This is my first ever cabinetry project. This is a buffet I designed and built for my wife just before we got married. the base is made out of poplar and the top out of white oak. The base has black polyshade(very forgiving) and gold glazing for a distressed look. Top is finished with danish oil and wax. I built it in a garage that is naturally cooled because it is 3 sides underground. Painted it there and finished it. packed it up to move to the condo where we would be staying which was under renovation at the time. The piece had to sit in the garage for about 2 weeks. That garage had and extreme temperature and humidity difference which caused the piece to stretch in a lot of different directions. Needless to say there are a few touch ups that still need to be made to the finishes but not extremely noticeable unless you are a perfectionist like myself. That is a lesson learned the hard way. Had that not happened it would have turned out far better than I expected.
