Hello Ben, It is nice to hear from you and to get the chance to view some of your work.  Your new Kitchen cabinets are absolutely stunning complete with all the trimming that make for a great kitchen.  This is a kitchen that would please anyone and make anyone proud to own them.  You have completed a project of which is is an example for anyone whom is a woodworker.  There numerous features of which I like from the nice doors to the crown moldings.  I like the lay out of the cabinets and the color makes for a very rich look.

Ben I say congratulations on a job well done and it looks like you have found a new talent for yourself and could do well with cabinet making.  Thanks for sharing your impressive work.

Thank you Ben for a nice complement on the chest.  It was fun building it and ended up to be exactly what the customer wanted.  Have you made a decission on a thickness planner yet?  There are many choices out there that it becomes confussing, but as long as you stay with a popular name brand you will be fine.  They have all been tested by  woodworkers and are popular because they work.   Thanks again Ben and have a plesant day.  Be sure to post some pictures of your projects.

Hello again Ben, You asked about what type paint spray or hand finish. Normally I use an HVLP turbin spray gun and spray lacquer on most occassions. If it is a stain finish, I hand apply and wipe out to the texture and color desired and then follow up and apply a lacquer clear coat of gloss or satin. Looks like you are well on your way to building with kreg jig. The work bench looks very nice. Keep the ideas flowing and kreg jig will help you master even the tough joints.

Looking forward to seeing some of you projects on the community pages... jay salem, Oregon.

Hello Ben, You asked about what type of wood the entertainment center was made of. It is hickory, a very hard wood often used in high end cabinet work. The cabinet you will most often see are of a tan brown color or a creamy whit color. I some of my work I use the creamy white and rich brown mixed spotted wood to build a rustic cabinet with a rustic country look. In my area of the country it is most refered to as "Calico Hickory " due to the wild spotted mixture of wood color. In the photo you are interested in, the cabinet panels are made with wood that had large knotts in it as well as defects caused by nature such as knotts holes and cracked twisted wood by things such a "wind twist" while the tree is growing. I use a epoxy resin with a color added, usually either brown or black mixed with a hardner to repair the defect. The result is a high rustic eye appeal that is complementary to the wood. I might add that since the repair is epoxie the defect now is just as strong as the wood that surrounds it. the finish is usually a semi-gloss to a high gloss lacquer. I have made cabinets using the method from rough lumber of almost all the popular woods with good customer satisfaction. If interested I have a series of cabinets on my phopo page titled "The Hickory Collection" I hope this answers your question if not feel free to contact me. My best reguards to you. jay

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

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