After chatting with a prospective customer for a bit, he told me he wanted to upgrade his entertainment area with an entertainment center and some shelving for the bar area. We were to match the existing bead board wainscoting. That would be easy enough, although everything was pine. Burn, baby, burn, I knew I had a challenge on my hands! Nonetheless, this is what we I ended up building. I also added some functionality to the bar area as well as a shelf around the room for him to display his beer steins. Man, what a collection!!!
Thanks for your eyes and fingers. Pine face frames, moldings and doors with birch plywood casework. Everything matched quite pleasantly. I used ML Campbell products on this project. I used a wipe on stain and sprayed a satin finish. Not too many burn marks to file. Even the cove cuts came out burn free at a moderate speeding setting on the router. I also whipped together a drum sander for the doors based on plans by Pat Hawley. I made a dust collection cover as well (not shown).
-- No matter how many factors go into thinking about a project, there is always one important new discovery to be made.
