I have made a few of these for family and friends. They are pretty handy by the front door. This one I thought I would leave natural and used a water based polyurethane. I was very disappointed in the results. It made the oak look like plastic – go figure right? Live and learn I guess.
The second one is made from ~6/4 stock (Elm? Ash? (I think it came from a shipping crate)) and I sandblasted an inscription in the glass, using contact paper as a mask.

Both are very nice and useful. Did you use plans or is it your own design?

This one goes in the favorites – I’ve been thinking of building one for our foyer, and this fits the bill precisely.

It is my own design, it evolved from mirrors and shelves I was making. I think I still have CAD drawings, if anyone is interested.

Very Nice. I’ve often thought of using sandblasting to do some glass etching. But I’ve never got around to making anything out of glass yet.

Great job.

Have given away a few, have donated a few to fundraising auctions. I don’t recall selling any of them though..
