  1. I know I'm late to the party, but I think that looks pretty good. I hate pine and that does not make me puke.
  2. I had no idea you could use ammonia. That sounds like a great way to accidentally pass out from the fumes.
  3. Anyone have a favorite technique for finishing quartersawn white oak? I'm looking towards Wood Whisperer's Grandfather Clock as an inspiration. I assume there is no problem with putting ARS on top of a dye, but I have no idea for sure. I'm open minded to some ideas. I've never used QSWO before, but to me it's the one wood that looks good with a stain of some sort on it.
  4. Chisel plane and rabbet block plane.
  5. I got 5 or 6 sheets of it 3 years or so ago. I think from fastcap. If you spent $100 it was free shipping. I like it but I've changed my layout a bit since I got it and had to reconfigure. One of them I just turned over and was able to cut into the other side. I also got the burning tool to cut it, skip that. Utility knife works so much better.
  6. fantastic job. i got some a smoker and grill area that badly needs some things built and I'm dragging my feet.
  7. It ranges from a very tight 1/16" to a very lose 1/16" and then the far left and far right sides seem to be just a bit wider, but they seem to match so it kinda works.
  8. I like it. Not as well as ARS but one coat really makes it worth it. The drawer fronts are actually kin dried from my local hardwood guy. Saw this board and grabbed it when I bought my new planer. The rest of the case walnut is air dried.
  9. Rubio monocoat I really think it was.
  10. Finished! Thanks all for watching, and to those that gave advice, super appreciated.
  11. I tried to get some of the sides evened up with a shooting board that I built a year ago and never used until today. I think I need to learn how to use it better because I sucked. + Sanded, chamfered and drilled some pull holes. Tomorrow I put finish on drawers.
  12. Glued in a strip to act as a stop for my top drawer. I'm going to have to figure out a semi-permanent solution to keep the drawer in though, cause it's very short and will easily be pulled out and fall on the floor. Sanded, chamfered, etc. Finish on the case. Using Rubio Monocoat. I'm really happy with the grain. It's not perfect but it's by far the best I've ever done.
  13. I gotta build the bench top it goes in. Well see which of us win
  14. Got Andy Klein's 20" vise in the mail today. Box was tied and banged up so I hope nothing missing or damaged
  15. My progress after another 2 and half hours. I've honestly just about had it. Each time I slide a drawer in I slam it a little harder. Pretty soon I'll be picking up the entire thing and throwing it. My frustration level is extremely high. My plan is to make these adjustments, moving the sides up where there are up arrows. then I'm chamfering and making sure everything is flush on the front with sanding, etc. I know how this became so problematic (using a tape measure to get my spacer measurements, so I'll take that as a lesson learned. In addition, there were a couple of dra
