So i’m fairly new to this woodworking thing. I made some corner shelves, a few small keepsake boxes. I’ve mostly been on the endless journey of setting up the shop properly.
Anyway, half of my garage space is a music room. It has two windows, and I have neighbors. No one ever complains about noise, but I was thinking it’d be the neighborly thing to do to halve these windows be covered when we’re rockin. I also thought maybe then any less-than-neighborly people who ‘happen’ to peer in won’t be able to see the scads of expensive music and recording equipment.
SO I made these. No router and expensive bits, just table saw.
After about a week I realized I hated the orange tinge to the stain, took them down and applied another layer of stain (pictured). I’m happier with that at least… some of the joinery and panels aren’t so great.
Like I said, I have two windows. I just got the next set made up and glued.
I’m already happier with them AND I’ve learned from previous mistakes what sort of things show up when you stain pine. I got the minwax pre stain conditioner, and I’ve read that you shoudl leave it on overnight. I’m not to sure how that will change the color, especially since I used two different stains. If you have any experience with this, let me know.
So, sometimes this week, in-between band practices, I hope to finish these doors and get them up!
If you have any suggestions at all about making doors like these, please chime in!
