Well, here’s a project that took waaaaay longer than I expected! Construction was a fairly easy process, and I completed my best mortise and tenons while building the doors. Basically just an oak ply frame trimmed in red oak. Center door lifts up, and outer doors open out…....tried to give it a bit of an industrial look by adding the expanded aluminium door panels. It’s for a 15 yr old, so I think it will go over well. Finish is one coat of cabot exterior cordovan brown (it’s all I had at the time) and dark walnut Watco…...light sanding in between coats.
Next up, a series of increasingly longer shelves mounted on the wall behind teenager #2’s bed…...found a cool plan in “family handyman” magazine…........then a low captains bed with 3 drawers for teenager #3…....stay tuned.
