Here is my rendition of a mission style TV console. It features three spindles, which divide the top shelf into two sections for electronic components. Corbels are let into grooves in the solid legs. Through mortise and tenons and dovetail drawers complete the look.
Hardware is from Chown hardware in Portland, OR. Distressed black finish.
The lumber is quarter sawn red oak. Pegs are Walnut. The legs are solid stock, yet laminated for quarter sawn grain on all 4 sides. My prefered method for laminating legs is to glue a 1/8” thick strip to two faces. Once finish planed, the joint line blends seamlessly with the straight-grained stock.
Finish is Rodda #19, topped with two coats of Miller (Valspar) Pre-Cat lacquer.
Construction note: pre-drilling holes for the tabletop fasteners helped when installing the top. Once the carcase is assembled, you will only have room for a stubby manual screwdriver.
Cheers and best of luck with your projects!
