Thanks for the compliment Mark. I’ve seen some of your work too. I think I just have more tools than you, but certainly am not any more skilled. And I’ll never have your photography skills, as those can’t be learned….

What kind of clearcoat did you use and how did you apply it?

I just used wood conditioner, then sprayed it with Minwax, fast dry Polyurethane. It took two cans to get three coats. It turned out a lot better than I thought it would at first. Kind of expensive though. I just need to bite the bullet and get a sprayer.

... what do you have in mind for the grill?

Not sure, probable Burnt Sienna. I haven’t made up my mind yet.

Thanks for all the compliments guys. It really wasn’t all that hard. Just takes a lot of patience, which is something I lack so anyone should be able to do this without a lot of effort.

Beautiful work, Mike. Cherry remains one of my favorite wood grains.

Oh, and I love your house. That listening chair looks very inviting!

Nice work! Edges all look great, and if they're good enough to satisfy you, I'm sure they're as good as the pics make them look. Would love to sit in that chair one day. \:\)
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

I'm always amazed when you share your work, Mike. Just think if you had patience.

Hey, you posted more pics while I was typing my first response. The finished product looks great! It gives me even more desire and hope of doing the same.

Somehow you guys have confused my love/enthusiasm for woodworking with thinking that I know what I'm doing.

I'm actually pretty inexperienced in woodworking. You've just been hearing about it the last couple of years because I've started getting more interested in it and am "building up" my workshop. Most of the things I build are FOR the workshop... kind of an incestuous hobby so far.. but I'm hoping to build some small furniture pieces someday.

It would look nice against your rack


I bet it would look great up against your equipment too!


Wow! How did I not see that...

Very nice work. Great job matching edges. Always a trick with my shaky hands.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.
