The Vin Rouge Report

yes, I am still working on the Vin Rouge Project. I was hoping to complete the project while on vacation last week, but sheer laziness is a bitch to overcome! I wasn't completely lazy last week, here's a quick breakdown on how the week went:

Monday and Tuesday I worked on the Vin Rouge chairs.
Wednesday I went with my brother-in-law to pick up his daughter at the airport.
Thursday was spent overeating Turkey and other goodies.
Friday was recuperation day from overeating on Thursday!
Saturday I got a new toy that we'll talk about later.
and finally Sunday, I got back to working on the chairs.

I've now got one full coat left to apply and then some touch-ups in the nooks and crannies. Here's an updated pic on a closeup of the bottom:



I've also been trying to work on the nightstand that I started oh so long ago. I'm building this out of Red Oak. I like the color and it's freaking heavy! I screwed up on a couple things, so it's not my favorite project, but it should look ok when done.

If it looks anything like my nightstand, it will be gorgeous!

What "New Toy" ? I thought that was a x-mas present that you didn't know about yet.

That vin rouge is a beautiful color. I can't wait to see the red oak nightstand. What kind of finish will you use on it?

I'm going with a clear poly. the birdseye drawer front is really light colored and I want to make sure the eyes pop as much as possible.
