Dressing Table Build

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys - I work as a geologist with the oil industry, so not much available anywhere in the world right now. I'm sure I'll still be lurking here admiring what you're all building.

So I see. But what I meant was, I have walls at both ends of my bench. If I clamped it onto my face-vice like that it would literally be sticking into the bathroom.

:D:D:D . .. Classic!  I can totally picture this in my mind.

Repetitive or not, your trim looks great.

My hopes are with you for the future.

So you managed to age it into an antique in a year or so rather than 100? The end result looks good, doesn't matter if it looks iffy on closer inspection most of the time it won't get that. Thanks for sharing, i hope you take us on another adventure some time.

Well it looks pretty good from where I stand.  Show it off, let people look at it and resist the urge to point out the flaws.

I wish my mistakes looked half that good :) 

Be proud. That was a huge change in environment. You learned something and you managed not to turn it into firewood. Success story *thumbs up*

Wow, that was a really fun thread to follow, having missed it the first time around. Glad you followed up and excellent work.

Really well done, H3nry. I'm impressed that you got back to it. I know how it is when a project lingers too long.

Thanks guys ... it's good to see some familiar names still here.

Now I need to find something else to clutter the bench up with ...

So, do you have a bigger shop where you are now? :) 

Yup ... I have a whole one-car garage to play with (apart from a few bicycles).

it's a bit colder in the shop though ... it took all the heaters I could find to keep it above freezing for that -35 cold snap.

Man a whole 1 car garage, that must kick the crap out of doing wood working in the shower :D.

Nice. My well insulated garage shop normally stays about 5 - 10C even with the thermostat set at 4.5*, but not the last couple of weeks.
