Toolbox Project – Finishing

Now that the build is completed, the next phase of the project begins.  Finishing is a challenging time; you are happy with the construction of the piece, the joinery is good, everything is flush and square, and you are ready to be done.  Yet as our instructor Steve Brown told us, the finish is the first thing that a customer sees; their first impression and interaction with your work, and it can make or break the piece.  As I start this, I have to step back, take a breath, and engage this phase deliberately.
