Just wanted to get some other opinions--


Do you prefer to stain your project before or after you get it all together?  Alot of my staining i use Minwax Polyshades.  Some stains seem to be easier to work with the project apart than completed.  any thoughts?

I think most projects can be stained after you complete them, with the execption of raised panel doors, the panels should be stained before assembly to allow for shrinkage

I'm building a dressercloset and I'll let it talk for it's self and you well see hal nice and clean it is and yes thats minwax.

No build up

is that the minwax polyshade, and what is your technique in applying?
Well it is minwax I dont know about the polyshade but after I get my parts done I stain the inside edges and the 1/4" ply wood and some of the 1/4" dont like stain and I just go in cicles intle it is covered.

New Kreg 720Pro

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
