    8 Drawer Dresser In Walnut

    I just put on coat 3 30 seconds ago. I had some nasty tear out that i should have hit with a card scraper but didn't because i couldn't see it without finish. So after coat 4 if it doesn't meet my expectations I'll bust out the card scraper and start over.

    18" precision square

    I've spent more on a one trick pony, dang thing got away... I have no judgement on the stuff for me it comes down to does it fit my woodworkign style? Maybe .... Would i get a lot of use out of it? Maybe again.... Is it excellent value for money? Maybe ..... it's just to many maybes for me to justify. I have a feeling that if i used one for a month i'd buy it in a heart beat but ignorance is a fuller wallet.

    Just read on the tribune that we broke the all time February record with 30.1" this month. Our forecasts got pulled back for the weekend i hope that means it's all going to stay down in Iowa.... . I'm starting to wonder if i need to rake my roof. I don't have any ice but there is a LOT of snow up there. Looks really cool like a nice gingerbread house.

    New Spray System

    I believe Fuji makes a pressure pot system. They include a gun with a cup probably because most users will go that route. The cups just thread on so they are easily removed. I've heard Fuji has good service could shoot them an email or phone call.

    G&G Bed Frame

    Isn't Oak the traditional wood with the jungle woods being the later adaptations? IIRC G&G is based off the arts and crafts movement mashed with Japanese styling both are heavy in the oaks. The early adaptations used a lot of teak, Oak, Port orford cedar, and redwood it wasn't till closer to 1910 that they started using mahogany. I also swear I've seen quite a few G&G original pieces that were in oak. Sapele must be a current substitution after the genuine mahogany's are getting harder to source? I know Darrel love his sapele & mahogany for some reason... If i'm gonna spend that kind of money walnut is the way to go. The end of the day G&G was all about the design it doesn't appear to me that they dictated much on the species of wood hence the large variations across the houses they designed. The one consistency is the ebony plugs.

    18" precision square

    That one is $10 cheaper so i might not get the wood peckers out of sheer resistance to their backwards graduations on their rulers. I like the idea of the track square but that's some good cash for an alignment tool that only works with the track saw. I don't find that i'm using my track saw for critical square cuts very often.

    Reloading bench and utility desk

    A lot of that can depend on the device you are using to post as well. Posting from a phone is different than a tablet which is different from a computer. The little plus symbol next to the quote is a nice feature they call it multi quote. I suggest playing around with it, it might make life easier.
