That’s it, I just finished my TV stand last weekend. It was my first project with round shapes. Very challenging!
I used beech for this project.

The curves look nice. What’s on the side doors. Are there speaker in there?

I agree, very classy build. Great job on the curves. The finish looks great. What type of finish did you use?

This is a nice looking piece of furniture that would be a compliment to any home’s decor. I like the curves that you added to the piece. I have not had the courage to try these yet but they do an interesting detail to the look of the entertainment center. Nice job, Dominique.

Thanks guys for your comments.
I tried a new finish technique, it turned out to be very nice.

- 2 coats of shellac (amber) / just add up 20% of denatured alcohol so it does not dry to fast Sand 300
- Apply some linseed oil, wipe off the excess (let it dry for a few days)
- 1 coat of shellac (amber) / same just add up 20% of denatured alcohol
- Sand 400
- On this project I applied some glaze (give age)
- 1 coat of shellac (amber) / same just add up 20% of denatured alcohol
- Sand 600
- 2 coats of polyuretham

Linseed oil really gives some depth to the wood.
