Not a lot accomplished on the ironing board cabinet this week. I managed to get the panels stained and 4 applications of wiping varnish (3 parts poly to 1 part mineral spirits) done over the weekend. Between coats of wiping varnish each piece was lightly sanded with 400 grit. They are smooth as glass!

After getting through the finishing I got the rabbets cut in the top and bottom panels to accept the sides as well as dadoes to accept the divider. I also got dadoes cut in the right side panel and divider to accept the shelves. Finally, I got screw holes drilled to countersink screws to put it all together.

Tonight I plan to get the rabbets routed out in the top, bottom and side panels to accept the back.
