This is a Christmas present for my mother in-law. This was also my first stain-able project and I went with the Minwax 1 step Poly and Stain….. I don’t recommend this stain to anyone!! I’ve now noticed that finishing a woodworking project is a hobby all in its self. Overall the project came out pretty good, there are a couple things I learned from this project that I didn’t know going into it. Live and learn!

I notice during this project I need to get my shop to the next level….. completing my ultimate miter station, making an assembly table/out feed table, and some peg board above my workbench. I asked for the grizzly 17” band saw for X-mas but I’m doubting my decision to get it now, I need so many other tools… handheld router, oscillating/belt sander….parallel clamps….plus the above shop improvements, i’m thinking about asking for that stuff instead.

Nice.If you made that with just basic tool your ready to move up. In 55 more days you will be working in your new shop. Making that jewelry cabinet for you wife. I know if my wife see this that’s what I will be doing for my next project. That’s the beauty of woodworking learning, improving and giving a someone a nice gift that you made.

That came out real nice.
And don’t worry about those tools, they’ll all come along soon enough.
Then, before you know it, you’ll wonder where to put all your tools! lol
Nice job !
