« Part 12: Final touches and off to the FINISHING BOOTH !!! Part 13 of Building a Credenza series no next part

Here is the final photo to wrap up this blog:


My finishing guy let me do the final assembly in his shop so I wouldn’t have to move it twice. Then I took it directly to my friends photo studio where I did the photography. From there my dad helped me move it up to his house where it will stay for a few months until I have a big enough living room to keep it in.

Total building time so far: Just over 150 hours

And here it is!

Don’t know how I missed this blog series when they were posted but I have just spent the last hour going thru all 13 parts, you never fail to amaze me Blake. Every piece you make has it all: great design, function, wood choice, grain match, joinery, finish, hardware All make for such a pleasing to the eye end result.

I’ve enjoyed this series very much and the end result is awesome. Are you pleased with it? Good luck getting it back from your dad. :)
