Printer table update #3 or 4?

It's been a while since I last seen my parents and I believe it's been even longer since I last worked on the printer table I've mentioned a few times before.

After a few months of this being set aside for various reasons I finally had the chance to work on it! About two weeks ago I put all the peaces together (top included) and I sanded the rough areas.

Personally I think that it turned out looking awesome! Especially since this is the first wood project I do :D

If I where to take it and compare it to what my little brother has been working on... well...

Yeah... It defiantly isn't as pretty lol I also got a lot of help from my dad and well he didn't need help...  My brother is really talented!

I got more time to work on the table last week. I did more sanding and stained it and i had a little extra time left to put on a first coat of varnish.

My dad had fun taking pictures and my brother helped out with the staining so that it would go a little faster.

Hopefully I'll get some time this week to give it another coat of varnish.

I'm back on track... untill november...

It looks like this blog is yet another project i had put on the side to participate in other activities...
Even if I have been quiet on this blog I have been very busy with other things... I had a few camping trips planned and so did my dad. I also had to take time away from creating things because I started looking for a house. Between visiting mortgage ppl, financial advisors, visiting houses and the usual summer fun, All the projects I had one the go where put on hold. But the search is over :) finaly.

I found the house I wanted and I have a supper good interest rate for the mortgage... now I just have to wait until November 30th to move in...

I already have some plans for the place and projects in mind. Most ideas are about making the place look like the unreal rooms in my head (I've already started making a list of all the things I want to do and it's already extremely long :S ). Anyways I might have to stop posting for a little while in November and December since i'll have to pack up everything I've got in the appartment and then unpack everything but I shoudl have many projects on the go after I'm settled in to the new place ;)

Until then I'll keep working on the printer table and I have a few sewing projects that where also put on hold that I'll be getting back to. After these are done I might start thinking of things that would revolve a little more around things I'll need at the new house... like pillows and paintings and I'm not sure what else... I would like to do another project with my dad once I'm done the table but I don't have the exact sizes of the rooms.

Anyways I'll be back soon with updates.
