Good day

That’s the second part of the glass cabinet WIP up to the point that I finished painting.

I’m using a Lacquer that is used here for wooden floors, very durable and more important, dries in 2 hours so I can apply it a few times in one day.
As you can see, I’m using the home made foam brushes.

Regards
niki

Niki; What are you going to use to hold your shelfs on and are they going to be adjustable ? Jim

Hi Jim

The shelves are ΒΌ” glass and they are held by special shelf pin for glass that has some transparent soft rubber or plastic.

According to the “order”, there are 3 shelves arranged in equal distances and I drilled holes only for those 3 shelves.

Thank you Pierre

The “elegant and simple design” belongs to my wife, I’m doing the “dirty job”....but I enjoy it soooo much

why did you describe the staining as a “sad moment”—-did something go wrong? Thank you, as always, for sharing the methods…it helps us new-bies…

Niki, I still think you should be a teacher. You do a great job, which helps us all out here on LJ.

Thank you so much

Napaman
I called it “sad moment” because I love the natural color and smell of the wood and staining is spoiling it.
Also, staining means that the “real work” is over and now it’s only “Brushing, brushing, brushing”
But, we have to follow orders…you know…
It makes me feel good to know that it helps new-bies to advance faster – Thank You

Ok, I’ll tell you a secret from my “dark past”.
Long time ago, I was an instructor for some 3 years and they tolled me the same but I preferred to work in the “field” and not in the classroom.
anyway, thanks for the compliment

Niki,

I agree with you that the natural color of wood is so beautiful. So far, I have’nt done much staining except for a couple pieces which were done with wood that needed a little boost.

But I tend to use the wood in its natural color…why would you bother sorting beautifull pieces
just to cover them up? Makes no sense to me. But I’m sure one of these day, I’ll have a request for a staining job.

have a good day,

pierre
