So, we have started laying out the 8/4 Knotty Alder top. The plan was to have the front edge natural like in the pics. This will match the mantle in our family room. The I started thinking, being I am trying to be creative. ( which is hard at times for me.)
Do you fellow LJ’s think I should use a natural edge on the back as well? Or just have a cut edge instead? The front reveal will be 1 ½” max, you well be able to see some of the back trough the family room Patio Door thru vertical blinds. ( Blondie likes sun in the house) I planned to do the back same or maybe 1 inch.
I will be cutting a soft curve on the ends to soften it up some. I plan on putting inlayed bow ties for the cracks and will be applying Epoxy to fill in the knots. The top along with the base will be a little darker than the case as I will be doing a 2 tone Entertainment Center.
Hope the pics help. I Look fwd to hearing what you think.
The first pic is the back of the cabinet.
