    "Running" in the shop

    Sometimes, even a hobby can have its monotonous moments.

    I had to make a bunch of these "runners" Click image for larger version.

    Eventually this bedroom storage will have around 26 drawers (there's another built in on the other side of the room) ranging in depth from 12" to 2" and oooooodles of shelf space, all neatly concealed behind some frame and panel doors.

    PS - Don't let the LOML know I took pictures in our messy bedroom!

    If she sees it, tell her I've been working on this for 5 years! That should discourage her.

    Nice project Rennie. So do you wax the runners or just leave them unfinished?

    Hi Robert - Thanks! I always enjoy your comments (you always flatter me ). At the rate I'm knocking items off the Honey-do list I should have it complete about 2 years after I've passed on to better things!

    Hi Darren - Actually I Sand them to 220, give them 2 coats of dewaxed shellac sanding to 320 between and after the last coat, then put on 2 coats of past wax. I also wax the groves which are finished with the sides of the drawers. They get one coat of dewaxed shellac and 3 coats of a wipe on poly. I like to finish the insides of my drawers so they are super smooth and won't harm any of my wife's, uh, unmentionables.
