This is my latest project. I built this for a wedding gift for my nephew. hopefully this will be a functional piece in their house for many years in the future.

I used milk paint and sanded it with 400 grit sandpaper to try to give a antique look (not sure I was sucessfull or not). Then I applied 2 coats of shellac to everything except the top. I used 4 coats of Spar Urethane on top. Hopefully it will hold up to kitchen use better. Now to make one for my wife. Thanks for looking.

Looks good! I make some primitive furniture like this also. After painting and sanding I will rub in a coat of stain, let dry and then finish with shellac. The stain really adds to the aged look.

Have Fun!
