I’ve been building this CD Rack for a coworker for what seems like forever.
This is my own design and is built without formal plans.
It’s solid black cherry and uses stopped dadoes for the shelves and stub
mortise and tenons for the backs. The shelves are tilted back at 5 degrees and
the backs are ripped with a 5 degree bevel so they’re parallel to the back of the sides.
It’s finished with numerous coats of freshly made dewaxed shellac, several coats of BLO and
two topcoats of Original Waterlox.
This project was one of those `What the heck’ projects—I’ve made several various flavors
of this design yet I kept having little problems that I had to go back and tweak.
Guess I’ve been making too many pens and not doing enough flat work lately.
Today, I finished rubbing out the last topcoat and finally got a product I’m pleased with.
All comments and criticisms welcome.
