With the workshop becoming quite crowded with a number of BF of various lumber species, it became evident that a project was long overdue and acquiring any usable workspace a few projects would need to be completed.

We have always been an admirer of period furniture so naturally we wanted to incorporate that detail into whatever we built. Our ‘significant other’ always has excellent ideas for us to advance our woodworking skills so her assistance was greatly appreciated when she came up with this project.

We chose a piece that would have storage, style and be able to house the modern audio and video appliances on hand. The design is one of Glen Huey’s and Maple was the wood of choice with Poplar used on the secondary pieces within the substructure. The finish was done in Tung oil sanded in with 600 grit to highlight the grain, then a final topcoat of Satin Lacquer for protection.

The Mrs. Was quite pleased with the results and we were pleased that we now have more room in the shop to walk around and work!

Hope you enjoy!

Very nicely done ! I love the details. Great looking piece. And just to think it was constructed out of scrap lumber hanging around.
Man…If you used the real good wood how much better would it have come out. LOL

Glen Huey’s design fairly sparkles with your choice of maple, finished to a fine luster. Great job! Thanks for sharing.
