When I first started my bucket list, I had planned on making a cabinet based work bench well every good plan gets changed at least once throughout the process of planning. When I say that it gets changed boy oh boy do I mean it. The first issue that I noticed with my original design that I drew up of the bench was the overall cost of the bench. For a 6 foot bench, it would have cost me over $1500 just to get the materials to get started. So Now I go into the changes I made. 1. The wood:...
Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory.

Yo whats up everybody I am working on a project now and I found something out today that really surprised me if you put a polyurethane down over top of a oil based finish then it is a really rough surface if you sand it but if you take a rag soaked with mineral spirits then it removed that rough coat and it seals the wood up really good.
Today I applied the finish coats of lacquer to all of the pieces. After a couple of hours of drying time I put all of the hardware pieces on, installed the legs as well as the center fake legs/ pull handles. I have come to the conclusion that I need a lot of help with using a spray gun. I either left out a step or do not have the settings right but even though I got a pretty nice finish it is not a really really nice finish that I have achieved with my hand applied finishes in the past....

In this episode I cut the dados on the sides for the 4 shelves. Then I cut the 1 in strips that are going to be on the back of each shelf to stop shoes from going over the back.
