Shop Talk

I needed a quick and cheap project for the shop and settled on building a cabinet for the wall above the table saw. One piece of Ash plywood and some walnut and maple scraps was all it took to make the 2x4x1 cabinet. I even got to experiment with a new door technique (floating panel in cope/stick doorframe). I learned a lot and got the whole thing built in 10 hours. Now it’s on to the finishing stage. I’m using the old familiar Tried and True danish oil finish. It’s a great finish, but takes loads of elbow grease when you apply it to thirsty plywood like ash.
I’ll post pics when it’s up.
