Now that the flight sim desk is done, I'm back at work on the nerd hole bench. Over the weekend I attached the mouldings to the sides of the carcases, then drilled the holes for the pocket screws in the already cut parts of the face frames. Figuring that it would be easier to finish the individual rails and stiles while they're still detached from each other, I started staining them tonight. If they behave like the mouldings, it's going to take four applications of the stain to get the color depth I want. One down, three to go.
