Long, 3 day weekends are the best for projects. I've got plenty in the works, but not all are fully completed.
I spent a lot of time removing laquer from a piece I'm doing for a client. Removing laquer is easy, but when you're doing a large piece, it becomes messy and tedious.
I start with a light sanding...
I worked in small areas, wiping off each small section as I went.
This is what the end product will start too look like. If there's paint underneath, you'll need paint thinner and a metal scraper to remove it.
I'm also working on building living room furniture. My inspiration: 4 window sashes + 8 spindles + 1 pile of hardwood = 2 end tables and 1 cabinet.
I'm hoping to turn them item into this...
Please notice how technical my drawings are! : )
I hope to post my finished projects this week!
