This is one of those projects that you think about and build in your head a few hundred times untill you finally get fed up of thinking about,and just build it.Atleast thats how it was for me and this little jewel.
Made of figured PNW Big leaf maple and wild cherry this thing sports a ship lapped back,adjustible shelf,raised panels,and hand cut half blind dovetails.It is my first project with half blinds.
Finished with a little dye mix of dark red mahogany and yellow on the maple.Followed by 4 coats of Ruby shellac.2 coats each of garnet and ruby on the cherry followed by 4 blonde on everything out front and sides etc.
Measures 24 1/4” tall by 15 3/4 at widest by 9 3/4 deep.
Was fun to build, alot of hybrid action.I may end up swapping out the knob with a arts n crafts small drop knob ,something with contrast,but we’ll see.Also not exactly sure what to call this thing;bookshelf,stash shelf etc.
Comments and critiques welcome.
