This project was conceived almost a year ago by my Mother in law and her partner. During the time I was working on it I have had knee surgery, a boss who ran away with all the money (not this project) and land partners who went crazy and had to be bought out of my property. Needless to say it took a lot longer than anticipated but it is finally delivered and installed (in itself an epic tale involving faulty trailer lights, police escorts and way too much money) and the MIL is happy and I get paid today! (Lee Valley here I come).
The frame, doors and shelves are Eastern Birch, the cabinet is birch ply trimmed with solid birch strips. The pulls, accents and plugs are from a piece of black walnut I salvaged from a friends firewood pile.
96 Mortise and Tenon Joints, many dados and rabbets, bookmatched doors (1 slider and two blum overlay), sliding dovetailed custom pulls, steambent birch hardwood trim, black walnut plugs in visible screw holes and other delightful features. I think I used almost every tool in my shop.
The whole thing measures approx 48” x 51” x 92”
Sanded to 220, Two coats of Arm-R-Seal Semi Gloss and one Coat of satin, sanded 400 between coats.
I am looking forward to thinking about something else… I think it might take a while.
Thanks for looking
