« Part 34: Basement Wall Cabinets [Part 1] Part 35 of Why buy it when you can make it! series Part 36: First hand-cut dovetail »

It occurred to me that it’s been 2 months since I posted anything. I’m actually done with the basement wall cabinet build and install and posted it as a project in my gallery.

All in all, if I had to time the build, at most 25% of the actual working time was spent on the actual construction of the cabinets and doors, 75% on the finishing (experimenting with thinning and spraying the 5 coats of finish used: 1x primer, 2x paint, 2x water-bourne polyurethane). I for one am certainly turned off of using paint meant for painting walls in woodworking projects.
