A guest on the show Dale Meiners shows us how to achieve a high gloss clear coated finish. This is a process and a rather lengthy one too.
We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.

Videos on build projects and pdf files with patterns for some.I also siigned up for his weekly paid program when it first started and have learned much and enjoyed having a woodworking show to watch each week with details, not just highlighting a project.
This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height.

Right now I am spraying dewaxed shellac. I am trying to decide whether I will need to topcoat with poly or not…
With so many types of slides out there, there are different ways in which to install them. So here is another type of slide installation. I hope this is informative for everyone.
