This is a TV console I made for my sister. I was asked to make it probably about 9 months ago. That’s what you get when you have a “hobbiest” make your furniture for you.
The design is a modification of one I saw in FWW for a 5’ or taller Entertainment Center.
The wood is Baltic Birch 3/4 plywood and poplar (actually only the legs and the side stripping in poplar).
It is finished with shellac and three coats of poly and a coat of wax. The top has several coats of wax (about 7).
The drawers are full extension.
The photos were taken in my separate finishing room (what other uneducated people might call a garage). I tend to finish in the garage because 1 -its ventilated, 2 – I don’t want to drip/spray/drop/etc finishing stuff in my workroom, 3 – while waiting between coats I can clean up my workshop all the mess I made making the project, and 4 – not so much dust lingering in the air to get into the finish.
