Over the weekend, finally made some shop-time to finish up this LP cabinet/shelf. I’m a huge Bruce Springsteen fan, so I found a way to incorporate some of the commemorative posters & set lists from the various (fine, seven in roughly four years) shows I’ve seen. Those set lists are available as PDFs on his website – his handwriting.
I used Mod-Podge to decoupage the posters onto the birch plywood (hell, better’n staining. After two years and a move to high-humidity TX, the wood itself was ruined), some bright-as-flames red paint & poly for the trim, and tung oil for the tapered red oak legs.
When I get older (and my collection grows somewhat) I’ll make the legs thicker & taller, use thinner plywood on the sides and top and make my own moldings. This was another learning project for me. Simple to make, but I still need to learn the ol’ attention-to-detail.
When I get around to it, I’ll update this post – I’m going to make rice-paper shoji cabinet doors using Born To Run posters…should look great.
