« Part 11: Done!!..But Not Finished Part 12 of handsawgeek's Lathe Stand: A Hand Tool Build For a Tailed Appliance series no next part

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!!!

Good to see this again!

Heh. I have been avoiding poly because of the smell. Ventilation in the dungeon still isn’t fully implemented, but maybe the weather this summer will cooperate and I can work with it on projects I can take outside.

I’ve got some catching up to do with your past posts. Spending as much time on outdoor projects and dungeon overhauling as time and stamina allow for. Enjoy your summer, Ed.

Hey, Paul. Good to hear from you again. I know what you mean.. I’ve had to spend WAY too much time in the past two months doing yard work. I have a water feature that includes a forty foot long stream running across the back of the yard. This year there were a lot of leaks in the liner, so I’ve been doing a great deal of repair work on it.

Here’s a picture of part of it…

Hey, Paul. Good to hear from you again.
Thanks, Ed. Ditto.

Very nice! I would love to have a stream come through my property!

I like the way the large stones are laid out over and around the stream. This is what makes life worth living. We can create with wood when the timing is best for it. Shaping nature to keep it functional artwork is just as rewarding. No waste products, either. :)
