Simple Pine Armoire

One of those “simple” projects I bid. Nothing fancy, they just wanted an entertainment Armoire with 3 drawers. Kind of rustic.

Easy right? Turned nightmare quickly after assembly started. Keeping this thing square & straight proved to be a challenge. A couple parts including all 3 drawers were remade.

One of those after-the-fact if I made minimum wage on it I would consider it a moral victory.

Thanks for looking

Nice :)

I need to start work on something like this. My closets aren’t deep enough to hold normal sized hangers.

Nice job. I like the finish a lot. I have struggled staining pine, do you mind sharing any secrets, and your technique and finish on this piece?

Thanks!

Looks good! One of those Where the )*&^^%! did I screw up. Remember making a lot of sides for cat houses, measured everything, thought I did well until assembly and as I started screwing everything together I found out how out of square I was. fortunately my cats were happy with the other features and winter warmth!

Isn’t pine the most difficult wood to work with anyway?

For most it is thought pine is easy to work with. If you really want it to look nice you have to put a lot of work in to it.
