Finishing and finishingI have completed my TV stand and it came out better than I hoped. I learned a lot from this project and can’t wait to make my next piece of interior furniture.

My research on the net shows that a typical garage size (although a bit tight on the cars) is 20×20 feet.We would be lucky if we could have the whole space in our disposal to turn it into a woodworking workshop.
