Queen Anne Secretary, Made of curly maple. I always wanted to build one of these, I had been sitting on the lumber for several years, so I decided to just jump in and build one…turned out pretty good. Finished with J.E.Mosers aniline dye, a coat of boiled linseed oil, 2 coats of shellac, 1 coat of glaze, 2 more coats of shellac, several coats of wiping varish, a 2 coats of wax. Glen Huey design. Item is currently for sale, so if you know anyone that might be interested, give me a shout.

Excellent! Great job!

It saw a little scary mortising in the hinges on the slant top, huh?

This is an absolutely stunning piece of furniture. You did a wonderful job of finishing the piece. Maple can be a challenge to stain but you did a good job of bringing out the curl.

Thanks for sharing this.

So many cool pieces posted at once… This is my favorite.

Your finishing process sure sounds like a “process”. Is it a standard or something that evolved during execution?

Beautiful…...Stunning

Looks like a “snipe” mark on the door inside stiles under the lock/handle…....or maybe just the light playing tricks

Regardless…...............very nice
