I’m humbled to say that I didn’t build it. You all are such talented woodworkers.
It’s a reno, but it’s far from the hunk a junk that it was. It had clamshell molding on it, ceiling white paint. complete stupidity. In the middle of the matching bookcase now. The woodburn is mine.

The wood burn did come out nice, I am sure there is some nice looking wood under that latex paint. Even though you didn’t build it you improved the design.

thank you for the compliments. the cabinet is mostly plywood. Unfortunately, the matching bookcase has one of those football shaped patches right on the top, but I think it will be mostly invisible when stained. I can only guess, but I think this was home-made(cheaply) many years ago, but not necessarily poorly. It was left behind by the seller of my home. As we updated the room, the bookcases had to go, or be made purty again. Somebody at some time made some poor decisions on fixing it up.
I used oil base. I had tossed around the idea of trying my hand with spraying, but I got nervous about “learning” how to spray, and went with china bristle. Someday maybe I’ll learn how to spray, but I’m glad I didn’t try on this one. When the matching unit is done, they’ll look awesome together.

Have your say...
