This is something I built to show our stuff at a local art gallery. We knew we were going to dark stain this and so we chose ‘paint grade’ poplar.
The stiles have the outside edges double beaded. This gives the frame a bit of subtle style. The shelf edges are routed with a classic ogee, again for style and to ‘lighten’ the shelf.
The rails & stiles are connected with #10 biscuits using regular Elmer’s Carpenters yellow glue.
The two sections are connected with 1-1/2” hinges surface mounted on the center edges.
The finish was two coats of Minwax ‘Ebony’ stain followed by a wipe of clear urethane.
The unit folds for transport and one of the guys was doing arm lifts on it without a creak. (Alright, he wasn’t a giant! LOL)
