Saddle Display Rack - 15 replies
A good friend wants to display his grandfathers’ saddles in his living room and asked me to build the display racks. I have made saddle racks for the barn and tackroom, but one for the living room? I think the focus should be on the saddles and not the woodworking so it should be designed with that in mind. I have no Sketch Up skills a...

Router Bit Question - 24 replies

Three coats of undiluted Zinsser shellac and NO evidence of any finish on the surface. It just soaks in. Any thoughts other than to just keep laying on more coats? Thanks for looking.
