Length is aproximately 18 inches, height is fifteen width is about 13-14 at the widest end. Finsh is 3 coats tung oil followed by 3 coats spar poly (plants and water therefore spar.)

David- I have a Makita drill, a tenon cutter, a circular saw, a chop saw (nonslider) that needs a new blade but I use it anyhow, a belt sander that is a piece of junk and needs to be replaced with a FESTOOL. I have a handheld power planer (I just bought it- Dewalt power planer) I also have a utility knife. That’s about it, unless you mean like hammer, screwdriver. And I have a part of a shop to work in these days. I cleaned out half the garage and put old kitchen cabinet bases down the middle and I have an old metal table/desk thing that I use for a work bench. I still need to get glass fixed in 3 windows and patch a small hole in roof. My dad has a torpedo heater he said I can have- I just have to go get it. I started building in the new “shop” space this week. It was nice actually having my tools within reach, and not worrying about the rain. :) I got alot more finished I think- just saving the steps to get to the tools.

Global Patron? LOLOLOL Jamsie : I don’t have a lathe… And have no use for one. :) I don’t want to try to learn how to poke sharp chisels into wood that is spinning really fast. Reminds me of the old finger and fan thing…

Rivergirl, you are global now on the www, this little Dane are watching you!
You make me laugh, you are afraid of a lathe, but use powertolls as if it was toothpicks.
You are a volcaon of projects.
Best thoughts,

Thanks you guys. So mads, should I change my name to volcanogirl? Powertools are no problem- the pointy parts are pointed away from me. A lathe- the pointy things come flying right back at you… stabbed to death by a chisel through the heart…. ... That would be my epitaph.
