« Part 11: Stain Before Glue Part 12 of Stickley inspired Entertainment Center series Part 13: Finally finished »

Bought Mission Style drawer pulls at Rockler. They had some Stickley pulls that I really liked but couldn’t talk myself into $40 each (I need 3). Something about paying as much for the drawer pulls as I did for the entire unit just didn’t sit right with me. Found some mission style pulls that were more like $7.50. They look pretty good, but not as “Stickley” as the Stickley ones:

Did some sanding of the third coat which is on the top of the unit using 280 grit sandpaper. Did a fourth coat of Spar Urethane on top of that and I am really happy with the results.

Think I need to do sanding and another Urethane coat on the sides to make them “feel” like the top.
