I made this for my GORGEOUS wife for putting up with me for our first year of marriage! Our one year anniversary is this Sunday coming up, 3/25/12. I made one of these for my mother in-law last summer out of popular and stained it with All-in-One stain and poly, that was a learning experience to say the least. lol
I’m going to let it cure for another 4-5 days, then buff it smooth with White Diamond Compound and hang it up, maybe add a little extra anniversary present in there too :)
I made it out of 4/4 Black Walnut, used dovetails to hold the box together, blind daddo’s for the shelves, and tongue and grove for the door. Stained it with General Finishes water based Brown Mahogany, then sprayed 5 coats of water based Enduro Pre-Cat Urethane out of the Earlex 5500 HVLP – (NEW TOY) ......excuse to by a new toy for this project. Finish came our extremely well, can’t wait to finish my next project, the 5500 and water based finishes makes life so much easier!
