Mission Style, Red Oak TV stand made to match a customer’s existing sofa table. It was constructed using mortise and tenons and dadoes, and the construction and design was fairly straightforward. The most difficult part was the finish. I used the “Jeff Jewitt” method of finish, which involves water based dye to match the base color, a shellac seal coat, an oil based glaze coat to highlight the grain, and 2 coats of satin Arm-R-Seal. The color matched the sofa table almost perfectly. All in all, it was a fun project. Let me know what you think

EDIT-The top is not bowed, I think its an optical illusion…or something with the camera. Who knows

Nice clean lines, proportions and a beautiful finish. Great job. I would think that the customer is very pleased with the results.

Very nice. I have a TV stand on the list for my parents. Happen to have a sketchup file for this one?

I have one, but its VERY basic. I normally use sketchup to get my overall dimensions/proportions, and then adjust my project on the fly. It doesnt have any of the mortise and tenons modeled in, but it will give you an idea of the dimensions. How would one go about sharing a sketchup project on here? Email?

Just messaged you with my email. Basic is fine. I’ll likely change the dimensions anyway to fit my parent’s living room. Thanks!
