Today was 'do some sanding before the skies open up and rain for a week straight' day.
Got in a bit of sanding today. I went from 80 grit up to 180 grit. I think this should be good enough to apply tung oil onto.

Systainers are addictive. :)
Getting my tools organized, with the help of some #Tanos   #Systainer  boxes... and snagged a couple more #Bessey  clamps on the cheap today. Just need 2-3 more Systainers of various sizes and every tool will have a nice, organized home.

Teaching myself SketchUp - this was 10 minutes of playing around. I still have a lot to learn, but it's pretty fun so far.
Teaching myself SketchUp... I'm trying it out by mocking up a design I am planning, and one thing I noticed is I don't like my design in the dimensions that I originally chose. So, that's one good reason to use SketchUp it seems.

"I totally have enough clamps." - Said no woodworker ever. 
I'm almost done with all the gluing, thankfully. Then the real fun stuff can start!

More progress on my #woodworking   #project  ! The #DIY  build of a #reclaimedwood  desk top. It's been a wild ride so far. 
The reclaimed barnwood desk project continues - this time its all about the prep work for finishing.

What I got up to last night... 
Finally had some time to work a bit on the reclaimed barnwood desk project. I'll be gluing edging around the whole thing. One edge at a time.

Another "Better than IKEA" project - was a complete failure, but it's one way to learn.
