The buffet table is my third project. The shelving unit is my second project and the little table is my first. All made of Ash except the legs on the little table which are oak ballisters from a stair that I got for free. This is fun.
The coffee table is almost done. I have to wait for the finish to cure before I can polish it out as it is too soft right now. Then I can fix the little issues to make it close to perfect. This finish does not photograph well as I had to put on a polarization filter to stop it from showing dust that cannot be seen with the naked eye but photos well. I used a Cannon Rebel EOS XT for the camera.The other projects were photo’d with a cheap digital fuji. Go figure on th photo quality.

The three projects shown are very nice, well made. You hit the nail right on the head when you said: This is fun. That’s exactly why we’re all here, glad you enjoy.

Nice work, I’m addicted to building projects like most on here as well. Blondie likes it too being she knows I’m behaving and would rather be in the shop than out at a bar LOL. Enjoy…..

thank you one and all for the encouragement. in a few days I start on the end tables to match the coffee table I am just about done with. Working with Water based material is a pain. Once I am done with the tables it is back to oil for me.

Nice work! But I can tell you are new because you still think of it as a “hobby”.
