I still have to condition it and oil it and find a top for it but you can get the picture.
In retrospect there are quite a few things I would do differently after learning to use some tools in the shop but that's how you learn right?
I'm also sad to say that I missed out on a great craigslist piece. It was posted last week but I was working towards a deadline so I didn't even think of checking craigslist. My mind was on maximizing sleep. Are you wondering what it is?

It was a brass Sarreid chest. It was $100. It retails for a few thousand... sigh.
But....... dahn dahn dahn (suspense music) .... I did find a great mid-century china cabinet on saturday! It didn't fit in my car so it is still at the shop. The boy and I are renting a uhaul van on friday and bringing the baby home. It was manufactured by Drexel and it's a sought after line designed by KS and SD. Oh.. and it has ceramic pulls!
