Process for spraying a lot of panels? - 8 replies

What process do you like when you have to spray front and back sides of cabinets, drawer fronts and doors? I’m using a tinted pre cat lacquer and the dry time is roughly 40 minutes. I’ll be spraying outside. I have a lazy susan I can use but that only does one side at a time. Hanging the parts seems smart but not sure how to ...

Do I have a problem with a partially hand planed surface? - 4 replies

Does your wife help in the shop? - 44 replies

My wife wants to replace a 40” round table top in the house. I had some pretty hard, rough wood on-hand that we both like but I don’t know what the name of it is. I believe it’s an exotic of some type. After flattening one face and squaring up the edges I glued all the piece together using domino’s. The faced side w...
