Just a little update on the picture frame. i got the hickory today and have planned out all of my cuts. I am waiting until this weekend when i am supposed to get a table saw until i do any work. i have planned out the finish to. it looks like from my test piece the finish that got both piece the closest was Arm-R-Seal. I wanted to use a water based but i really didn’t like the look so oil is the way to go. hoping to have the table saw tuned up and a router table build onto it by next Tuesday so i can start the project. I should have the project finished by next friday. Thanks for reading and any comments will be appreciated.

oh, you’re tempting me Todd. its a tongue and groove style though as the customers want it to match their kitchen cabinets.

It sounds like you have a real good grip on the time frames you have to get things done. The ability to do good planning is an admirable trait to have. Thanks for the posts and I look forward to seeing the blog/product of your work.
