Sally's Coffee Table Pt 13, A disaster.

Finishing off the finishing process, failing, stripping it and starting again.  By the end of the video I still have not figured out what is going wrong, but I keep trying.

A quick update

It has been busy around here for a while.  Too busy to edit video.  I quickly did a bit of a shop update this morning and got it posted.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I have been enjoying the weather.  With it being warmer I am taking advantage of it to spend a bit of time in the shop.  Also, Sally messed her foot up pretty badly last Sunday.  Nothing broken, but she has been off her feet for a while.  I had to jump in and help out around the house a bit more.  The food is not as good and the house is not as clean....lol.

Doc's little docs 9 - Habits

Every once in a while I get an idea that leads to a tip or trick. I am as guilty as the next person for doing things a certain way because that is the way I’ve always done it. When I recognise that I try to take a look at my procedures and see if I can’t get a start on a better habit.

Mail and key organiser.

Tired of coffee table videos yet?  I took a break from editing it and put this one together.  Yes, a complete build in one video!  My niece needed a key and mail organiser for her new home.

Sally's Coffee Table Pt. 12 - More French Polishing

I am taking the process much further than I have to, but I wanted to show it.  The shellac I am using is not dewaxed and I think that caused a few issues.  I have only used dewaxed flake shellac before.  We get a decent demonstration though.
