First I want to thank my wife for all her help, also hallmark for his ideas, also darrell peart for his book. I made the cabinet of oak with walnut pegs. Finish was general medium brown dye, then varathane teak wipe on gel stain, then wipe on general arm a seal oil based. You guys and gals rant and rave about general products, so I drove hundreds of miles and got some arm a seal and I am very impressed. I also had a hard time finding hinges that would open 270 degrees. Also in the process of making a greene and greene billiard cue rack.
