Here is a curio / entertainment cabinet that i just completed. It is made of quarter sawn white oak. It stands 84” high 21-3/4” deep and has tapered sides that measure 25” at the top and 27” at the bottom. The finish is a mission finish that is comprised of multiple steps including water based dye (Homestead Transfast Dye Powder, Dark Mission Brown) Watco Danish oil (light walnut) amber shellac then general finishes top coat. It was a fun project to build, the top area holds electronics and the middle area holds beer steins and a few other things. The bottom holds a sub woofer the slats on the sides and front can all be easily removed as the slide in a dado routed in the sides and front. Thanks for taking the time to have a look!
