A couple years ago now, my son and I worked through some reclaimed 1x stock for him to take to school for a shop project: a Pewter Cupboard. He and I jointed the edges with ole’ Heft and Hubris (the #8, course!) and had fun with that, but it was his project to work over the course of the year at shop class. Well, he got close to completing it, but some final pieces were left undone and the carcase came home to roost. Here’s what it looked like at that stopping point:
No crown, no base under the doors. So it sat for about 14 months while I worked around it in the shop. Finally I had a number of items cleared and could dedicate some time to this cabinet. A shelf detail…
With those parts added, it was ready for finishing.
I went for milkpaint.
With a couple coats and some ‘stressing,’ it looked pretty good!
That’s it, thanks for looking!
