The first of our larger projects for 2011. Made this prototype from pine. My students made Macracarpa units.

Nice bookshelf, I wouldn’t have known it was pine as clear as your boards are. You must have spent a lot of time selecting them!

Very nice job with the pine. What did you finish it with?

Another place I have yet to go. A spray booth. :) I have the hvlp spray equipment as I knew it would be the way of the future in the VOC free world of finishing. I do have a space for setting up a smaller spray booth. Are you going to build one in the home shop?

How well do your students fare in this area of woodworking. The finish is as important as the build?

Your pine material appears to be pretty refined quality. I’m guessing your material of choice for a prototype? But pine has it’s own set of difficulties?

Know you did this awhile ago. As above, what did you use forfinishing? Would you be using different finishes in the NEW school?
