Project Information

Hey Jocks hope that the summer season is in full swing and everyone is enjoying the wonderful summer weather. Today post is filled with a few first for the shop, a new tool being a Festool Domino used extensively on this cube style bookcase, and then the use of Dye Stain to achieve this rich dark espresso color. This piece built with 4 and half sheets of cabinet grade plywood, each piece double laminated and face frame with inch and half x3/4 birch hardwood. The coolest thing about his build was that I built the entire unit on my work bench as shown in the photo, once completed I stood the unit up to stain and finish. The wrapping was for shipping to customer house since it was raining day of delivery. I forgot to get finish photo and then remember once I had the unit wrap. The customers were extremely pleased with the finial results and I was pleased with the new tool and another cool finish to use in future projects. Thanks for viewing…Wilson

Cool tool and a cool project Wilson, with great results. That espresso is a gorgeous color. You obviously put a good number of clamps to use. By the way, I love the hanging tennis ball. We wouldn't want you driving into that wonderful workbench.

I can see where the domino would be the best tool for that job.
Great work.
