    kitchen bench and cabinet project

    After two + months working on this project, finally got them out of my tiny shop! Homeowner happy, gave me an extra $100. Not sure what tool I should get with the profit!

    Very nice, Bryan. Looks like Red Oak, to me, and good use of MDF where expensive Good Wood would not show and was not needed.

    If you don't mind, a little more detail would be most enlightning......i.e. Type of Wood, Finish type, and so on. Not only I, but I imagine others would love to hear about it too.
    mdf, oak plywood, solid oak fronts and tops of cabs, finished with two coats minwax provincial stain, 1 coat sanding sealer and a few coats of satin lacquer sprayed on with a HVLP Fuji turbine system.

    Next question, (there's always a next question, right?), Your Fuji HVLP, is it a Q4? If so, how's it work for you? We have one at work stuffed in a storage closet that hasn't been used in over 2 years.
    It's a second hand Q3, thats seen a lot of use by a cabinet maker. To me, it's an upgrade from my Wagner fine coat HVLP turbine. Has a few features the Wagner doesn't have. I can atomize thicker fluids with the Q3 that the Wagner couldn't. But in the end , I can do just as good a job with the Wagner using Lacquer. The Q3 will be better handling water based than the Wagner, something I couldn't get it to spray very well. The Q3 has a monster turbine compared to the Wagner, a lot more air volume.

    That's a great-looking piece of work, Brian. Definitely worth being proud of.

    I really like the built-in look, and it looks like a very practical project too (for me - three kids under 9). BTW: I'd dance a serious jig if I could get projects like that done in two months.
