This is the second piece of a three piece order for a client wanting to showcase a “Popeye” memorabilia collection. The wood is ash which has been painted with milk paint on the base and finished with a pickling stain on the top and shelves. The ship’s wheels are oak with aged copper accents. The “roof” is galvanized metal which has been etched with a phosphoric acid solution.

Absolutely UBER COOL!!

It is a shame the hutch was set in a corner. it doesn’t do justice to the other “half” of the ships wheel.

Beth, that’s a cool look with the milk paint and pickling stain. Great detail with the Ship’s wheel and the galvanized metal. It all works well together. I’m with lew, too bad it’s in a corner. Great job.

Well, I like the desk and hutch by themselves but what really “sells” these pieces for me is Popeye and Bluto! Great job!

-- Mistake? No, that's just an unexpected design opportunity....
