My Equipment

There are times I get asked what camera equipment, what software, and what tools I use. I thought this might be a way to refer anyone who ask and give you a better idea of what kind of equipment I like to use. Of coarse I have some updates to do and other tools. The list below is a good start to my collection and will continue to add to this list and refer anyone who ask about what I use to this list. All the link are added and some tools has been updated sense I’ve purchased them. I provided the updated tool link, but have no experience with the newer version.

I set out to accomplish two things with this build. One I wanted to try this new finish method I learned from “Ask This Old House” The showed a method of using Gorilla Glue for a finish and it turn out awesome. It looked easy enough so I wanted to do it. Second, I never build a box using grain matching techniques before. I wanted the grain to wrap around the box, also book match the lid panel.  That was the whole plan behind this build.
