Jerry,

Beautiful job on all of these machines.
Do you stain your pieces before assembly, or after? I copied your recipe for the stain for future use. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Rich thanks for the comment.

I usual stain the piece as I go. Then when I'm just about done before all the little handles and details are added I stain it again until I get the color I'm looking for.

Basically almost the same way Brett tells you to do it in the instructions.

I finished the lathe this afternoon. I really need to learn to take better pictures or a better back ground.

I'll do a group picture tomorrow.

If you keep going like this, sooner or later you'll have to think of a name!

Cheers,

Jerry,your "No Name Machine Shop" should be renamed the " Believeable Machine Shop"
Every piece you have completed,looks like it would really work once they are installed.
Great work!

But I need to start one soon.

Once again thanks for looking.

Dang, Jerry! All your machines look fabulous! I just wish I had the patience and dexterity for something even remotely close to your work! Well done!

Should we have a contest to name this machine shop ... ...?

CHEERS!

It's a pleasure to see you complete machine after machine of your shop, Jerry.
Since you were complaining about your pics (which, personnally, I find quite good) I played a little bit with Paint Shop Pro and got this.



By far, a work easier than assembling the kit, I'd add...

Jerry - another fine model for the soon to be shop.
I say "soon to be" because you will be needing somewhere
to place the units for safety sake (not getting broken)
You have done well my friend & I am looking forward
to the next episode.

Excellent work Jerry.

Didn't we already have a contest to name the shop?


As you think, so will you be.
