I have spent the last few weeks sanding and finishing my Freestanding Cabinet. I sanded the cabinet to 500 grit inside and out, and up to 1500 grit on the top, sides and door panels. Then I layered on 6 coats of hand-rubbed Formby’s low-gloss tung oil & varnish, and then I polished it with 3 coats of wax.
Then I was able to get to a friends photography studio and shoot some better photos. I took the photos myself but she was nice enough to lend me the space, the backdrop, and the professional remote-controlled strobe lighting. This was the first time I’ve ever had access to a professional studio to take pictures of a project, I was pretty stoked with the results. Here’s a little plug for her website: KerrieLeePhotography.com
I updated the project page with the new photos so check it out!
