    If it wasnt for bad luck Arrrh:mad:. I'm delivering this to a charity auction on Monday and finally finished this up today, got last coat of oil on, sharpened and polished the blade, went to put the rubber feet on and knocked it over into the miter gauge on the table saw. Several nice dents in the top. I was able to steam most of them out but they are a bit noticeable, at least I know they're there.

    You made that? Wow, nice work! Will heated oil help with the scratches?

    Yes Thanks Sheldon, no heated oil will expand the glue joints, I took an old rag soaked in water and heated a pice of steel and pressed it into the rag. The steam expands the wood and evaporates where the oil stays in the wood.
    Thanks Mack just pissed me off a bit as the last thing I do screws it up o_O

    If it didn't piss you off you would be worthless as a craftsman. You aren't going to do that again. Trust me on this.

    Thanks Johnny I was smart enough to put a small rare earth magnet in the Bocote to keep it from falling out when upside down.

    Still such a beautiful set! I bet the lucky winner won't mind so much!

    Cool idea on the steam! I'll write that one down for future "oh-craps"!!

    Looks great. I'm sure no one will notice any "dents" but I know how it is..once you see something you messed up you can never un-see it. But to the rest of us it's beautiful work.

    Thanks Tim, if it would have happened before I oiled it I could have run it through the drum sander. I still would be pissed but would have been no biggee. After like five or six coats of oil that's outta the question. Hopefully it will fetch a decent buck for the organization.

    Only got to use it to open some boxes (clear packing tape) at the office. Remember the old fiberglass reinforced packing tape? Now that was worthy of cutting with a great knife;):p. This new stuff is cut by most people with a key. Sad.

    Was in the big city today and saw this. I know there are some car gurus out there. Any idea what this is?

    Looks like an El Camino and Ford Probe got together and had an illegitimate love car?
