This is a DVD/Cupboard I made for my grand daughter. She didn’t specify what she actually wanted, so I made it to look like a colonial cupboard. At first, she didn’t know what type of stain/finish she wanted so I was going to use a colonial pine finish. Half way through the build, she decided she wanted it Black. Later she settled for a dark stain which as many of you know, pine is still pine even after you apply stain. This is the first time I’ve ever used Gel Stain and I like it. The stain color I used was Hickory, that way I could at least keep it dark for her. The dimensions are 63” tall. The bottom is 18” deep and 24” wide. The top is 8” deep. I used a couple of cleats to attach the cupboards together (which is shown in the unfinished photo) or separate for travel. This is also the first time I made a door using my router. The back is T&G pine same as the door front. I used Poly Urethane Aerosol spray for the finish. Thanks for looking.
