It's not done yet, and yes this is a late Christmas Present for my FIL, however I wanted to show it off now. It's a Curio for his model cars.



The base was installed tonight. I still have glue blocks to install and leveling feet, then of course the stain, but it is getting there. Need to check on the glass too.

Construction pics can be found here. http://www.rhodeswoodsmith.com/current_project.htm

Enjoy!

Great going Tom! Alot of work goes into a project like that. I bet your FIL is glad his daughter married you! :icon_wink:
It's funny you say that, cause this is mostly out of my head. I got the base design and some of the trim detail from a differnt set of plans, but the size, main design, and hardware choices are pretty much my design in my mind and not on paper.

Sometimes that's good... Sometimes, not so good. :blink:

Thanks to all for the positive feedback!

Yup, lookin' good. The only fault I can find is that your shop is way too clean.

Oh come on... You know he only cleaned up that corner to take the picture.:laughing:


Looks good Tom. How do you finish things, spray or brush?

Looking great! I'm with Rob though, next time you post a picture could you at least throw a bag of garbage on the floor in the background so the rest of us won't feel so bad. :laughing:
You mean like this...



Meet Shadow... The shop dog and spot sweeper. :thumbsup:

The cabinet is lookin' real good! Is that going to get some beveled glass or plain? Beveled would be the cat's meow.
I just replaced my lost digital camera with another. I think for sh*** and grins, I'll post a picture of what my, uh, shop looks like. After seeing it though, no one will probably ever want my advice on anything again. It's that bad.
I'll take a pic later...

Beveled would of been nice, but I'm doing regular double-strengh glass in front. The glass shelves and doors are 1/4" shelves with polished edges.

I'll get pics when it's all set up.

Not even close TT

I like to clean up once a year, whether it needs it or not. I'm almost due.
