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.
