If you want a finish that is as hard as a rock--SW Sayerlack (waterborne) with cross linker. We installed a 680 pound locker top on a wood seat, the last 6" we had to push it in place across the top. Not a scratch in the top. I was impressed.

What did you spray the sayerlack with?

So the linear foot price I came up with was $400/lf for 16 linear feet of custom base cabinets with custom book cases above.

From some googling, that seemed an ok price.  What's the consensus here?

Nope. ;) While it is handmade, not by mine ;)

Kind regards,

One of my aspirations in life is to build a German Christmas pyramid.  Your advent project looks very similar.

Just repairing the candle arch ... Building a pyramid is definitely another level. :) Would you plan/layout it yourself if you did it, or use available/bought plans? There are quite a couple of shops dedicated to scrolling, selling plans, like this one: https://laubsaegenshop.biz/epages/75b27a44-6f98-45b7-9db3-e355e79ea05e.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/75b27a44-6f98-45b7-9db3-e355e79ea05e/Categories/59/4 (Not affiliated!)

Hi Oliver - I'll definitely look at the plans, but I was thinking of buying a kit for my first go at it.  For this Christmas I may just buy one assembled for my wife - she loves them.

Hi Harvey,

thought of you today. It's my job to assemble this every year and place new candles into the candle holders once they are done.

My parents bought this decades ago for my grandparents, now it lives on, here. It's not high end by any means, but nice to look at anyway. :) Thought you, maybe your wife, might enjoy the pics! :)


...

Kind regards,
Oliver


Very cool!  I had a friend whose family had one when I was growing up, and I used to love being able to watch it.  I ordered the kit from Erzgebirge-Palace - should be here soon.


Cheers,


John

Back in the 90'ties when I was still working in my father's spray shop we had a furniture factory next door who exclusively worked with MDF and we had to spray all their work. Can't remember which paint we always used, but it was a high solid water based paint.

You guys still have way better products than we do over here.

Hadn't picked that up @skinee - thanks. Would have thought the split collar would have been the default considering the price of the kit...

They also are NOT made like the blow molded cases of varying sizes that seem to come with so many power tools now.

And that’s a good thing.  [big grin]  I currently own only 2 blow molded cases. One for a Milwaukee mag drill and one for a Milwaukee 8 1/4” metal cutting saw. All other blow molded cases have been punted down the road...good riddance.

At least they had cases, it bothers me more the ones that don't, so many of there tools now don't have them.  I just wish Milwaukee had standardized the shape some on them years ago.  They didn't need full blow systainer, just have common footprint that interlocks.  Of course had they done that the world would never know the sound of a Milwaukee jenga stack fall.
