Made this pair of corner cabinets out of pine,the finish is about 20 coats of garnet shellac ,0000 steel wool and wax.The interior is general finishes antique white milk paint and wax.Decided to break tradition and go a different way for the glass panel door joinery.

Beautiful. 20 (!) coats of shellac? Why so many?

This cabinet is a real beauty and so nicely done. It looks like an original. Fine work.

Gorgeous! If I ever buy a table saw to cut those long miters with, a corner cabinet like this will certainly be on my to do list. Are the cabinets assembled in two pieces, with the center molding hiding the seam/joint? Or are they both made from boards that run the whole height of the cabinet?

Love the pegged joinery detail on the front.

Two separate cabinets with molding to hide seam,easier to move in the house.20 coats of shellac gave me the antique pine look I was going for.Besides when you start padding on shellac it’s easy to just keep going till you get the look.
