Hey guys!

Here are some pictures of what I would call my first piece of “fine furniture”. It is a mission style aquarium stand that I custom designed and drew in Sketch Up.

The legs and slats are mortise and tenon, the intermediate shelf ends are tongue and groove, the top has breadboard ends, and the drawers are dovetailed. I used 5 brass screws total on the project. Four to attach the table top with wooden clips and one to secure the drawer bottom.

The primary wood is cherry and the secondary wood is pine. The whole piece was coated with shellac, the cherry was stained, and then wiped on 4 coats of poly.

This project is truly a tribute to Tommy MacDonald. I’ve been watching him since his early podcast days and finally got up the nerve to try some of his techniques.

I’m pretty pleased how it turned out, there are always those little things that only you know about though. ;)

Hope you all like it.

Mark
