This is an old project from about 4 years ago that I built for my fiance’s mom. Its pretty basic but it was pretty massive. I used almost 4 full sheets of plywood. Before I built it I had to buy a bunch of tools like an air compressor, nail gun, router and bits, miter saw, spray gun, and build a router table. All in all it was well worth the reason to buy a bunch of tools that I still use today. It took close to 2 hours to spray each coat because the latex paint would start to dry in the gun reducing the flow. From now on I think twice before accepting any large scale project, although its always worth it in the end.

Very nice, it’s a shame it’s all covered in latex paint, still a great build.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Have your say...
