My daughter wanted a printer stand for her printer which has been on the floor for a few months now. Her only request was to make it look like the rest of furniture in her living room. With that in mind, I took several pictures of her furniture and began the project. The piece is made of pine and red oak with a 1/4” oak plywood door front. I put permanent shelves in place and used dovetails on the shelves.
I began assemble of the piece by gluing up and squaring the shelves.
I recessed the back to accommodate 3/4” tongue and groove pine as shown.
I used red oak in areas that would be seen the most such as the front trim around the top and the door. When seen from the front, it almost looks like it’s made of Oak.
Once assembly was finished I applied a coat of Minwax Pre-wood conditioner and a coat of Minwax Hickory Gel stain. I applied several coats of Polyurethane gloss finish to top it off.
