Sally's Coffee Table Pt. 11: Starting the French Polish

Starting out with the French Polish method of grain and pore filling.  A bit longer but after reviewing the take, I thought it stood on it's own.  So here is the beginning process of French Polishing.

Sally's Coffee Table Part 10

I can't believe this is such a long series.  But the build was long too and had some issues pop up.  I figure there may be a couple more to complete the series, but in this one the last of the wood work gets done and finishing is started.  Worked out well on my end though because I have not been very active in the shop for a while and I still have things to post.

Sally's Coffee Table Pt. 9

Here we go again!  This time some assembly, some mistakes, and the correction of mistakes.  My first ever draw bore tenons.  Not a success at first but we make it work.

Part 8 of the Coffee Table build

We are slowly getting there folks.  I am prepping and starting the finishing process and finding out how bad this ash is for tear out.  It has some wild grain and, like ash is apt to be, stringy.  Hang in there, things are about to get interesting on upcoming episodes.

Hair band deluxe

A while ago I got a BC Rich guitar in that needed some TLC.  It was an interesting instrument and had a few issues that needed to be straightened out.  Follow along while I bring back a guitar that goes well with spandex, leather and big hair.
