3 boxes of mud on the wall. It's now sealed with a drywall sealer/primer. This remodel stuff is easy peasy!

That stuff you are calling dust is actually Man Glitter.

Hey guys I've got some small amount of tape residue on that cherry cap. What's good to use to take it off? Its lacquer.

Paint thinner. No acetone, no denatured alcohol. Maybe a citrus product.

Nice thing about simple lacquer is it will burn into itself for a nearly flawless refinish.

Re: My Office Remodel.


Everthing ties into my stair rails I built many moons ago. I can't even remember what I finished them with. I want to say poly.

Those stair beams used to be rough sawn wood. Butt ugly! I wrapped them with drywall and bullnose.

No he's not... can't you see that's the tool storage area?...

The two-by's are for a more rustic look and to stop the tools from overflowing onto the floor...

Re: My Office Remodel.


It's going to be behind the cabinets that are ordered. I want it left bare for wire access and a chase.

If that's all that is, you might want to consider still screwing some ply over it so it doesn't become a bug trail entrance point... they loves them some dark places to nest and grow... no sense in making it easy for them...
