I like it all. I agree, probably a lot of work, but the PVC painted black looks REALLY GOOD. Dang it too...seeing it just created more work:P, but it does look classy.

Great idea with the tape marking the grit & install date on the front of the table...Hope I can remember all I'm learning.:WonderScratch:

Thanks for sharing...you might consider putting the tape/grit/date idea in our Tips Section; really is a good idea.

Thanks. 

 

Something to note before spray painting PCV.  While the pipe has no shiny coating it is always a good idea to lightly sand it to clean before painting.  With all other pieces you need to get the release agent coating from the factory mold off.  I use brake cleaner with some scotchbrite pads then clean with Simple Green and let dry.  Failure to do so will produce a unique cracked and shriveled finish that comes right off and requires the above procedure and a stiff brush to then start over.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
