Great money making hobby. Rustic and heavy duty. Made in back yard in North Georgia Mountians (foothills). They all turn out nice and we hate selling them but love the cash 🙂 Started as exercise, turned into cash cow.. Even though we have become really good at this, I think we will keep our day jobs. 770.313.7042

All of your stuff looks great! I am just getting into making stuff like this and I’m struggling a bit with getting square cuts on my legs, so the bench will sit flat. Any suggestions, sir? Also what grit sand paper do you use last? Thanks for any advice offered.

Minwax spar Urethane high gloss.. 6 coats. Indoor/outdoor.. $35 a gallon. ! gallon goes a long way..All the furniture in this video used less than 1/2 gallon… This finish will last forever indoors. Outdoor use will have to be re-coated mabye 5 years..

How do you make them so glossy? And no, I do not know anything about working with wood. lol. But I’m guess its some sort of shellacking?
