Hi folks, finally I have something I can post on the progress of my re-furb.
It seems like it is taking me forever but when I look back at the mess I was in there has been progress.Wasn’t able to do much last week as the wolves were baying at the door, and bread had to be put on the table. Pardon my exaggeration, but I think you know what I mean. Below are some pics. of the work I was able to get done.

This a new Mitre-Saw station I have built with storage below for some of my power tools and drawers in the centre.
The drawers are made from 12mm MDF, pinned and screwed together and finished with 2 coats primer.
Drawer fronts are 18mm Ply with a pine Fore-edge pinned and glued, finished with 3 coats water-based floor varnish I picked up on offer from my local contractor’s supplier.
Handles are 100×20x20(mm) Pine, with groove made with router and chamfer bit. Made them in lengths and then chopped to size for safety.
Local supplier wanted $6 per set of drawer runners and as I need a few, made the traditional runner/kicker system from scrap timber to save some cash.
The last pic is of a small corner unit for storage.
Would be appreciative of any comments/feedback/suggestions to enable me to complete my project.
Hopefully I will start phase 2 tomorrow.
