This is the project I’m most happy with and proud of to date. It started out as a gift for my brother/ sister in laws friend. After all the cost and time (mine and my brothers) invested, they decided to keep it for themselves. It is made of quartersawn White Oak and plywood of the same species, with frame and panel construction, with a solid top. It is stained with cherry stain, and about 8 coats of poly sprayed on. I got a sprayer specially for this project, and I’m really glad I did! I am very pleased with the finish. I got the sprayer from Harbor Freight for about $70, the exact same one Rockler sells for about $125. I’ve never used a sprayer before, so I have nothing to compare to, but I was very happy with it. it put the finish on very nicely with a minimum of overspray.
My sister in law is tickled with it. It was a fun project, and I got to spend a good bit of time with my brother working on it. I also got a biscuit joiner and sprayer to add to my tool collection. I also learned a lot, as always.
Thanks to fellow lumber jock Huff, who got the wood for me at an out of state lumber yard he goes to occasionally, and for letting me use his tool to groove the frame and panel pieces.
