    Great looking stand! Now the question is - does the drill press match the stand color? That would be truly outstanding!
    I like making things. I have a wood shop at home. I am a terrible carpenter but I love doing it. Raymond - Charlotte, NC

    That's way too nice for a stand in my shop! What did you use for handles?

    Re: Limed oak drill press stand

    Bryan-Failed with several black stains because the solvent in wax would bleed it into the white.
    Settled on aniline water based dye that came from Highland Hardware and the Charlotte
    Wood show so long ago it was dehydrated. Brought it back with distilled water. Mixed
    some ag lime into butchers wax. Rubbed in the pores after opening them with a bronze
    wire brush. Buffed, and top coated with straight butchers. The peg got a coat of flat
    black which was here when we moved in-didn't appeal, so I put on two coats of shellac.

    Jim- The handles came from woodworker's supply when I did the original shop drawers
    in Durham(90's). They were cut out of oak(one) and maple/birch which I scratched in
    some faux grain.

    Very nice shop furniture! Thank you for explaining your finish process, truly intriguing Ed.
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.
