Im in the current state of shop slop. I thought i was done with finish until the doors got side by side with the other pair … Not dark enough … Awesome.

Planed them all the way back and refinished.

As requested a pic right, now not staged. Current projects in various stages of completion 14. Mostly small stuff I am winding down as I get ready for warmer weather when I have concrete walkways and stone walls to build.

ShaneA = Funny! In my shop the only physical fitness that gets done is lifting a glass of a nice mixed drink at the end of the day, joined with a good cigar. (laughing)
