Rolled on Killz primer followed by “china cup” white which gave me a shiny white wall to work with. Whilst the paint was drying I installed all the full extension drawer rails (10 ea @ >$12 each – it ain’t cheap to refurbish a shop.) Then I cut my drawer box sides to size. I’ll do simple captured dado drawers with oak face fronts. It’s a shop so nothing fancy like dovetails.
Just a couple of progress pictures including one with the location of my new lathe home which I’ll describe further when the picture comes up.
Primin’ with a goofy grin.
Full set of cabinets ready to install. My brother is coming over tomorrow to help me install them. He’s put in dozens of kitchen cabinets and I’ve put in none so I figure I’ll get his help to make sure I don’t foul anything up.
In this picture you can see the Jet 1220 lathe stand in the new home. I envision that the wall to the left will have a cabinet that will hold all the turning tools at my left hand in easy reach. The 8” grinder for sharpening lathe chisels will be on the counter I am installing such that all it will take to sharpen a chisel is to turn around and give it a touch up. It will be my most efficient tool setup. (The rat’s nest of cables won’t be there in the end…)
