    Well this story never seems to end, the install got pushed back again, the client has had an elderly parent pass away. Of course I'm not upset or anything, I'm very sorry for their loss and will accommodate their schedule in whatever way I can.

    It will get done that is for sure, at this point what is another week.

    I've been sick as a dog for the past couple of days, caught some bug, fever the whole bit, not able to work as much as needed.


    I did get into these front strips, got them rough cut,


    sanded,


    dyed, sanded again and


    dyed a second time.


    Now I'll be putting several coats of urethane on them, the pin nail them to the cabinet fronts.

    Sorry to hear of your illness. So this is a thick edge banding? Do you plan on applying more finish after these are installed?

    Yeah, on the mend but it's not fun.

    The edge banding will finished and then installed, glue and pin nails, then. Dark brown wax crayon to fill the pin holes and then clear wax all over it.


    Sanding and finishing these strips.


    Having these side by side when sanding them sure speeds up the process.


    On the flat and on edge.

    Here is something that I recently found, a very good, cheap solution for a messy problem.

    Our paint thinner comes in there large cans with a pop off lid. Pouring from the large container into a smaller one always makes a mess as the thinner seems to go everywhere except where you want it too.




    Well this little $1 spout solves all the problems!!


    It even has an air vent to aid the pouring.

    That spout is a great idea. Hadn't seen those before. There's a knack to pouring from those tins, but the spout does the job better.

    Our tins are not the same, I think, I know that trick and it works back home. The tins here have a pop on/off cap not screw on/off. The inside of the spout, if you will, is cupped. It makes a mess, even if you rotate it. Really I'm not that stupid LOL
