I am impressed with my carpentry skills, today. I made myself a fitted desktop for an alcove.


Look, there's even proper joints, and everything! Not bad for someone who hasn't used a chisel since GCSE Craft Design and Technology lessons, during which I mostly played cards with Philip Winter, from what I remember...


Anyway. I'm happy, because that's a piece of furniture I can start using and won't have to clear back out of the lounge when the wooden floor gets laid.

Although I do need to oil, wax or varnish it in some way. Anyone know much about finishing pine?
