Jane and I moved into a new place. The previous owners left some furniture that we're slowly cleaning and refinishing. It's fantastic stuff that's been neglected for a few decades.
I started off with the dining table turned garage table and now returned to a dining table.
There were stains that went all the way through the veneer in some places. Judicious sanding and a nice dark finish hid most of them really well.
The hardware and slides are absolutely fantastic. I didn't realize it was veneer until I had...sanded all the way through the veneer in one spot. Otherwise, this came out beautifully. I'm really pleased with this extra little bit of the place that we got to keep.

I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
