Rockin' Ride #5: Finishing and final assembly

01-15-2009 06:27 AM by kshipp | 2 comments »

Refers to project posted here. The dry fit passed inspection from my quality inspector so it was time to move on to finishing. I disassembled it to three major components and put on Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. Of course I did this on my finishing/pool table. You can see the unstained head sitting on the table also. I installed the handle in the head with glue and two finish nails through the edge to hold it steady. I am using Waterlox Original Medium as a sealer and it’...

I cut my stock to width and length, and I regret having cut the carcase pieces it to length.

Our Shop #1: Basic Layout

07-11-2007 06:36 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 24 comments »
