This corner cabinet was built of maple and maple plywood I had a tough time with the arch panel door. Not so much with the panel but the top rail as the first one split out as I was routing the inside groove. I learned to watch the grain direction more carefully I was very pleased with the finish I used. Usually staining maple is blot hey, but this time I tried out Old Masters wiping stain. This really beat the pants off minwax. After. The stain dried I applied a walnut gel stain as a glaze over the moldings and routed parts. Again this was a pleasure to see as it made the maple pop with shadows and shape. Two light coats of shellac as a sealer coat followed by some :320 light sanding and a finish of spray polyurethane…..I was surprised by the finish with little finish the finish to do, i was happy with the final results. Now onto the next project. Oh the size is 19 inches on the corner sides and the height is 37 inches.this worked out to be a nice design and fun filled project for me,so onto the next one!
