    I suggest ditching the foam floor pads, and replace them with a 'horse stall' mat from somewhere like tractor supply co. I used one one the concrete when I worked in my garage, it makes a huge difference, regardless of foortwear. The mats are very firm, and treat your body more like it is standing in your back yard. 

    I agree with getting rid of your mats.  You are sort of thinking backwards by doubling them.  In doing that you are making them too cushy and they aren't giving you any support.  Mates are good but they need to be good quality too.  

    The horse mates are good.  I use the tiles from Rubber Flooring Inc.  and really like them.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    I wish you all a very safe and prosperous new year, plus I want to thank you all for being here, plugging away at woodworking as usual. It's a great comfort during strange times to have you guys here acting normal.

    No drama. No strife. Just good people interacting like they always do...

    It's refreshing.

    Very well put Dave.

  3. I remember Steve (wdwerker) talking numerous times about the process involved when painting a project versus just finishing.  Every little flaw or crack or seam gets magnified by the paint process, it just really stands out as apposed to say using a finish like ARS.

    His words were ringing in my ears when I was doing my kitchen.  You sand and prime and sand and prime, once that looks good you can feel safe putting you paint on.

    Anyone have a reindeer template that you’re willing to share? I just did one of them off a PDF I saw here a couple years ago but I had to hand draw it. Looking for something easier to scale and print if possible. 

    This is what I have, it is numbered for the cut order and sized for a regular sheet of paper.

    @Chet, what product was that? GF isn't commonly available around here, I might need to investigate Benjamin Moore.

    This is the primer and paint I used from Benjamin Moore.  It also comes in quarts.  You can spray, brush or roll it.  I was going to spray it but ended up rolling it for a few different reasons but I was extremely happy with how it rolled on.  I used a real short nap mohair roller I picked up in the B.M. store.  I brushed in the tight corners and rolled everything else.   The primer is one of the nicest ones I have used.  The broacher for the Cabinet Coat has a fair number of colors but they can mix it in almost all the colors they have in the color inventory.

  6. Looking good so far Ross.  The handle on that hand saw looks worn in a really cool way.

    Marc did a kitchen cabinet refresh in his mom's place a few months back and he did what you are thinking.  He used GF's milk paint and their High Performance satin for the top coat.  I was going to do the same thing until I ran across the Benjamin Moore product I used.
