Woo hoo! Shop Tiiiiime!

Too long away. Way too long. Today I’d had enough of sitting at the desk. I’m on my, oh, eight hundredth consecutive 10+ hour day, so after working five hours today I hit a low spot, shut everything down, and went to play in the shop for four whole hours. It seemed like fifteen minutes. I got the entertainment center tops, front, and doors all set up and spent a couple of hours meticulously masking off the glass in preparation for the finish. Then I gave everything the first coat of shellac (a very diluted wash coat that helps the dye go on uniformly). After it dries a day or so I’ll mix and apply the dye.

Total time: 169 hours.
