Faceplate Complete

June 1, 2011

I should have had this finished this weekend, but the shellac developed a bit of blush. So I had to sand it a bit, wipe it with alcohol and let it set up again. All and all I butchered the shellac. 😦 But rather than scraping it off and starting over, I was able to just sand the surface and apply a coat of wax and all the problems disappeared!

I made this faceplate because for some reason the thermostat was installed over a double switch box. The new thermostat that I purchased did not cover the opening completely. I am pretty happy with the result.

    Very nice, I like it. It also makes a good feature of your thermostat.

    Project and the finish turned out nice, James.
