Just finished this piece to move the TV from over the fireplace. First attempt at wedged tenon breadboard ends and am pleased with the result. Love the look of QSWO.

Very nice! May I ask where you got the plans? Also, the finish recipe?

No plans but got inspiration from Mission Sideboard in a recent FWW. I will get back with you on the finish when I make it out to the shop later today.

Finish method can be found on homesteadfinishing On the website select resources and look for the Stickley Mission Finishing Guide PDF. I used sample 2 which is reddish brown Transtint dye followed by 1 coat SealaCell followed by General Finishes Georgian Cherry Gel Stain, followed by 4 Coats armRSeal satin. Check out the website. I’ve used Jeff’s method on several pieces and always had great results.
