Gonna need many, many more light coats of this thinned translucent red, maybe mix in a bit of gloss medium on later coats

Dave’s been watching those motorcycle shows where they go through the steps of painting the ghost flames on motorcycles and doing the candy coatings. Well done. Should be a real treat, especially if all of the knights and support mechs are done the same.

Oh, now it looks really good. Just enough variation to add shades of red."

O/T, but this is the 1:1 project I've been working on today

Before


After


nothing fancy, but my Wife's Birthday Present is installed, the new dishwasher. The Birch Butcher Block countertop needs the finishing done, that will take many coats and many sandings, and then many coats of Spar Urethane, then I want to add a tile (or maybe stainless steel?) backsplash, and finally hang the magnet strips I got for my kitchen knives, then there are pot lights for overhead. There is no reason my Food Prep area is not as well-equipped as my model prep area

Fully with you on the kitchen front...it needs to be equipped as anything else...the right tools for the right job...i dunno why birch was used...a nice walnut or cherry wooden look I think would have looked better together with the wall and the cupboard ? Also, while I totallysee why a steal backsplash would be the pinnacle of hygiene...tiles would look more stylish...but my views might be clouded from upbringing here...what are the other copies in the kitchen of yours? Chairs and table and such things?

Birch was used, because that is all that was available locally. This section of the kitchen will be the beta for the rest of the kitchen remodel eventually, so you can ignore the wall color, like the rest of the house, it all had a sloppy coat of what I call "Flip it tan" on everything before we bought it. Cherry or Walnut would have been an expensive special order. All the old cabinets are a dark walnut stain. I know white kitchen cabinets are now the trend, but I don't care, I don't want to spend the rest of my life cleaning cabinets. The people who own those magazine kitchens never ever cook, and therefore never make a mess. i do. A lot.

Good solid work bud, totally with you, kitchen most important room in the house. Personally like the mixing of timbers, just all has a nice warm feel to it.

For the splash back have you considered glass. Stainless is ok, but takes maintainance to look good, tiles are durable, but the grout is a pain after a few years. Look into putting toughened glass. easy wipe, stain resistant and if you are feeling fancy you could do something on the wall behind the glass that will be seen through it.

I've seen the glass tiles, and yeah I heard you can paint behind them for crazy effects. I dunno. Let me get through this project first. I bought a Random Orbital Sander (the excuse I needed to buy myself a birthday tool) and took off the water-based stain, it looked horrible the next day, like BAD. and I used some scrap block from these hobby benches to try out different finishes. I'm going all the way on this one, totally committed

in Hindsight Vik, I wish I'd bought a different wood with more varied wood tones, but I have work to do to make these boards stand out. This will teach me how to finish a softer hardwood properly.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

Just coming off the back of a kitchen remodel / refresh myself so I know what you're about to go through... Although we did go with gloss white this time - those shiny magazine covers won us over finally Plus it makes our kitchen so much more bright and fresh, but we have a lack of natural light in there as it's in the middle of the house with no outside windows to let the light in ! Not so bad to keep clean either. We'd had the dark wood (original kitchen), beech wood effect and now gloss white. Next time I'm thinking a fresh oak may be on the cards, but that's a good 15+ yrs away (unless we happen to move before then)

BTW, that red carapace is glorious

And it gets better looking with age Best pad sander I ever owned, and still do, is my 1/4 sheet Porter Cable. The thing is a warrior.

I installed a dishwasher once. Man what a PITA. Getting the thing levelled... so rage inducing. I hope you had a frustration free experience.

Ah Vik, cherry would be way too soft. Walnut, although gorgeous, is not something I would use because it is a bit soft too, and has the oils in it. Turns one fingertips purple sometimes when one works with it. Dave made a good choice here.

Love the woodwork,

And for the backsplash, agree with Cam, glass all the way. No tiles (those would still need grouting, and that's a long term pain in the neck, speaking from my own kitchen counter in this), one glass panel stuck to the (prepainted, single colour or some fancy design, your choice) wall. Very resistant too when it lays flat (very important, this!) against a wall too.

And there was something else I wanted to mention...

Ah, yes: Knight is looking gorgeous.

There were about 80 pages in the middle where the images didn't work. The beginning and end were fine though.

I can't get enough necromunda (GW's best IMO) so it was fun for me. You do great work. Pleas ekeep it up.
