This weekend, the handsawgeek finally enjoyed the combination of a substantial block of free time and some pretty darn good weather.
The lathe stand was rolled out onto the driveway to receive its long-awaited application of a finish.
A couple coats of clear satin polyurethane were brushed on, and I now had me a finished shop fixture!
I even had time between coats to duck into the garage, fire up the bench grinder, and put a primary bevel on several of those old chisels I’ve acquired recently.
On another subject, that fancy-pants display table project I blogged about a couple of months back is on hold until Mrs. handsawgeek decides if she even wants it at all. I still have all the dimensional and joinery drawings made up, as well as some drawings of the proposed apron carvings, so I am ready to go if and when the green light comes on.
Man…gotta open up some more garage doors…that polyurethane stinks!!!
