How to build a DOCK BOX
Those of us who spend a lot of time at the dock know how much stuff can accumulate down here over the course of the day you know what I hate picking up after my dock side guests time and time again besides where am I going to put this wet stuff well today we're gonna work on a storage solution called a dock box to solve this problem found these plans for a dock storage box in Canadian home workshop magazine it's a pretty straightforward project I've got a couple of scraps of three quarter inch ply.
That we're going to use for the ends First we're going to rip them to width and then we're going to basket bottom profile plans call for a centre eight inches from the top of the basket and we want a six inch radius or other words half the basket width Clamp these together and cut them out with my jigsaw I'm going to give them a quick sanding just to tidy them up So, here we are we got a couple finished slats.these come out of five quarters by six cedar.
Really don't have to but it looks a lot better if you do some treatment to the edge alright ready for assembly I got my basket ends and my basket is upside down obviously We've got the basket finished time to do the legs plans call for two and a quarter by two and a quarter legs So, I'm going to have to rip this four by four cedar to that dimension So, I need four at seventeen These are going to be positioned like this.at both ends Here we go! Done and done!.
Now we're on to the lid! I'm gonna glue five together, good quality outdoor wood glue notice that bead dead centre that's because I know what I'm doing I'm a trained professional I've left these long because I'll cut it to length after it dries Now the worst part of this of course is that you have to wait for the glue to set.and that's going to take the good part of an hour so What am I going to do in the meantime Alright glue is set I'm just going to take the mark clamps off.
Plans call for the lid to be seventy inches in length So I'll cross cut that to length We've prompted to use these nice decorative tee hinges and most importantly They're super easy to put on could be a little overkill but I'm gonna use number nine three inch deck screws Now the plans don't call for it but you can see I added a chain stay to prevent the kids or my soninlaw from ripping the hinges out Let's get this thing down to the dock Well this dockside box sure is a big improvement.

Repair Scratches on Furniture With Polyurethane Wood Finish
Today we'd like to show you how to restore the look of your kitchen or dining room table. This method is easy to do, and it produces excellent results. Shabby DIY We started by moving the chairs out of the way. Then we throughly wiped down the table with rubbing alchohol. You want to remove any oil or wax from the surface. Ours had a layer of wax which you can see on the paper towel. Next you'll want to get a bag of triple zero steel wool. We used steel wool because it contours well to any surface and it's not overly abrasive. We just want to add a new top coat.
The surface will turn hazy once you start to sand it with the steel wool. Next the wipe off all the dust left over from the steel wool. Using a sharpie, we can hide some of the small scratches. Now we can separate the table leaf. We are using an fast drying, oil based, gloss polyurethane. We started by dipping a paper towel and coating the edges of the table to reduce the risk of any drips onto the floor. Next we can use a foam brush and coat the top of the table.

Alright. Now, we've just compounded our board. We've got it all smooth and slick. Really feels good to the hand, to the touch. And, this is the kind of finish that if you walk up to it and it's just asking you to touch it you know you've done a good job. It looks good, it feels good. And, you've achieved what you're after. The very last thing we're going to do is, the protective wax that we're going to put on. This just gives a very thin barrier to the surface so it doesn't change anything. Just a little dab will do you to.
On this stuff. Again, it's an industrial product by 3M. And, it will just clean it up a little bit. And, give it a little protection, but it won't change anything that we've done so far. Other than, just make it look a little bit richer and deeper. And again, you just put this one and keep buffing until it all disappears. And, then find another clean spot on your rag and give it one final buff. Alright, this is basically your finished product. It's just a finish on a small sample board.
You know, we started with a board like this. We ended up with a finish like this. In between, we had to put a filler on. This is what a lot of people avoid, is this step right here. And, if it weren't for this step, you wouldn't have this clear flat surface. You'd have a real grainy open pored finish. So, of all the finishing I've done today the most important thing is this filler. Once this is on and applied properly, you get a much prettier finish in the end. So, as you can tell when we start with something as simple as a piece.
Of mahogany plywood we can turn it into a really nice finish. Same thing we do on old furniture. Something you may have around the house, you want fixed up you can take it down the bare wood and bring the finish back in something like this. And, bring it back to where it was in it's original beauty. You can also take dining room tabletops and things like that and refinish. So, this is just a small scale of what we do on a large scale. But, to give you an idea all the steps are the same. And, a lot of times you'll hear.
