem to make projects jump to the next level.
I have also been thinking about how I want to skin the drawer cabinet. I have some terrible utility oak flooring. It will never be used on a floor.
I got the warped junk oak down to 1/2 inch thickness and removed the warps while I was at it. I think it’s going to look great. I just need to decide if I should fill the knotholes or not.
Thanks for reading!
