Where’s my Camera Cord?
I lost my camera cord about a week ago so I haven’t been able to post photos recently. So some catch up with pics… (Borrowed my sister’s cord).
Kitchen…. Cabinets anyone?
If you followed the cabinet making journey you have witnessed some of the madness behind our method. And this week I got to install them finally.
The kitchen is stained and painted now…I stained the cabinets and trim then finished with dewaxed shellac and three to four coats of poly. The paint is a two tone job.
Setting the cabinets took the better part of a day to scribe and push, level and shim. We assembled the second one in the kitchen, screwing the boxes together and then gluing and nailing the face frame to it.
The first cabinet set in place. It still has its award winning ribbon. You can also see the uppers that I rebuilt.
The sink cabinet in place with the ply subtop.
Birthday boy makes screens
Then came my birthday present from my wife and her parent’s….. It is great to have a woodworking wife!
Oh… Yeah….. Guess What?
So I made some screens for the laundry porch for my first project with the new gift…
Clues to my gift in this picture.
Homemade screen stop from reclaimed fir.
Hallway done√ (Not really)
We spent many days staining and painting the hallway.
Late night penance.
Finished hallway. More doors to stain.
Laundry Porch Done √ (Not really.)
The laundry porch was also stained and lacquered (sprayed)...
…... and painted.
The stairway resurface and staining are complete.
Now I have to build and install 9 windows and the three screens.
Living room Floors
After moving everything we own out of the dining room and living room we finally are having the floors redone. They are white oak and quite scratched up. The wall refinishers screwed them up too.
Sanding the living room.
One coat of oil-based poly. Two to go.
So things are coming together. We can set our stuff back this weekend and will be done with tile next week.
I am going to start a seperate blog about the the two cabinets I am building.
Thanks for reading this long post.
