There are two of these doors, both are in pretty bad shape.They would like them stripped and refinished. and they do want it done in that turquoise blue or green. the doors are solid and just a few spots of weather damage so got a gallon of stripper and ready to go.
I finished up the project in this session. Since it sticks out, I will comment on my non standard design – i.e. drawers in the back. I originally did this as an attempt to fix an issue in my shop lay out – stupid move. Fortunately, the flaw is not as annoying as I was worried since the INCRA Router Top has you standing at the side (facing the fence) vs standing at the long edge. So I started here And ended here Steps I followed in today’s session1. Dust Collec...

Howdy Folks, It’s been a little while since I posted the last blog on the wine rack and it will probably be longer yet till I get the next one out. Here are a few quick pics and such on the finishing process I’m experimenting with…First I taped off the parts that will be a future glue joint. I don’t want the finish the obstruct the glue’s ability to bond the two surfaces together. Then I put on a coat of some good ol’ BLO.. After a day or so (or u...
So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...

The first time was in 2006 when I retired from the Army and couldn’t afford to purchase one so I searched the web for one made of wood. What I found was this great design on what was then known as workbench magazine now known as My Home My Style Magazine. http://www.workbenchmagazine.com/main/wb300-rack01.html Back then I was driving a Ford Ranger an...
