Well I got an HVLP sprayer from Harbor Freight. Kicking myself in the butt cause I havent gotten one sooner…several weeks of work, in several hours…sheesh… anyway here are some pics for you….. 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.
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
As we continue on in our build we get to where we need to build the boxes for our drawers. I run through it and explain about setting up for the drawer slides.
So here is part two of this series on making these desks. I show you how I layout my sheet goods and yes I did solve my quandary of the pencil drawer grain. So I hope that this is entertaining and educational for all.
I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes.

The bench seat will have a flip lid to store thi...
Well, disappointingly, the desk top needed a complete re-sanding. In the higher temperature conditions late yesterday afternoon the finish did not flow well and left an unacceptable orange peal surface. The orange peel was just too rough, another coat wouldn’t help. the other parts were quickly brought to smooth with a 220 grit rubdown. I sealed the desktop’s new surface with shellac, which dried very quickly; warm today. Knocked down the nibs, and shot a coat of thinned poly....
My brother and I have spent a good deal of time lately building a blanket chest our of quarter-sawn white oak. We have the inside lined with aromatic cedar (not fully installed yet, till after we put the finish on the rest of the project). I thought that I wanted to spray on the stain and the topcoat (was planning on polyurathane). I bought a turbine HVLP sprayer, the one from Rockler, which I wanted to get eventually anyway, b/c I keep reading/hearing that it puts a better finish on. I hav...
