That OddLots Ad #29: Final PIP..

10-09-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Before this thing is brought upstairs, insert and backs installed, and posted as a Project… Sanding was done. Then a coat of this stain was brushed on…I thought about using these latches for the doors.. As they match the rest of the hardware…. Was then informed by a Design Guru, that such latches are CHEAP, and the look sucks? One on every corner…..Let the stain dry a while…..happened to remember I had a wee bit of Walnut scrap sitting around. Firs...

Open area below that is fore cables and cords to come through, from there on down is for air flow to the heater. Last night, after the Big Parade downtown, did a bit of sanding…cleaned up the drawer’s dovetails and the repaired corner.. May add a bead around the drawer..will see after this is upstairs. Far end of the top was cut to...

That OddLots Ad #22: Door hung, drawer started..

09-28-2018 03:24 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, spent 3 hours of shop time yesterday. Seems to be about average amount of time I can spend in the shop at a stretch. Long time ago, an 8-12 hour stertch was being done. Them days are long gone. Anyway, the door glue up came out of the clamps yesterday…needed a bit of trimming to fit.. Both edges had a slight bow to them…Stanley #6c flattened that out. one end was a bit out of square, trimmed that , as well. Hinges…was having issues with the cordless dr...
