2nd grade pine finished with amber shellac and wax. Layout for the door build was the most challenging...now I have 2 other doors that will need cabinets to! One will be a first aid cabinet for the garage.

It’s a rainy Thursday morning here at ‘Sellers Central’. The dark grey skies hold the promise of bright green grass to come, but for now Paul’s workshop is an amber-lit beacon of warmth on a particularly damp day.

It’s super-super hot here. At least, that’s what the non-Texan contingent of our team thinks. Still, it’s never too hot to admire the skills of our woodworking community, preferably with ice-cream in hand.
