« Part 10: Finishing (Boring) Part 11 of Shaker Cherry Nightstand - Handtool heavy series no next part

Onto the celebration! The case lacks only wax. Flood BLO, #1 Shellac sealer, Poly x 3. Turning a knob out of rosewood on the lathe. Spindle work, no chucks here! (lazy)

Freehand tapping for the screw; the pillot was done on the drill press (honesty).

The knob. Notice my turpentine/beeswax jar customized by my fiance’, complete with little bees buzzing about.

Installed! It’s an unusual choice of wood but I love it.

Steakums (dog) approves of it in his nook. Michaelbear (bear) and Yaeger (cat) appear to approve, as well.
