I put 4-6 or maybe 8 coats of oil-based varnish on each side of the 7 pieces that go into making my new humongous desk (plus dyed and varnished 3 cabinets), so that whole process seemed to take forever, as I usually had to wait for 24 hrs. for each coat to cure.
Now I’m attaching the center black piece to the two 5 foot wide side pieces, using pocket holes. Made my first pocket holes ever today, and got one side attached. 🙂
Plus, check out my fantastic new cutting/work table, in white. Got it and assembled it last night. I love it! It’s got a 40″ x 60″ very flat work surface (unlike the plastic slightly concave fold-up table I’ve been working on). The 4 legs fold in and the 2 sides fold down, so it collapses into a little table only 14″ wide — all on casters so I can roll it out of the way when not in use!
Someday, this room is going to be fabulous. I see it taking shape, but never could have imagined it would take so frigging long! But I’m not rushing the wood mongery part because you can ruin weeks’ worth of work in the blink of an eye, and I’d like to avoid that, if possible. 🙂
