Fred W. Hargis Jr reacted to CDave for a gallery album, End Table
Hope Everyone is doing well. New workshop will be delivered end of the week. Hoping to have it set up by mid summer
I have been getting racks and shelving made to get a jump on a few things. The Mrs wanted a new end table
I used Hard Maple for this after a light stain I top coated with 4 coats of wipe on poly which was very forgiving.
I did use my new Tabletop planer on the legs.Got it done by Mother's day so I slipped by on that one
Fred W. Hargis Jr reacted to steven newman for a gallery album, A case for a Stanley #45 plane
Having won a second one of these Combination Planes, thought it only fitting to build a case to store it in. 1/2" thick Pine boards were cobbled up into a box and a lid. Some brass hardware was added to the lid. had to print out a set of labels, even had to hand colour one. Stain is by Minwax, called "Gunstock" there are 2 coats of clear gloss poly. Corner joints are 1/4" box/finger joints, hand cut. Stands 7" tall, by 11" long, by 6" wide.
