Great job on that one, it took several hours to do! The proportions look great as well.
I am planning the same set up except the upper part to be curios instead of bookshelves.
That way the wife can put all the nick knack in one place!!! Yea right!!

Very nice. Just a poly finish – or what did you use?

Thanks everyone.

The finish is tung oil/varnish mix, with 4 coats of Crystalac, which is a water based spray finish.

This is another beautiful piece. I firmly believe that a home cannot contain too much wood and this certainly helps confirm that philosophy. I just hope that you had plenty of help moving the sections in for installation. :)

Simple design with nice details. Proportions are good too. This isn’t your first rodeo.

Have your say...
