My brother built a residential addition that included a large 2 car garage and new entryway to the house.
The client had a tree trimming business and he had harvested some of the lumber, which he has been using in the trimwork of his house. With this addition he decided to use the last of it on these coat lockers.The budget did not allow for some of the ideas that I had, so this one is pretty straight forward and simple.
The wood is ash and I used a high build pre-catalyzed lacquer from Sherwin Williams, T77 F57. It has a high solids content and does not take as many coats to complete.
You may think that the finish would look like plastic by my description, but it does not. You can put anything on too heavy, but the look of this is easy to control. Most woodworkers’ point of reference and experience is the finish off the shelf from the box stores. Those finishes don’t compare to what you get at Sherwin or any of the competitive pro paint and finish stores. The finishes are formulated to be high performance in ease of application with speed and professional results.
It was quite difficult to get good photos in this room because of the size.
