Sorry, I couldn't help but keep the bad puns going in the titles on this build, I was on too good of a roll to stop now. This is not just the last episode of the round pedestal series, this is also the last episode using my old video production setup. In fact, this commission actually funded all new video and production equipment for the blog production crew, so hopefully this will bring the podcast to a new level of quality. There's a whole new opening and theme song to look forward to, and I will also be offing HD downloads going forward, so don't miss the funky tool chest coming up next.
For this stage of the pedestal project I came in guns blazing - nail guns and spray guns that is. With a commission like this repeatability and efficiency are key, so I fine tuned my construction and finishing methods to speed up the process. I found that the Rockler HVLP can be a very cost effective way of bringing spraying to almost any shop. I also used a combination of brad and pin nailers to form the frame that will support the weight of a person on top of these stands - a quick but effective means of accomplishing the task at hand. Plus, the upcoming tool chest is going to rely heavily on hand tools, so I needed to get the air-power artillery out of my system. With that, a few links to include on this episodes show notes:
