Today, after some final sanding, it was time to start assembly. The top and shelf surfaces were glued and dropped into place.
The drawer front was glued on.
Then I drilled the holes for the knobs my wife picked out.
She picked these because they are the same ones on her jewelry cabinet. She said she likes them and wanted the same.
I’m using Minwax Dark Walnut stain. This is one of my favorite stains. It gives off a different effect depending on the wood and how you apply it. You can obtain a darker finish by leaving it on longer. I like the look it gives on cottonwood though by brushing it on and then immediately wiping off with a lint free rag. So that’s what I’m doing.
The last few photos I believe speak for themselves.
The only thing left to do now is to finish it with polyurethane. So that’s it. I’ll show it off to everyone in a couple of days in the project section.
I hope everyone has enjoyed the journey.
