Idea of a Project

  Re: Idea of a Project by bandit571 (Might be the Dr. Fee...)
Was informed last night that Lowes was still open, until 9pm.....drove down there and bought a 1/4" x 24" x 48" panel, a box of screws,  and a quart of stain. Winkgrin ..and almost hit a deer on the way back home.... No

Got the clamps off the drawer...was having issues with getting the drawer to close all the way....went ahead and sanded it down, and installed the handles....it will close to the last 2", then get stuck.. No ..may try to fix that later..... Rolleyes

Uncle Charlie ( Horse) gave me a rude wake up call this morning.. Upset ..from right hip to the knee...one big cramp...made it rough to walk the 30' to go pee. No ..may have overdone things, yesterday?   Confused

Will see how the rest of today goes....stay tuned Rolleyes
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Try some pickle juice when that happens. I've just started to try it. Have juice on standby, and no cramps since I've spent money on a supply of juice. Laugh

So... a hit and miss sort of day, today....last two drawers were assembled...waited for the glue to dry...added the handles...sanded things a bit...cleared off the top of the case.. Cool 

So...how about a PIP? Confused   haven't applied a finish yet, waiting on the dust to settle... Rolleyes
   
Lots of coves...may have to go back and add a bit more light to this one... Confused
   
View of the front....handles are a Brushed Nickel... Cool
   
Corner view....and..
   
Maybe someday, I'll get the hang of doing dovetails?  Uhoh

a  "Puritan Pine" stain will be used...even found a couple brushes tonight..will post when the finish is on? Confused

Stay tuned.. Winkgrin

Was having a lot of issues between some of the plywood panels, and the stain... No 
   
Yes, there was stain applied....5 minutes later..stain disappears? Upset  The pine was great..
   
But there was something wrong with that one sheet of plywood.. No
   
Three on the left side...two on the right side...and the back of the case...wasn't really concerned about the back...after the 4th try, and a wash coat of poly, then a 5th try... Rolleyes   in which I added a drizzle of Walnut stain to the Puritan Pine stain....
   
And then  a coat of clear gloss poly over the entire "mess"
I think I have the left side fixed, as well as the right side.. Winkgrin 
   
Top is looking a bit better?   Confused  
   
may just call this one "Done"? Cool  
   
Waiting on the poly to dry....before this come upstairs...

thanks for following along... Cool

That must have been frustrating to see the stain disappear like that.  You handled it well though and the end product looks great.  Nice walk through.

What kind of pickles? Does it work the same way if you just eat the pickles?

I've heard that gulping apple vinegar daily is healthy.

Not sure on your questions.
I buy the 80oz and also gallon jars of dill pickles so have lots of juice.
You can also now buy straight pickle juice, marketed as a kind of sports drink.
