I've spent 17+ years in IT. I am passionate about photography and woodworking. I hope to spend my retirement years continuing to work in things I love to do.

I got started a bit late in the day, but did get one coat of the High Performance finish on. I used a Rockler HVLP to apply the water based acrylic/urethane blend. The goal in my wife’s final choice was to keep the look of the wood as...
The base has been assembled now for about a week. But what’s taken time has been new discussion on the finish. After long planning to do an Arm-R-Seal or similar, my wife decided she wanted to keep the wood as light as possible. S...
