Next projects for Upper Cut: Fish tank stand and Shaker table

Now that the dresser is finished, it’s on to the next projects. I need to get moving on some bids, but the first two out of the gate are ready to go.

What is this pile of maple and birch plywood going to be?


A saltwater fish tank stand for GAKMAN, the Upper Cut intern that donated his labor during the dresser build. Last night we broke down his sheet of maple into two sides, two doors, and a back. the BeastMaster made an appearance to cut these pieces. And most dadoes in the case are already done.


I’m going to try to build a Shaker Table for the Skyline Gridiron Club which is the booster club for the Skyline High school Spartan Football team in Sammamish, Washington. I’ll be using the Wood Whisperer Guild plans, since I haven’t built my table yet. I’ll use the TransTint dye and alcohol above to pop the grain before finishing.


I’m going to try out this Enduro Var from General Finishes on the table, it’s crosslinking and I can spray it with my Earlex HVLP. This is supposed to be a very nice finish,

Stay tuned for more updates in the coming days.
