Well being so new to woodwork and what not I expect to make mistakes. I have made many so far and im sure I have just scratched the surface of whats to come. My latest one is really bothering me though. Its bad when you wake up thinking about it…. Ugggg
A little background… My oldest daughter has a younger half brother whom she wanted me to make a step stool for. I was very excited when she hit me up about it. I am 34 years old and still remember the one I had as a child. The original plan was I build it and she paints it (sounds like a great plan to me). As in typical teen fashion she got busy and I had to do the crunch time paint on the stool. Of course I had to get fancy with it…
I hit it with a basic Krylon banner red base. I came back and free handed everything else. I was actually very proud of it and was beyond excited for my oldest to give this as a Christmas gift for her brother. That was of course before I hit it with the Krylon Satin Clear Finish. To my wonderful surprise it white washed the whole stool. I mean bad!
In a desperate attempt last night I tried to buff it out…. Yup…. That’s where things got worse. I failed… Looks like this gift wont be opened on Christmas morning.
I hate to make my first blog here on Lumber Jocks a rant, but it’s whats on my mind….. Thanks for listening…. Ummmm…. I mean reading….lol
P.S. I would of posted pics but I couldnt figure how to upload them to the site… Im just batting a 1000 the last couple of days…lol
