Garage Workshop

By Jeff | Dec. 03, 2012

Christmas is coming up and we have so much to do! We felt like we got so much started and almost nothing done over the weekend. Saturday was a perfect day to work outside, so we started work on our Christmas lights only to find out we didn’t have quite enough of them. And when we went back to Lowe’s, they were all sold out. By the time we found some elsewhere and made it home, it was too dark to do anything with them. I guess that will have to wait for another day.

We also began work on getting things set up for our baseboards and finishing the table. We set up shop in the garage and I used our new miter saw to make a small practice wood square for testing our staining to make sure it turns out correct. I’ve never stained wood before and when I looked up instructions, I found that poplar can sometimes be more difficult to get an even stain. I plan on squaring up the table top tomorrow and we’ll be ready for staining and assembly!
