Default Finishing my Audio Rack. Many Pix

These are the legs for the bottom shelve. They are 3" waterpipe that will be painted bronze texture.

These are two of the next set of legs. I am turning them out of Poplar. These are my first peices turned on a lathe. I am really a metal guy.

This is just one of the next set of legs. I still have to make the other one. These will be painted Comilian Blue. P.S., for some reason the pictures on this are stretched. Click on them and they will come up normal.

These are the last set of legs. I welded them up from scrap from a laser cutter I know. They will be painted Comilian Green.

Can't wait to see them finished. You certainly have a well stocked garage and skills to match.

Thanks Astouffer. It is in the 20s today. I think it is time to buy a shop furnace.

I applied the first coat of Spar Varnish on the underside of all the shelves today. This is beautiful wood!!!

Hi Berndt. If you go to my Art site in my sig line, then look under vehicle art, there are more pix and an explanation. I built it a number of years ago.

I NEED YOUR OPINION!!!

I was planning today's activities and put one of the red legs on the newly varnished table tops and noticed a big color difference between the two. That got me thinking that maybe the spar varnish is not the right color (although I love the color) for this project.

In the pix below I put the red leg in the middle with the spar varnish above it and a clear urethane below it. These two projects used the same wood. When seen together it is clearly a big difference in color between the two finishes.

Which one do you like better???

It is more work than I antisipated but I'm having fun. If you click on my website link at the bottom of my post you'll find more about the motor bike there. I built it from the ground up and THAT was a lot of work.
