They also had a plan on how to make the mallets (commercial mallets start at $50 and rapidly climb into outer space. It was discounted to half price and inclu...

Curved Front End Table #6: Pulls, Finish and Final Assembly

05-14-2016 01:04 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This is the final video in this series. Before final assembly, I finish the piece with shellac and Waterlox for the cherry, and water based poly for the maple parts. I also show how I made the custom pulls for the doors and the drawer from ebony and maple. I show how I hide the magnetic catches for the doors so they are almost invisible. Then it’s on to the task of installing them correctly on the curved surfaces. The rest of the interior pieces get installed, the top and back get...

05-04-2016 09:03 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 0 comments »

I’m happy to report the lumber rack is complete. It’s smaller than I drew up, but I found that just two rows fits what I need for now. Those pics are in the updates I put in my workshop section. I’m beyond happy to have finally finished that part of the organizational undertaking. No more tripping on wood. Now to building the sheet goods rack? To be determined I suppose. I’m just excited to get back to the kids table and chairs I was working on before I got tired of t...
