My New Man Cave Was a Lot of Work But...

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 30, 2015, 10:05 AM
My basement wasn't very productive.
I knew what I needed to do but it was time and money.

Eventually I took the time. I found enough scraps right in the basement to set it all up the way I wanted to.
After that I just needed to buy a few gallons of paint and 4 sheets of plywood.
I covered what I could in plywood and stained it along with hand rubbed beauty clear coat. (4 coats with a rag)
I painted everything else.
Well, my friend helped with a lot of it and most of the painting, along with a bit from the family. It was a huge project.
I have 3 table saws but need 2 more to be how I want it. I will pick up a couple cheap used ones.

Every saw will be dedicated except 1 which will be multipurpose.
The rest will be all dedicated to its own job.

I did most of the wood work myself and even made my own 8' moldings. It was a great project while it lasted.

I put a 2"x 8" board into the first saw and keep going around to other saws and a router and the end result is my own canvas stretcher frames or handcrafted frames for staining.
I've been doing frames for over 2 years now and I think last was #77 so I have made my share.

Below find before and after pics and some others.
Enjoy :eager:
