I am getting closer to finishing the knife block plus I've been busy building a few things for the shop as well.
Here is the knife block with a coat of boiled linseed oil on it. For the other projects please check out my blog

That's a great looking knife holder, Chick. That gives the Missus plenty to throw at you all in one spot! :bigrofl:

And I bet he didn't even think about that!
Terry's thing was coffee cups. When they were flying, better get out of Dodge! She was mad ALL the way thru!

Mom had a quilt display rack that my grandpa made for her, but It was unfinished pine which didn't match the oak cabinets in the kitchen. Mom asked me if I would clean it up and finish it for her.
Here is the before. I dont know how long it had been stored in the rafters of dad's garage.

Here is the finished product, I will try to get a better picture once they hang it up and it is in use.

I stained the pine to match the cabinets to the best of my ability but even using the pre-treatment the pine still took the stain unevenly. Then I applied 4 coats of shellac.

Pine is a pain to stain! But it came out looking pretty good to me.

I knew that going into this project, and even showed mom how un-even it could look, overall it looked okay, and as long it gets used now, and not put back in the rafters I will be happy and think Grandpa would be happy.
