Needed a TV console to house the components – center speaker for surround system. ( note Mission speakers ha ha ..I just noted that)
Made with quarter sawn white oak, (a few pieces of red oak in less conspicuous areas) and a piece of plywood or four for the adjustable shelves. Measures 67 long x 29H x 18W.
Finished with shellac, light oak aniline dye and multi coats of satin poly. First time using a dye and I am a believer especially when used in closed in area.
Had the leaded glass door inserts made to measure. I wanted glass so as to allow for infra red remotes also added some colored glass for effect. Trying to mimic Mission period.
All hardware from Lee Valley. I’m lucky as I have Lee Valley store in Ottawa.
Just love quarter sawn oak.!
