As the title suggests, this piece is made completely of pine. Pine was a good choice for the friends I built it for because they wanted to have a couple of knots for character, and the cost was more attractive, of course. I tried to keep the knots to a minimum, especially on the top. The finish is simple. Red Mahogany stain from Minwax with three coats of wipe-on poly. The finish matches their existing furniture almost perfectly. Open up the doors, and there is one full length, adjustable shelf providing a ton of storage space. They were very pleased with the finished product.

JP, excellent work. This will be a bit of motivation for my next project. I relly like the panels and the finish.

Thanks everyone. I’m going to try to get some pictures of a couple of other things I built after this one including a toddler bed and a workbench.

What an elegant piece. Very nicely proportioned and looks great. I can’t imagine attacking something like this so early in your woodworking life. What’s your next project?

Thanks, Mark, and believe me when I say this project was a major lerning experience. There was a lot of trial and error, and my scrap pile grew by leaps and bounds. I was very pleased with the results, but there were some things I would do different if I had the chance. Live an learn. I hope to start my first bed soon. I don’t own anything I’ve built, and I’m in need of a new bedroom suit. That should keep me busy for awhile.

Hi ,JP
You’ll find out that every time you make something you learn something, no matter how long you’ve been doing it.

I’m impressed-keep up the great work.

I find the only way I could possible stop learning, is if – I stoped woodworking- and thats not a option.

Still learning-still loving it.

Hey JP,

I’m building somthing very similar. Planning to distress it this weekend. I love the top design. FYI, I don’t live that far away.
