Saw some posts here while looking for info and thought I'd sign up.

Got into woodworking one day when I saw a magazine for custom closets and thought... I can do that. Of course, that meant I had to buy tons of new tools... And that continues today.

Still pretty new at this. Built some quick shop cabinets and one craftsman style bunkbed. Working on some cabinets for inside the house now.

Nice arlaghan, have you checked out hardwood industries in Woodinville? I bought wood from them a few times and they have goid prices, although someone told me they are now strictly only a wholesaler.

Im located in sammamish.

Hey crusader, yeah that was the first project I took on after building my shop. I spent a lot of time reading and studying plans before I began. I purposely made the beds to match a craftsman desk plan I have because my wife liked it so much.

But before any of that, I am tackling some cabinets. It is a proof of concept to prove to myself I can do it. The construction went well, but I'm struggling with painting it. I think its just a lack of a good sprayer so I bought an HVLP today. Hope it turns out well. Here's a pic.

Arlaghan, have you been to Compton Lumber? I stopped today for the first time. They have a LOT more wood than CrossCut and their prices seem to be a little bit better. They don't have quite as good a selection of exotics, by their domestic stock is impressive.

They're right around the corner from CrossCut.

Yeah I was the one that went over to Hardwood Industries and talked to a fellow who told me they are wholesale only.
Comptons is good that's for sure, though the last few times I've been in the selection of QSWO was dismal. Check out Rocklers as they have pretty good sales on wood. Right now the sale is for
purpleheart and paduk for $6.00 a bf.

Nice looking cab there mister!
