So after changing oil in the 86 Hydro I finished up my tool and nail cupboard. Looks like I worked myself out of a job. now I gotta find something else fun to work on :twisted:

NICE!! Did you coat the wood with something to give it that red tint or were the boards already colored like that? Did you ever finish that portable bunkhouse?

Yeah, it's old stain partially weathered off. The upright sides are from a shelf that was built in a corner and the the door and front trim boards came off a closet on the other side of the room. Yes, the "bunkhouse" is done. Well, not done, done, but it's finished outside and I'm slowly working inside. I built a wood working bench last week and this cupboard goes in that corner. I want to enclose the workbench under the windows with doors and drawers and then build a rolling cart for my table saw. Facing south the building warms right up on sunny afternoons and makes a nice cheery place to work.

Old pic but outside looks about the same except for being finished.

This is a poor pic of the woodworking bench. The top is laminated chipboard with maple veneer. It probably won't hold up very well but it is heavy and it was cheep. (free) Maybe I can replace it down the road. I was reading about building a bench top and the instructions said to coat with boiled linseed (heated, brushed on and wiped off) and to apply it "Once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, and once a year thereafter forever" I'm pretty sure I am not going to do that with this one :twisted: Although I did oil it once.

Your bench looks real nice. The nice thing about the chip board is it will stay straight. That should serve you will.

I missed this, looks great. Reading today's "what you doing this weekend" got me checking back on the bunkhouse, wondered if there was a picture when completed. So this is your woodworking shop, like how it turned out....James

I check in once in a while. Still on crutches from the ankle fusion. I can finally touch the air boot to the ground, just can't walk on it yet. Getting better but from the knee down still feels like a club. Working on getting some muscle strength in the calf, getting some movement in my toes. Been a long winter inside, spending most of my time at the beach cottage. Just had a huge storm here, 90 mph winds and lots of rain....James

Yikes, I hope you get to doing better soon. It's no fun when you can't walk.
