This was a fun weekend project styled after the Stickley Music cabinet, dimensions dictated by the availability of crap QS oak plywood. The door panels are solid however. Cut my own veneers for the edge banding. Like all my works, its aniline dye, oil stain, tung oil, and wet sanded between final coats.

Great job Phil. I love Stickley, A&C, Mission era designs. Love the period hardware too. That really sets this piece off. I am going to have to try the aniline dye process on future projects. Looking at this piece and your octagonal table has convinced me that aniline dyes are the way to go. Thanks again for sharing such fine work.

Very nicely done, as are all your A&C pieces. The hardware really adds to your project. Although I’ve never used aniline dye, your finished works convince me I’m going to have to try it. Thanks for posting.

I am also a big fan of A&C, Stickly, and Mission styles.
Have you ever done a blog on your Aniline dye process?
I would like to learn how you do this great looking finish.

Phil,

Very well done! Thanks for the inspiration.

I’ve had one on my to-do list for nearly twenty years now and still haven’t gotten that far on my list! Meanwhile, the music collection has grown and I’ve redesigned it to be about 3’ high and 6’ long with many drawers for sheet music . . . one day, I hope!
